Risk Profile Configuration – ProSET®

The Risk Profile is managed by clicking on Tools -> SIL Determination -> Risk Profile Configuration.

The Risk Profile is a matrix (or table) showing the relationship between Hazard Consequences and Risk Frequency targets.

Consequence

Click on ‘+’ to add a new Consequence to a Category or right click on a Consequence to edit or delete that Consequence.

Edit Risk Profile Consequence

Edit Risk Profile Consequence

The following fields are required for each Consequence:

  • Is Active – Tick the checkbox of this Consequence to be “Active”.  Unticked (Inactive) Consequences are not available to be selected in a Hazard
  • Description – The description of the Consequence
  • Prefix – A combination of this value and the Consequence Category prefix will be the abbreviated description of this Consequence ie. S-5 for a Safety Consequence
  • Number of Potential Fatalities/Injuries Averted (NPFA) – The number of fatalities for each risk target. Used in Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) calculations (Safety Consequences Only)
  • Implied Cost of Averting Fatalities/Injuries (ICAF (£)) – The costs per fatality/injury averted. Used in Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) calculations (Safety Consequences Only)
  • Broadly Acceptable Risk (/yr) – Risk after proposed risk reduction measures. Used in Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) calculations (Safety Consequences Only)
  • Target Risk Frequency (/yr) – The numerical severity of the hazard consequence as applied to employee safety, financial (asset protection), the environment and reputation.
    Note: When conducting an analysis for a Continuous SIF the units of the Target Risk Frequency will be converted into per hour (by dividing my 8760)

Consequence Categories

Risk Profile Category Manager

Risk Profile Category Manager

The Consequence Categories can be edited within the Category Manager by clicking on Tools -> SIL Determination -> Risk Profile Configuration -> Category Manager.

Click on ‘+’ to add a new Consequence Category or right click on a Category to edit or delete that Category.

The following fields are required for each Consequence Category:

  • Description – The title of the Category ie. Safety
  • Prefix – A combination of this value and the Consequence prefix will be the abbreviated description of the Consequence ie. S-5 for a Safety Consequence
  • Category Options
    • Is Safety – Tick the checkbox for this Category to be a “Safety” Category.  Cost Benefit Analysis is only conducted on Safety Consequences
    • Apply Occupancy – Tick the checkbox for Occupancy Conditional Modifiers to be applied to Consequences within this Category
    • Apply Probability of Ignition – Tick the checkbox for Probability of Ignition Conditional Modifiers to be applied to Consequences within this Category
    • Apply Vulnerability – Tick the checkbox for Vulnerability Conditional Modifiers to be applied to Consequences within this Category
