10. Session 4 – Robert Magraw – BakerRisk Europe Limited

A structured risk-based approach to help determine how safe is safe enough

The presentation will examine the characteristics of an effective toxic sheltering strategy, including shelter design and leak tightness, gas detection, ventilation isolation, a clearly defined fallback plan, and the importance of developing a culture that ‘buys-in’ to the strategy.

It will discuss the challenges of maintaining these characteristics and some of the common shortcomings in design, maintenance and operation observed by BakerRisk’s engineers over hundreds of site visits to facilities worldwide.

A structured risk-based approach will be outlined that can be utilised to help determine how safe is safe enough.
