ObjectiveThis session will provide a historical overview of ammonia refrigeration RAGAGEP variants and summarize IIAR 9's Minimum System Safety Evaluation.
DescriptionRecognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices (RAGAGEP) are written documents intended for use in the design, installation, operation, and maintenance of process equipment. There has been a move in the ammonia refrigeration industry towards standardization, yet there are historical variants which often cause confusion. This session will analyze historical RAGAGEP variants and summarize IIAR 9's MSSE requirements.

SpeakersMiguel Zepeda
ObjectiveHuman factors in process safety are often misunderstood or confused with ergonomics; this presentation will help make that distinction very clear and provide a base knowledge on human factors that is consistent with the views of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS).
DescriptionThis presentation will discuss the broad definition of human factors, how they present themselves throughout other CalARP program elements, and when facilities should consider human factors issues. Additionally, an overview of the method used by Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) to determine whether the qualifying stationary sources are systematically and adequately addressing human factors concerns as specified by CalARP regulations.

DescriptionThe CalARP 201 class is intended for those with a basic understanding of the CalARP regulation. It will provide a brief review of applicability and program level determination and differences, with an emphasis on detailed examples of compliance related to the various program elements (PHAs, MI, SOPs etc.) for prominent industries.
    
PRESCRIPTIVE VS. PERFORMANCE BASED EMERGENCY RESPONSE    W-A1   100656
Wednesday     8am to 10am

SpeakersEileen Woodbury, Scott Melton
ObjectiveRecognizing the difference between prescriptive and performance based activities before and during an emergency event.
DescriptionCalARP facility emergency response & preparedness requires both complying with regulations & applying performance based decisions with a good action plan. No emergency event follows a prescriptive course, thus we are always confronted with a need for performance based decisions. During this course we will show how quickly prescriptive only thinking can lead to a less effective response, whereas a combination of the two can lead to success.

ObjectiveUnderstand key elements of new PSM/CalARP Requirements for CA Petroleum Refineries, with an emphasis on human factors and facility applicability.
DescriptionState-PSM and CalARP requirements applicable to California refineries were finalized and made effective on October 1, 2017. Cal/OSHA's requirements are driven by a separate PSM regulation focused on petroleum refineries, and CalEPA/CalOES requirements include a new program level (Program 4), initially applying primarily to petroleum refineries. The course will focus on understanding and regulating these requirements.
    
MAXIMIZING HAZOP/LOPA QUALITY    TH-A3   100662

SpeakersSteve Maher
ObjectiveThis presentation will focus on tuning team sessions and documentation to maximize quality, with an emphasis on optimization for MOC/PSSR and DMR.
DescriptionAlthough PSM, requiring a good-quality PHA, was promulgated in the United States in 1992, and HAZOP Study techniques date back to the mid-1970's, the HAZOP Study technique (and companion techniques such as LOPA) can still present challenges in consistently applying PHA in a high-quality fashion. This presentation will identify ways to maximize quality, with an emphasis on optimization for MOC/PSSR and DMR.
