Digital process hazard analysis (DPHA) from DEKRA
Safer processes with less effort
With its digital, systematic process hazard analysis, the expert organization DEKRA is improving safety in process industries while reducing resourcing requirements. Digital Process Hazard Analysis (DPHA) combines the advantages of computer technology with the DEKRA experts’ specialist knowledge of reliable and safe processes, optimizing the deployment of staff and enabling faster results, while improving safety.
- Preparation: DEKRA experts work with the operator to gather the necessary information and determine relevant scenarios.
- Simulation: Thanks to process modeling and computational support, a computer simulation by Mobatec Modeller calculates the causes, consequences, and safeguards, operating much more quickly and precisely than human brainstorming.
- Review of results: Once the computer generates its suggestions, humans can review the results, make recommendations, and consider additional safeguards or focus on problem solving.
