This helps us to prioritize our resources, dealing with the most important or highest risks first with the right level of effort. The process of risk management essentially involves the following ­activities: • Identification of risks; • Analysis or assessment of risk; • Elimination or reduction of risk; • Development and implementation of a management strategy for control and mitigation of the risk; • Monitoring and auditing the management strategy for improvement. Effective management of risk starts from an understanding of the initiating events, their root causes and potential consequences.

Risks that would likely have been perceived as significant by some of the facility groups were not shared with the concerned groups. Equally at fault were significant failings with regard to the lack of communication, which defeated barriers along the way to the incident. The changes to the frequency of use of the new water injection system were not communicated outside of the facility operations team. As a result, there was a belief within the other facility teams that the new water injection system was only in occasional use and did not constitute a corrosion risk.

Risk analysis is concerned with robustness of design and reliability of performance. In this regard it can be viewed as having two main objectives: 1. Safe and reliable equipment design; 2. Development of safeguards to eliminate or minimize loss (of containment) and improve equipment performance. 2 Typical consequence scale for a qualitative risk analysis Rating Consequence Cost 1 2 3 4 5 Very Low Low Moderate High Very High No increase in budget <10% increase in budget 10–20% increase in budget 20–30% increase in budget >30% increase in budget A risk analysis can either be quantitative or qualitative or a suitable combination of both, which depends on the aims and objectives.
