EU HORIZON2020 ENHANCE project’s secondee from Malaysia – Associate Professor Risza Rusli from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) – gave a seminar at the University of South-Eastern Norway’s (USN) Campus Vestfold on 18th of October 2019.

The topic of the seminar was “Dynamic Risk Assessment for Process Safety to Enhance Industrial and Human Performance”.

Dr. Rusli delivered her keynote presentation on different types of risks involved in the process industry and implication of Dynamic Risk Assessment method as a practice in this safety-critical domain. At first, she presented in detail different hierarchy of controls and elimination of hazards based on their potential effect. Then, Dr. Rusli introduced the development of process safety performance tool for Inherently Safer Design and modelling based on the big data coming from a variety of sensors.

The audience  greeted the description of the automatic self-assessment tool with enthusiasm. The attendees discussed, that in case of a successful transfer to maritime domain, the solution could improve safety and efficiency of seafaring – the ultimate goal of ENHANCE – by providing ships and maritime systems with a self-diagnosis tool of a higher accuracy.
