Revolutionizing Safety and Security in the Chemical and Process Industry: Applying the CHESS concept

Genserik Reniers & Nima Khakzad
This paper argues that a new concept, summarized as ‘CHESS’, should be used in the chemical industry to further substantially advance safety (where we use the term in a broad sense, that is, safety and physical security, amongst others). The different domains that need to be focused upon, and where innovative initiatives should be taken are Cluster-thinking and cooperation, High transparency and efficient inspections, Education and training, Security integration, and Safety innovation. Since society has...

Improving Safety on Railways Using Systems Engineering and Forecasting

Andrei Loukianov, Coen Van Gulijk, Pieter Van Gelder, Sarah Deacon, Valentina Viduto & Markus Stumptner
Allocation of resources to improve security is crucial when we consider people’s safety on transport systems. We show how a system engineering methodology can be used to link business intelligence and railway specifics toward better value for money. A model is proposed to determine a probability of a success in service management. The forecasting model is a basic Markov Chain. A use case demonstrates a way to align statistical data (crime on stations) and probability...

Vulnerability and Security Risk Assessment of a Thermal Power Plant Using SVA Technique

Abbas Sadeghi, Mousa Jabbari, Ali Alidoosti & Mohsen Rezaeian
The philosophy behind the creation of every organization is bound up with the objectives for each it has been created. There are always factors threatening the continuation of the organization’s activities or even its existence. Some of these factors involve common threats in the security area which should be identified, assessed and controlled through a systematic risk management pattern. In the present study, Security Vulnerability Assessment (SVA) technique and a local version of SVA-Pro software...
