PhastTM

Adding value to the emergency planning and response process
In order to plan for emergencies and develop an effective response strategy, a robust understanding of the possible outcomes associated with a release of a hazardous material is vital. Phast is the tool of choice to understand the impact potential associated with a wide range of hazards.
PLANNING FOR EMERGENCIES

Adequate planning for an emergency is central to developing an effective response strategy. Planning for an emergency requires a detailed understanding of the hazards of concern. In the particular case of the chemical process/oil and gas industries, a robust understanding of the possible outcomes (fire, explosion, toxic cloud etc.) associated with a release of a hazardous material is central to the planning process. Key questions that need to be answered are: ●● How large may the impact zone be in various weather conditions? ●● What areas and population groups are at risk of exposure and for how long? Phast is the tool of choice when it comes to addressing these issues.

KEY BENEFITS OF PHAST
■■

Phast enables a detailed analysis of a range of hazardous outcomes (flammable, explosive and toxic) associated with a hazardous event taking into account various factors that impact the development (such as variations in weather conditions.) Phast utilises linked models so that full analysis of an event and associated outcomes can be executed in a single integrated calculation run. Phast incorporates powerful visualisation tools that allow the impact ranges to be imposed on location maps, thus allowing for clearer understanding and communication of the impact zones. The result outputs can be presented in various formats (graphs, tables, commentary). The embedded models are subject to continuous improvement processes and are constantly developed and updated to reflect advances in industry knowledge and technology in general. The program is user-friendly and compatible with popular office word processing, and spreadsheet applications. It has a consistent Windows™ look-and-feel. It includes an on-line electronic help system and a dedicated support helpdesk. Complete documentation of model theory and validation is provided.
