In deep-water operations, offshore installations may face extreme or accidental events in association with general, or site-specific, conditions. Such hazards include: leaks of gas and/ or oil, collisions, human error, structural failure, and blowouts. These emergency events sometimes result in catastrophic consequences that can lead to casualties, property damage and pollution. It is the responsibility of the designer, builder and operator to develop, and integrate, safety measures developed to mitigate the consequences from such hazards.

While systems and instillations are designed to operate to a degree of safety, successful engineering and design should meet not only functional requirements but also HSE & E (health, safety, environment & ergonomics) requirements. HSE & E requirements address safe performance and integrity in extreme and accidental conditions, while functional requirements represent operability in normal conditions. In the process of engineering and design, safety studies are required to assure the integrity of offshore installations in the case of extreme or accidental events.

RINA invites papers from naval architects, class societies, operators, researchers, and builders on all related topics, including:

  • Health, Safety, Environment & Ergonomics (HSE & E)
  • Hazard identification and risk assessment and management
  • Damage assessment
  • Advanced numerical modelling methods
  • Load analysis and the associated structural analysis
  • Rules, guidance and recommended practices
  • Training
