Background & objectives: With increasing development of knowledge and the emergence of new technologies in industry especially in the oil industry and the creation of highly complex systems, the implementation of the principles of safety, health and environmental management has been of particular importance in preventing accidents. This study was conducted to assess risk of oil resevoirs in Amout-E-Arvand Free Zone.
Methods: In this study, FMEA method was used to identify and determine the significance of health, safety and environmental risks.
Results: Based on the results obtained in the process of exploitation of Amout- E-Arvand oil reservoirs, of 14 identified risks, four of them are at critical level, of which 3 risks have been occurred due to human error. These three risks are leakage from LPG reservoirs, explosion and fires (caused by LPG tanks), vehicles and vehicle accident. The occurrence of natural disasters, with the value of RPN (240), has the highest risk.
Conclusion: The use of the FMEA method can also identify and prioritize activities and risk indicators, plan to prevent and eliminate significant risks.
