Welcome to ADEPP Academy

ADEPP Academy provides a variety of technical solutions designed to help the hazardous
projects to achieve maximum value. We are a global company with office locations in the
United Kingdom and France.

ADEPP Academy has extensive experience in process safety engineering, Heath, Safety and
Environmental (HSE) management system throughout a broad spectrum of industries such
as Oil & Gas onshore and offshore, Refineries, Petrochemical, Power Stations, Heavy
Industries, Marine Terminals, Petroleum Tank farms, Dangerous product depots, Space
industries, Steel Making industries, Railway companies, Food industries, Government &
Municipality, law firms, Insurance companies and other consulting organisations.

Our mission is to become the leading international provider of senior process safety
professionals, internet-based monitoring, training and expert support on risk management
in health, safety, environmental and quality issues to process industries world-wide,
through the ADEPP monitor owned by ADEPP Academy in UK.

What is ADEPP?

The core product of ADEPP Academy is a unique, sophisticated suite of risk-management
software known as ADEPP ™ (acronym for Analysis and Dynamic Evaluation of Project
Processes).  This operates online and in a Windows ™ environment.  It identifies and
analyses the state of any process function, applying static and dynamic simulations, and
elucidates the risk envelope for a particular function or the whole process.  Users interact
with the software to investigate various risk mitigation scenarios, comparing feasible
outcomes against criteria such as cost and regulatory compliance, and are guided towards
optimised solutions. ADEPP can be used in both stand-alone mode or integrated with
customers' other programs.  It can import their data and feed back results from its
simulations.  This gives the user a comprehensive and comprehensible understanding of
highly complex industrial situations.  It enables intelligence-based decisions about optimal
levels of risk, cost and monetary benefit.
Customers may increase and sustain their profitability by applying ADEPP to manage their
assets in many ways.  For example:

Several products are derived from ADEPP to suit particular needs. Products that address
specific technical applications are currently: ADEPP HSE Case, ADEPP Maintenance Manuals,
ADEPP Process Data Audit, and a series of online ADEPP monitors for HAZOP, HAZID, SIL,
HSEMS, BOW-TIE, Performance Standards and other project HSE studies.  

Why ADEPP monitor?

Risk analysis and mitigation is an essential duty in directing a profitable, sustainable
business.  Company directors and managers in process industries have legal, fiduciary and
moral responsibilities to reduce the risks of accident, human error, fatality and
environmental pollution in the design and operation of their industrial plants. Therefore
directors need to be sure of the competence of technologists and operators, especially in
the critical areas of health, safety, quality and environment (HSEQ).

Process industries include power generation; manufacture of pharmaceutics, food products,
and petrochemicals; petroleum extraction, oil and gas refining. The complexity of their
processes demands that technical staff be competent and highly trained.  Many regulatory
and insurance-indemnity pressures insist that the training is formal and certified to (inter)
national standards. However, removal of key staff from plant operation is disruptive and
expensive; many skills are best improved in a hands-on context; and sending expert
trainers to scattered sites is expensive and often impractical. Ideally, training should be
delivered on-site, customised to the particular plant and the varied needs of staff.  It should
be available in short modules at convenient times, and progressively accumulate to satisfy
recognised standards of competence.  Traditional solutions to these needs are
unsatisfactory because they entail too much compromise.

ADEPP monitor enables directors, operations managers and technologists to fulfil their HSEQ
responsibilities in a highly cost-effective and convenient way, without compromise.  ADEPP
monitor uses the Internet, company intranets to deliver instruction and enable new skills to
be practised in a local, safe environment. Training and learning is integrated with
maintenance and design, to progressively achieve excellence in all aspects of risk
A growing number of companies use Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) to improve the mechanical
integrity of their plants. This methodology systematically prioritises risk levels in pressure
equipment, so that leak detection and repair can focus on higher-risk equipment.  

ADEPP monitor integrates data from diverse origins, and extends the RBI approach, by
simulating risks and forecasting outcomes based on more than the simple history of a
particular plant.  Hence maintenance decisions can be made in a more intelligent way, and
costs reduced.  For a contractor, ADEPP monitor provides a sophisticated platform for
planning, and winning profit from, planned maintenance.  
The electronic archiving capabilities of ADEPP monitor can prepare a comprehensive record
of input forces and resources, processing responses, and all kinds of outputs. ADEPP
dynamic simulation can analyse this accumulated data, then identify, characterise and cure
previously "unknown" causes of large losses. The ADEPP Process Data Audit is analogous to
the examination of an aircraft's flight recorder ("black box") by accident investigators.  

When a process plant is being designed, risk assessments should be an integral part of the
design process.  But in practice, many design engineers perform risk assessments as an
afterthought - a formality required by regulations. Many process-engineering customers
complain that assessments of risks and certification of quality and safety levels are done
too late - when a plant's design is almost completed and many procurement orders have
already been issued.  Tardy assessment increases costs: a industry "rule of thumb" says
that if fixing a mistake during design costs $1, fixing it during construction costs $10, and
during operation $100.  

ADEPP monitor gives engineers firm guidelines for assessing risks as design evolves and
construction proceeds. ADEPP monitor’s models respond to design changes that are
suggested during procurement, construction, commissioning and initial test runs. ADEPP
monitor inform decision-makers of the consequences of changes, enabling risks to stay
consistent with primary design parameters and regulations.  Therefore intelligent
application of the ADEPP monitor will save a considerable proportion of the losses resulting
from current practices, and provide evidence of compliance with regulations.

ADEPP monitor is used for the following end-users:

  • Design engineers and technicians (in consulting engineer firms and plant manufacturers)
  • Process plant operators (technicians and managers)
  • Maintenance engineers and technicians (employed by plant owners and contractors)
  • Troubleshooting engineers (owners, contractors and consultants)
  • Inspectors and specialists with special responsibilities for health, safety, quality
    assurance and environmental protection (plant owners, consultants, regulatory
    agencies, insurers, certification agents).  

ADEPP History

ADEPP has been developed in 1994 by Fabienne F. Salimi expert in Dynamic Simulation and
Frederic Salimi expert in Safety and Reliability in France. The French governmental bodies
and industrial organisations have supported development of ADEPP both financially and
technically. ADEPP is protected by APP (Agence pour Protection des Programmes) in France.

ADEPP Academy has been established in
2007 in UK to assist the industrial projects by the
customised online HSE services by ADEPP monitor.
