The hazard analysis stage is a very important part of the risk management process, as no action can be made to avoid, or reduce, the effects of unidentified hazards. Hazard analysis relies on a structured and systematic approach to identify potential hazards. Different can be used to perform this task at various stages during the life cycle of the process. These vary from a concept safety review, which is performed as early as possible in the concept stage of the process, to a HAZOP study which can be performed on a fully operational plant.
This course provides an insight into aspects of the identification of hazards, details the process and gives examples to demonstrate practical considerations in running a HAZOP. The course goes further, providing instructions on HAZOP preparation and leadership, covering topics of team selection, planning, scoping, action logging and best industry practices related to Risk Management Methodology. The training will prepare the delegates / participants to take part in HAZID and HAZOP Projects as well as lead them.
