HAZOP Study & Risk Analysis for HSE Specialists

HAZOP Study and Risk Analysis is primarily designed for engineers who have already undergone courses related to Hazard and Operability study (HAZOP) and want to improve their proficiency and skills further.

The program has been split over 2 hours/day for 8 days and is also ideal for those who have no previous knowledge on HAZOP however can learn quickly. The course material is specially made, keeping in mind the kind of facilities available in the oil and gas industry, one of them being Automated Continuous Processes.

HAZOP study is to carefully review a process or operation in a systematic manner to determine whether deviations from the design or operational intent can lead to undesirable consequences. This technique can be used for continuous or batch processes and can be adopted to evaluate written procedures. The HAZOP team lists potential causes and consequences of the deviation as well as existing safeguards protecting against the deviation. When the team determines that inadequate safeguards exist for a credible deviation, it usually recommends the action be taken to reduce the risk.
