Risk Management

HAZOP

This course is designed to train operators in the practical aspects of HAZOP facilitation, providing the skills and knowledge to become proficient HAZOP Facilitators. The principles and practice, as adopted within the process industries, are demonstrated by case study material, selected to illustrate a wide range of applications

Learning outcomes
After successful completion of the training, candidates would be able to understand

  • Gain skills and techniques in the facilitation of a HAZOP workshop.
  • Learn about the origin of HAZOPs and their development.
  • Learn why HAZOPs are carried out and what they deliver.
  • Practice the HAZOP methodology.
  • Gain skills in HAZOP logging (minute taking).
  • Learn about the requirements for HAZOP reporting and record keeping.
  • Learn about the key deliverables from a HAZOP.
  • Understand how Hazard identification can predict accidents and incidents
