Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP) is a structured and systematic technique for system examination and risk management. In particular, HAZOP is often used as a technique for identifying potential hazards in a system and identifying operability problems likely to lead to nonconforming products. HAZOP is based on a theory that assumes risk events are caused by deviations from design or operating intentions. Identification of such deviations is facilitated by using sets of “guide words” as a systematic list of deviation perspectives. This approach is a unique feature of the HAZOP methodology that helps stimulate the imagination of team members when exploring potential deviations.
This course is aimed at enabling those involved in plant or installation modifications and projects to contribute meaningfully in Hazard and Operability Studies. This will ensure that the design and operation meet all safety, health and environmental as well as operability requirements. Further appropriate post-course experience should enable mastering the skills to take on a Hazard and Operability Study Leader role.
