Maximise your effectiveness in HAZOP study teams
HAZOP study is one of the most widely used hazard identification methods and has found applications in many different industries. Many potential problems can be identified by the examination of new, modified or existing designs, procedures and operations using the systematic and structured approach of HAZOP. For maximum effectiveness a HAZOP study requires skilled leaders as well as experienced and committed team members.
This well-established, integrated course provides effective HAZOP training for both team leaders and team members. As well as presentations covering all essential aspects of the method, there are workshops on HAZOPs for continuous processes, sequential operations and computer-controlled plant. The relationship between HAZOP and other hazard identification (HAZID) methods and hazard studies is discussed. Participants with experience in HAZOP study should consider applying as a team leader. Newcomers to the technique will benefit from attending as a team member. Participants attending as team leaders must have experience of HAZOP. Team members may have little or no experience of HAZOPs, although some background will be helpful.
Introduction and basis of HAZOP
– The background to HAZOP and its detailed methodology, covering the main areas of application.
Procedures, recording, batch HAZOP and computer controlled processes
– Detailed coverage of essential aspects of the technique, covering both meetings and important applications: illustrated by workshops for all leaders and members.
– Illustrated consideration of criteria; prioritisation of study actions. The underlying features of human behaviour with relevance to HAZOP study.
Hazard studies 1–6
– An overview and illustration of other hazard studies and hazard identification (HAZID) methods, including their relationship to HAZOP study.
– Practice in team work showing the application of HAZOP with team leader and team member roles; case studies are taken from the petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries; reviews of exercises are included.
– A comprehensive course manual is included to be kept as a permanent reference and guide
Who should attend?
– experienced HAZOP team members who are moving on to team leadership
– those who need to refresh and update their HAZOP experience
– engineers and other technical personnel who are new to HAZOP study
– those with safety and project management responsibilities
Team leaders will learn
– how to be a good leader, emphasised by practice and reviews – how to manage HAZOP studies
– the importance of pre-study preparation
– how to work effectively with the team secretary and the team members
Team members will learn
– how HAZOP study works
– the role and responsibilities of a team member
– how to become a valuable team member
Over 50% of the course time is allocated to group work on realistic HAZOP case studies, giving practice in their respective roles for both team leaders and team members. Examples are drawn from a range of process industries and typical reports are also provided. Participants take part in discussion and analysis sessions to identify strengths, weaknesses and learning points from the case studies. A demonstration of computer software for recording HAZOP study is provided.
