HAZOP Study for Team Leaders and Team Members, 30 October - 1 November 2018, Perth


This course explores best practice in HAZOP leadership and management. You will learn about the application of the technique and how to plan and manage study programmes more effectively. You will also learn how best to lead study teams to ensure maximum effectiveness and successful project execution.

Case studies will allow you to undertake a range of project team roles and provide the opportunity to guide a team through the HAZOP process.

Certificates will be issued to candidates that pass an end-of-course assessment (certification does not act as IChemE HAZOP leader accreditation/endorsement).
