Overview

This course provides effective, realistic training for HAZOP team members and leaders. Alongside presentations covering all the essential aspects of the method, you will participate in workshops using HAZOP methodology for continuing processes, sequential operations and computer-controlled plant. You will also learn more about the relationship between HAZOP and other hazard identification methods and hazard studies.

Much of the course is dedicated to group work on realistic HAZOP studies, giving team leaders and team members practical experience in their respective roles.

Examples are drawn from a range of industry sectors and typical reports are also provided. You can also take part in discussion and analysis sessions to identify strengths, weaknesses and learning points from the case studies.
