HAZOP Leadership and Management

Topic Safety

CPD Hours 18

Overview

This course is also available online

This course is designed to help those experienced in the HAZOP technique to understand best practice in HAZOP leadership and management.  

You will learn how to apply the HAZOP technique, and how to plan and manage study programmes effectively. You will also learn how to lead study teams effectively to ensure successful project execution. Case studies will allow you to undertake a range of project team roles and provide the opportunity to guide a virtual team through the HAZOP process.

An e-certificate will be issued to candidates who attend the whole course and pass an end-of-course assessment. Please note that certification does not act as IChemE HAZOP leader accreditation / endorsement.

  • estimate the programme requirements for the successful completion of a study
  • use facilitation techniques to motivate the team and keep them on task
  • avoid common problems encountered during study meetings, including challenging behaviours
