Overview

This course is also being delivered online – view details >>

"What an excellent course, it was one of the best I have been on in my career. Well thought out, clear and delivered superbly by real experts." 

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. 

You'll experience different team roles through case studies and be given the chance to practise guiding 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). 

Learning outcomes

By the end of this course you will understand how to: 

  • prepare for a HAZOP study meeting and programme – including defining the scope of the study and choosing the team
  • choose nodes (parts of the drawings or operation for HAZOP study)
  • 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
  • formulate the HAZOP study report
  • understand the team leader’s role in the implementation of recommendations and the management of the process.

Who will benefit

Anyone with experience of the HAZOP technique who is required to lead HAZOP studies. It will also benefit process safety engineers, loss prevention specialists, production engineers, process design engineers, project engineers, process programmers and instrument control engineers.
