HAZOP Study for Team Leaders and Team Members

Topic Safety

CPD Hours 18*

Price IChemE member £1080 + VAT, non-member £1296 + VAT

Overview

Live course – from 5 October 2022, 14:00–17:00 BST.
Alternative dates – from 7 November, 10:00–13:00 AWST/MYT.

This online course provides effective, realistic training for HAZOP team members and new team 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.

If you have little or limited experience as a HAZOP team member, you should register for the course as a team member, whilst experienced team members, those new to team leadership and leaders in need of a refresher, should register as a team leader.

Teaching will be delivered via three live modules (approximately two–three hours in length each) and pre-recorded video content for independent study.

An e-certificate will be issued at the end of the course to confirm attendance and CPD hours logged. Please note that you must attend all modules to receive the certificate.
