* This course is now full – register your interest in future dates.
This online 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.
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), alongside pre-recorded video sessions for independent study issued before/between modules.
