Engineering and design
The ISC has released a guidance document on a risk assessment technique called Delta HAZOP. The traditional HAZOP process is a structured process that, when done well, produces a robust and thorough analysis of failure scenarios and identifies safeguards to manage the risk.
Good Practice in Virtual HAZOP
The global pandemic of COVID-19 changed the world in many ways. Industries and companies had to adapt to all health advice and regulation requirements. Face-to-face meetings were replaced with virtual meetings due to travel restrictions, mandatory quarantine in some locations, the need to maintaining physical distancing and capacity limits. This led to the requirement for the development of this document, which describes good practice in virtual HAZOP meetings. This is a guide based on inputs from ISC members and their lessons learnt to make virtual risk assessments more effective and avoid pitfalls.
Applying Process Safety During Concept Select Phase of a Project
The ISC has released guidance on the application of process safety and inherently safer design principles to the concept selection stage of an engineering project.
