A hazard and operability study (HAZOP) is a structured and systematic examination of a planned or existing process or operation in order to identify and evaluate problems that may represent risks to personnel or equipment, or prevent efficient operation. A HAZOP review also generates an in depth understanding of the process for all participants, leading to a more robust and reliable plant.
A HAZOP review team usually consists of 6 – 10 persons. Depending on the scope and size of the review, it can take anything from 1 day to several weeks. Having a review team which is familiar with the processes of the review not only significantly improves the quality of the outcome but will also shorten the duration of the review.
This course is aimed at operators, engineers, designers and maintenance personnel who will at some point be part of a HAZOP review team. The objectives of this course are to convey the benefits of HAZOP and the role of the HAZOP review in the process safety framework. It will familiarise the participants with the structure and methods of the review, enabling them to be more effective and efficient review team members. The course will also increase the participants’ ability to identify and assess process hazards outside of a review.
The course includes a test which is required for the completion of Unit Standard 19341. Our Unit Standard 19341 is provided through a sub-contracting arrangement with NZTI Ltd.
Course Duration: 1 day
