HAZOP Study & Risk Analysis

HAZOP Study and Risk Analysis Certification are specially designed for engineers who had prior knowledge related to hazard & operability study and wish to enhance their knowledge in hazard and risk analysis.

HAZOP study is a systematic review of processes or operations to examine the possibilities of any undesirable consequences that can occur due to the deviation in the actual design or operational intent. This method can be used for both batch processes and continuous processes that can be taken to evaluate written procedures.

After the review process, the HAZOP team lists out causes and consequences of deviation along with already existing safeguards that protect against deviation. In case of insufficient or poor safeguards, the team suggests relevant actions to minimize the severity of the risk.

The total duration of this course 8 days with 2 hours of class per day helps even candidates with no prior knowledge on Hazard and Operability Study can also equip the adequate knowledge quickly on HAZOP. This subject learning resource is developed on the basis of oil & gas industry, one of them being Automated Continuous Processes.
