A “Hazard & Operability” (HAZOP) study is a detailed process of identifying not only hazards but operability problems as well. Generally, a HAZOP analysis deals with the identification of potential deviations from the design intent, examination of their possible causes, assessment of their consequences and likelihood of occurrence as well as review of existing safeguards.
Our certified HAZOP leader along with experienced scribes will guide the multi-disciplinary team of project and operations staff through each HAZOP session in order to ensure comprehensive risk management by providing state-of-the art technical and organizational solutions.
A HAZOP training is also provided before session start for all participants to familiarize with the selected nodes of Piping and instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs), guide words and the HAZOP methodology in general.
