Importance of HAZOP Studies
A Joint Presentation by our UK/USA Experts
HAZOP is the abbreviation of Hazard and Operability study and is internationally recognised as a technique for Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) and identification. The assessment is used to identify potential hazards and operability problems concerning technological and organisational objects that have the potential to deviate from the original design intent.
By systematically identifying and analysing potential hazards, HAZOP studies provide valuable insights to enhance safety, efficiency, and compliance. It is also the foundation of follow-on LOPA and Functional Safety studies, when undertaking PHA.
In this webinar, we provide an overview of HAZOP studies alongside information on how to implement HAZOP across both your national and international sites.
From this joint UK/USA presentation you will gain an understanding of:
• HAZOP preparatory work and the study procedure;
• What happens during and after a HAZOP study and how this relates to your operational optimisation;
• How HAZOP can help you meet national and international regulatory requirements.
This webinar is best for:
- Safety Engineers
- Process Managers
- Environmental Health Safety Specialist
- Risk Engineers
- Process Engineers and Process Designers
- EHS Specialists, Managers, Supervisors and Engineers
