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.

The training is aimed at academic and technical staff, plus postgraduates, responsible for designing, developing or modifying either small-scale or large-scale processes or operations, where it is necessary that the design intent is efficiently and safely achieved.

As well as providing practical experience of a HAZOP study, the course aims to provide understanding of the following:

  • the definitions of Risk, Hazard and Consequence
  • the HAZOP procedure
  • why, when and how to carry out a HAZOP
  • how to organise a HAZOP
  • how to estimate a HAZOP cost

CANCELLATION

We want our training sessions to run at full capacity to ensure value for money and to get the most from group interactions and discussions. Cancelling attendance at a course should only be done as a last resort (some of our sessions are delivered by external training providers and we would incur a high fee if we need to cancel sessions based on low numbers). Demand is high for our training sessions with many having a waiting list and when a booking is made, others are turned away on the strength of that booking. If you have to cancel a training session we would appreciate as much notice as possible (at least 48 hours), and this can be done via the "Go To My Bookings" link.
