- Process Safety
- Duration : 5 days
There are numerous hazards associated with chemical processes. The process designer must be aware of these hazards and ensure that the risks involved with these hazards are reduced to acceptable levels; or as some would say; as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP); through the application of engineering principles and proven engineering practice. The hazard and operability study (HAZOP study) is a systematic technique for identifying all plant or equipment hazards and operability problems.
By attending this workshop you will gain a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts and methodology of the HAZOP study, risk assessment and risk reduction.
The aim of this course is to let the candidates acquire a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts and methodology of the HAZOP study technique, risk assessment and risk reduction. Specifically, the candidates are expected to:
- Gain an understanding of the different major techniques used for hazard identification, and a detailed knowledge of the HAZOP study technique.
- Gain basic skills necessary to conduct a HAZOP study.
- Be able to provide significant improvement in operability by optimizing operator interactions with the process and reducing the risk of human error.
- Acquire knowledge necessary to prepare for lead, generate, report on and follow up on HAZOP studies.
- Acquire skills required to lead multidisciplinary teams undertaking HAZOP studies.
- Be able to suggest possible mitigating measures to reduce or control identified risks.
Engineers of all disciplines, safety/environment personnel, plant operators, area managers, heads of maintenance, in addition to those involved in the management of process plants.
