Course Summary

The course “Risk Assessment and Hazard and Operability study (HAZOP)” is to familiarize the engineers/technical-persons working in chemical plants with prevention techniques of the accidents, the conditions that have potential to damage to equipment, injure people, or hazardous to environment, and measurement of these damages. For safe operation and economical production of industries, identification and assessment of various hazards is crucial as industrial processes involve different chemicals and mechanical equipment with potential of deadly accidents.

Hazards are in all places of Chemical Plants. A hazard is not at all times known until an accident occurs, it is required to diagnose the hazards and diminish the danger well in advance of a disaster. For safe operation of each process in chemical industries the following queries can be defined in two parts, the first hazard identification and second risk assessment of possibility, frequency and consequences:

  1. What are the possible hazards?
  2. What are the possible fatalities?
  3. What are the probabilities of incidents?
  4. What are the consequences?
Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) is a method to identify the hazards and danger that prevent the efficient operation of a process. The HAZOP is standard technique and involve of a team work who find out the ways to reduce the possibility of incidents in designing stage and in operational plants. HAZOP have been applied with great attainment in industries to achieve safer, more organized and more durable plants.

This program is an intensive practical and valuable exposure to the most vital, up-to-date information and practical know-how to enable you to participate in hazard studies and specify, design, install and operate the safety and emergency shutdown systems in your plant, using international safety practices.

Who should attend?

This program is for anyone who wants to make an effective risk assessment and HAZOP study on a chemical plant.

Especially for:

  • Operation Managers
  • Industrial Internees
  • Trainers
  • Industrial Trainees
  • HSE Department Employees
