This course provides the knowledge necessary to acquire a consistent approach to achieve an efficient development to effectively manage Process Safety in production facilities.
A hazard and operability (Hazop) study is a design review technique used for hazard identification, and for the identification of design deficiencies that may give rise to operability problems. It 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. Hazop is most commonly applied to systems that transfer or process hazardous substances, or activities where the operations involved can be hazardous and the consequences of failure to control hazards may be significant in terms of damage to life, the environment or property.
Hazid is one of the best-known methodologies to identify potential hazards because it provides a structured approach to identify hazards, potential undesirable consequences, and evaluate the severity and likelihood of what is identified. Hazid involves machine or equipment designers, management and end-users, and ensures a full identification of hazards and safeguard procedures in a workplace.
A hazard analysis considers system state (e.g. operating environment) as well as failures or malfunctions. Hazan is the identification of undesired events that lead to the materialization of a hazard, the analysis of the mechanisms by which these undesired events could occur, and, usually, the estimation of the consequences.
