A Hazard and Operability study is a formal and systematic and detailed examination of the process and engineering intensions of new or existing facilities which assesses the hazard potential and effects on the facility as a whole when operation is outside of the design envelope, or individual items of equipment malfunction.

This half-day course is designed to educate participants in the HAZOP process from the perspective of a HAZOP team member. It is meant to provide both instruction and workshop sessions so that the participants:
•    Are familiar with the concept of ‘risk’
•    Are familiar with the theory behind HAZOP
•    Are familiar with the actual HAZOP workshop process
•    Have expectations as to what the HAZOP will (and won’t provide)
•    Understand what deliverables can be expected from a HAZOP
•    Have the opportunity to participate in HAZOP exercise in a safe environment
•    Opportunity to share HAZOP experiences

At the end of the session, the participants should:
•    Understand the responsibilities of all parties in the HAZOP
•    Have experience in a HAZOP session.
•    Understand the outcomes from a HAZOP session
