Introduction

It is universally recognised that for any Company to succeed it must take a proactive approach to risk management. Over the last few years Companies and a number of Countries legislators have been focusing on Process Safety as a method to reduce the risks posed by hazardous industries. Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) is recognised as being a critical tool in the implementation of a successful risk management system.

As Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) studies are now recognised world-wide as being the qualitative risk assessment methodology of choice in the Process Industries, there will be additional focus on this specific aspect of Process Hazard Analysis.

In this programme the delegates will learn:

  • How to apply advanced risk assessment techniques
  • Mechanics of dispersion, fire, explosion and toxic releases
  • The concept of Quantified Risk Assessment “QRA”
  • Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) study methodology
  • HAZOP team leadership

Objectives

Delegates attending this programme will:

  • Understand the concepts of Risk Assessment and Risk Management
  • Understand the estimation and evaluation of risks - Qualitative, Semi-Quantitative and Quantified Risks
  • Techniques for Hazard Identification and Analysis - Check-Lists, Risk Profiling, HAZOP, FMEA and Task-Based Risk Assessment
  • Cause-Consequences Analysis - The Role of Fault Trees and Event Trees in Accident Prevention
  • Understand HAZOP studies their benefits and their short comings
  • Understand the requirements of a Team Leader or Facilitator, scribe and team members during HAZOP studies
  • Be able to facilitate a HAZOP study

 

Training Methodology

Participants will learn by taking part in exercises, syndicate and group workshops, as well as looking at case studies and real life situations.

 

Organisational Impact

In addition to the professional development of staff, the organisation should be able to prioritise resources to demonstrate that process risks are adequately controlled

 

Personal Impact

Attendees will be able to apply skills learnt from this training at a practical level to identify sources of major hazards and to prioritise decisions for their control
