Abiosh Int’l Certificate In Hazard And Operability (Hazop) And Hazard Identification (Hazid) Studies – (Hazop/Hazidcert)



This course is a dual certification course focusing on Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) study and Hazard Identification (HAZID) as well known and well documented methods.

In the first part of the course, participants will be acquainted with HAZOP study used to verify the integrity of design or procedures with respect to safety and operability. HAZOP, or Hazard and Operability Studies is one of a number of risk assessment techniques used to demonstrate compliance with health, safety and environmental standards and legislation. Although HAZOP techniques have traditionally been applied to the process and oil/gas industries, they can be equally applied to other industries, activities and tasks. Ideally HAZOP techniques should be utilized at the development stage as part of the HSE plan as well as for existing systems/processes and process modifications.

HAZOP provides measures of assurance through structured and systematic examination of the design and operability. HAZOP is a highly structured technique, which can consume considerable resources to achieve an effective study. Therefore, the role of the Team Leader is crucial in directing resources where they are most needed so that the study duration is targeted for efficiency.

Participants would be able to develop their HAZOP skills to investigate how a system or plant deviate from the design intent and create risk for personnel and equipment and operability problems.

The second part of the course deals with HAZARD Identification HAZID and equips participants with the know how to conduct a systematic assessment to identify hazards and problem areas associated with plant, system, operation, design and maintenance, using HAZID is used both as part of a Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) and as a standalone analysis for i.e. installation, modification, replacement, upgrading, reduction, isolation, lifting. It is a high level review of potential hazards, based on checklists.

This course provides significant aspects and considerations of HAZOP/HAZID, the tips, tricks, and secrets that analysts use to conduct efficient HAZOP/HAZID; an introduction to the Safety integrity level SIL determination will be introduced and recognition of the layer of protections and protective safety systems. The participants will benefit from the practical approach presented in the course.
