Course description

Hazard Study Leaders Training course

Hazard studies (including HAZID and HAZOP) are an essential element in managing the Process Safety impact of new projects and the ongoing operation of existing plants. 

The techniques covered in this course are directly applicable to all industry sectors including chemicals, petrochemicals, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals and utilities. They are well proven and highly effective for identifying hazards, assessing risks and developing improvement plans. This course will train you in the TÜV Rheinland Industrial Services techniques of the 8 stage hazard process and will develop the necessary skills to lead a team in carrying out hazard studies.

The 8 stage hazard study process covers the full lifecycle of a project. It starts at the feasibility stage of a project with a study of the inherent safety of the project concept. The 8 stage hazard study process then mirrors the development phases of the project through detailed design, construction, commissioning, and ongoing operation. At each stage there is a hazard study technique which aligns with the needs and level of development of the project. 

The 8 stage hazard study process has been developed by TÜVR Industrial Services over many years following the invention of HAZOP studies, to include HAZID studies to identify major accident hazards in early process design. This phased approach to Process Safety assessments during the life of the project reduces the likelihood of discovering significant safety or environmental problems in the later stages of the project and ensures cost effective risk management. The TÜVR hazard study process can be applied to continuous and batch processes, non-chemical systems and PLC control systems, new projects, modifications, and existing plants.
