My technical division will be hosting a talk on the 19th January, 2017 at 5:30pm. It is worth 2 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. Since I’m giving it, I expect hoards will have to be turned away at the gates. And it’s a big room, so I need to fill the seats.
A Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) study is a formal, systematic and detailed examination of new or existing facilities. It focuses on the process, rather than risks from ‘outside the pipe’, which are better analyzed using other studies such as HIREC/ HAZID/ HER. A HAZOP assesses the hazard potential, causes and consequences on a facility when there are deviations to the operating conditions, or the manner of operations. Existing safeguards need are reviewed to determine whether they can eliminate the cause or minimize the consequence.
