IEM Shout Out – Talk on HAZOP – A Practical Approach

January 12, 2017

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.

Shout Out – HAZOP Training 2016/08

July 19, 2016

My organization (not IEM this time) has a course on HAZOP on the 16th August, 2016. It is worth 6.5 CPD points, and held at (wait for it) Hilton PJ. 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 study is a formal and systematic and detailed examination of the process and engineering intentions 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 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
