HAZOP Study and Risk Analysis is primarily designed for engineers who have already undergone courses related to Hazard and Operability study (HAZOP) and want to improve their proficiency and skills further.

The program has been split over 2 hours/day for 8 days and is also ideal for those who have no previous knowledge on HAZOP however can learn quickly. The course material is specially made, keeping in mind the kind of facilities available in the oil and gas industry, one of them being Automated Continuous Processes.

HAZOP study is to carefully review a process or operation in a systematic manner to determine whether deviations from the design or operational intent can lead to undesirable consequences. This technique can be used for continuous or batch processes and can be adopted to evaluate written procedures. The HAZOP team lists potential causes and consequences of the deviation as well as existing safeguards protecting against the deviation. When the team determines that inadequate safeguards exist for a credible deviation, it usually recommends the action be taken to reduce the risk.

HAZOP Course Objectives:

  • Apply advanced process HAZOP and risk assessment techniques
  • Discuss mechanics of dispersion, fire, explosion and toxic releases
  • Explain the concept of Quantified Risk Assessment ‘QRA’ and the HAZOP study methodology
  • Practice HAZOP team leadership
  • Understand the concepts of risk assessment and risk management
  • Understand the estimation and evaluation of risks – qualitative, semi-quantitative and quantified risks
  • Apply techniques for hazard identification and analysis – checklists, risk profiling, HAZOP, FMEA and task-based risk assessment
  • Apply 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
  • Facilitate a HAZOP study

Who should attend HAZOP Training?

HAZOP Training in India can take up by those who are involved in the risk management process from any levels of designation such as engineering, process operations, maintenance, production as well as health and safety aspirants.


HAZOP Study and Risk Analysis Certification assessment has been conducted by a series of case study exercises and a certificate of competency is attained on the course subject.
