This event has been cancelled. If you have any questions, please contact the event planner directly.

Are you looking to improve your skills as a HAZOP leader?

Do you want to become a more competent HAZOP leader?

Are you looking for some refresher training on the HAZOP methodology?

Are you looking to continuously improve the way you conduct HAZOP studies?

Do you want HAZOP studies to be more effective?

Are you interested in how best to apply the HAZOP technique to an existing process and keep the HAZOP evergreen through the revalidation process?

The HAZOP methodology is a well-established technique used throughout industry for hazard identification and risk assessment. The technique was originally developed in the 1960’s by ICI and guidance on its use was first published in the 1970’s following the Flixborough disaster where an inadequately designed modification led to a large vapour cloud explosion killing 28 people.

The technique is formally recognised by many regulators in many parts of the world and details of the HAZOP methodology are outlined in the internationally recognised standard (IEC: 61882 - Hazard and operability studies {HAZOP studies} - application guide).

ABB Consulting has provided training in the HAZOP technique for more than 20 years and trained hundreds of personnel. ABB has also conducted thousands of HAZOP studies for many clients across many industrial sectors. They have a large pool of experienced HAZOP leaders.

This new course has been developed by ABB’s experienced leaders by reflecting upon those years of experience. ABB have identified both good and best practice techniques to further enhance the methodology and develop advanced HAZOP techniques.

Employing advanced HAZOP techniques ensures a greater depth of review is achieved, links to LOPA studies are built, good action specification is implemented, links to alarm management and integrity management.

Traditionally the HAZOP technique has been applied during the detailed design stage of a project. This course will show how the advanced HAZOP technique can be applied retrospectively to an existing process and how the HAZOP study can be re-validated and kept evergreen.

The course is aimed at reflecting upon existing guidance and providing new improved guidance for experienced leaders. The course is also aimed at providing refresher training for experienced leaders.  Note that this course builds upon ABB's existing four day Hazard Study Leader's Course. The four day course or suitable alternative is a precursor to the Advanced HAZOP training course
