CHAZOP Introduction Training Workshop April 2017

CHAZOP Study Technique

The control systems hazards and operability (CHAZOP) method provides a means of systematically reviewing the design and operation of a control and safety system to identify potential hazards and/or operability problems. It focuses on how a control or safety system may deviate from the design intent, and draws on the expertise of the team members and their past experience with the design and/or operations of similar facilities.

Course Overview

This 1-day course is designed to deliver expert instruction on the technical content of a CHAZOP session and why they are performed. This includes understanding the principles behind each of the major methods (CHAZOP, What-if? and FMEA) and the fundamentals on CHAZOP methodology, noding, team composition and preparation for a CHAZOP session. The students will then practice what they have learned in preparing drawings and worksheets for a mini CHAZOP session.
