What is HAZOP?

What is HAZOP?

What is HAZOP?

Does anybody know where can I find a good tutorial on hazard an operability analisis (hazop)?

RE: What is HAZOP?


The "bible" on HaZAOP studies was developed by the
American Institute of Chemical Engineers. Contact
them to obtain a copy of "Guidelines For Hazard
Evaluation Procedures", The Center For Chemical
Process Safety, American Institute of Chemical
Engineers, 1985.

RE: What is HAZOP?

Hi Charly,

HAZOP is an acronym for Hazards and Operability Analysis. The technique was pioneered in the UK (ICI in particular) in the '70s, and has been adopted worldwide as a standard methodology for assessing the hazards of a facility, generally a processing or production facility. This is commonly known as a Process Hazard Analysis (PHA).

A HAZOP study is generally 'led' by a HAZOP Team Leader: someone who is qualified to lead these studies by nature of their training and experience. The rest of the study members may comprise process engineering, project engineering, maintenance, operations, inspection, safety, and environmental personnel familiar with the process under study.

If you are interested in becoming qualified to lead HAZOPs, or other "Process Hazard Analysis" (PHA) studies, I suggest you check out AcuTech's training schedule for 1999/2000. There are PHA Team Leader courses in Canada & the US (which cover HAZOP in detail), as well as HAZOP-only Team Leader courses in Asia. It is posted on the website at http://www.acutech-consulting.com/training/ Or I can send you a hard copy if you have trouble viewing this site for any reason.

If it is qualified team leaders you are interested in, please contact me directly (lparchom@acutech-consulting.com), and we can discuss your requirements further.

I hope this helps!

hazop is systematic study of hazrds in process.the process
divided to many system,then it will be study hazop.
the deviation from process parameters like flow,temperature and pressure are investigated.the possible of deviation , consequences and protection to be reviewed.
thanks a lot
