Hazards And Operability (HAZOP)

Risk management can be defined as the collection of culture, processes and structures that are directed towards realising potential opportunities whilst managing adverse effects. Risk assessment can be carried out via the use of various methods, tools and risk assessment schemes.


Hazards and operability (HAZOP) is a qualitative method analysis that is developed to identify risks and operational problems through the effects of deviations from design conditions in industrial process plants. The analysis focused around a number of guide words which are derived from method study techniques. The guide words ensure that the questions posed to test the integrity of each part of the design will explore every possible way in which the operation could deviate from the design intention.


The main elements that are in consideration when conducting a HAZOP are: –

  • Intention
  • Deviation
  • Causes
  • Consequences
  • Safeguards
  • Corrective action


The objectives of carrying out a HAZOP study: –

  • To check a design
  • To decide whether and where to build
  • To decide whether to buy a piece of equipment
  • To obtain a list of questions to put to a supplier
  • To check running instructions
  • To improve the safety of existing facilities
