Advanced HAZOP Masterclass
17th October 2018 - 18th October 2018
In this 2-days workshop, Alan will introduce numerous class exercises based on real life case to aid in delegates’ understanding of the topics throughout the course.
Delegates will be firstly introduced to refresher topics of HAZOP such as bowties, swiss cheese and LOPA, the human factors and the limitation of HAZOP and its operability. Afterwards, Alan will touch on the roles and responsibility of HAZOP team members and leaders and the games people play and its hidden agenda.
Other related and alternative studies to HAZOP will be introduced too in detail and Alan will give out class exercises to delegates on how to pick the best approach to safety study depending on different scenarios. Class exercises will also be introduced to delegates on how to determine nodes on drawings, and on how to determine causes and consequences based on given scenarios and on how to determine the effectiveness of the safeguards put in place and on how to set appropriate performance standards.
On the last day, Alan will be touching on the planning and preparation stage for HAZOP study and on how to record HAZOP and conducting HAZOP Risk Assessment such as the usage of Risk Matrix and the ALARP principle and on how to determine if the controls are ALARP. Delegates will be taught on HAZOP recommendations, how to write, follow-up and close the study.
A class exercise on Vendor, Licensor and Package HAZOPs will be introduced and discussion will revolve around the topic by focusing on differences around the interface. Before the final wrap-up, he will address the key challenges faced by many practitioners on why ‘Start-up’ operation is such a problem and how to identify the hazards in start-up more effectively.

Key Learning Objectives
This course is aimed at new and experienced team leaders who wish to develop their HAZOP and PHA skills further. It focuses on those topics about which very little guidance is freely available, including both soft (facilitation) aspects and technical subjects. Participants will leave the course with a greatly improved understanding of the modern HAZOP technique and numerous suggestions for how they can improve their HAZOP and PHA studies. The course is intended to be an open course using generic (non-proprietary) examples and case studies, but can be adapted with site specific case studies if available.
