Tools, techniques, applications and limitations.
Hazard identification is the first step of the risk assessment process, and any hazard which is not identified cannot be effectively controlled.
This course provides an understanding and awareness of the tools and techniques available for hazard identification, where they can be applied, as well as discussing the strengths and limitations of the various techniques.
Delegates will learn how to choose the correct technique in different situations and stages in the project lifecycle. Key techniques covered include HAZID, FMEA, HAZOP and Fault Trees and Event Tree analysis.
The course also provides guidance on how to facilitate Hazard Identification meetings. This course assumes no prior knowledge or experience and provides plenty of hands-on practice of identifying hazards and developing risk registers.
Who should attend?
Managers, engineers, operators, HSE advisors and risk management practitioners.
