Tools, techniques, aplications and limitations.

This course provides an understanding and awareness of the tools and techniques available for hazard identification, where they can be applied and what limitations may exist.

Hazard identification is the first step of the risk assessment process and a hazard missed is a hazard uncontrolled.

Delegates will get equipped to be able to choose the correct technique in different situations and stages in the project lifecycle. Key techniques covered include FMEA, HAZOP and Fault Trees and Event Tree analysis.  

As an engineer you must take responsibility for controlling the hazards and risks throughout engineering processes in order to maintain safe operating procedures and minimise loss.

You will be introduced to the concept of HAZID, including the HAZID team and process, and a range of other hazard identification techniques.

The course also provides guidance on how to facilitate Hazard Identification meetings.
