Practical HAZOPS for Engineers and Technicians This manual covers the techniques of hazard and operability studies that are widely used in industry for the identification of potential hazards in process plant operations. In recent years HAZOP methods have been extended to searching for hazards in operational procedures and in many other fields including electronic controls and emergency planning procedures.
HAZOP can be adapted to a wide range of applications to seek out operational failure modes and possible harm to persons, environment or assets. This manual details the relationship (and differences) between HAZOP and other risk management techniques such as HAZID, hazard analysis, FMEA and fault tree analysis. It explains the concepts of the Safety Integrity Levels (SIL) of instrumented systems and how these are specified in association with Hazard studies and risk assessments.
In process plant design it includes the identification and effect of failures in process control systems and SCADA systems. An example of CHAZOP (Control System HAZOP) is discussed that considers hazards arising from failures in control systems. Hazard studies interact closely with process design and safety engineering solutions in the critical stages of engineering projects. Understanding these interactions assists engineers and technicians to plan their work efficiently and to contribute effectively to the reduction of risks in the workplace.
This manual shows how information flow from HAZOP supports safety management throughout the life cycle of the plant. The HAZOP techniques and safety system practices described are based on the latest international practices including the guidelines in IEC 61822 for HAZOP studies.
