Workshop On Applied Hazard And Operability Studies

How can you control hazards in the workplace? Hazard and operability studies (HAZOP) is a structured and systematic risk assessment tool that enable you to identify hazards and reduce the associated risk of new or modified systems. It is a detailed examination, by a group of specialists, of components within a system to predict consequences if the components were to operate outside of their design modes. The effectiveness of the hazard identification process relates strongly to the communication and interaction among the team members that come from diverse backgrounds.... Visit website..
