E.S.M. offers accredited HAZOP study Facilitators that are experienced in leading HAZOPs for complex projects across multiple industries, including mining, mineral processing, power generation, power distribution and offshore petroleum.

E.S.M. engineers are available to review design documentation, plan, facilitate and document (record) HAZOP studies.

E.S.M. workshop facilitators successfully draw upon participant experience to achieve workshop objectives in an energetic and collaborative manner.

HAZOP studies are conducted in accordance AS IEC 61882, Hazard and operability studies (HAZOP studies) – Application guide.

A HAZOP is a structured technique for examining a design or system to identify hazards and potential operability issues, through consideration of deviations from design intent.

A HAZOP aims to:

  • Identify hazards associated with operation and maintenance.
  • Identify potential system operability problems, specifically, the causes of operational disturbances and deviations.
  • Determine appropriate controls and remedial measures.

HAZOP workshops involve a multidisciplinary team, led by a Facilitator, systematically examining all parts of a design or system. Deviations from the design intent are identified and recorded, using a set of guide words.

HAZOPs help to provide an understanding of potential adverse consequences and how these consequences can be avoided through process design / redesign.
