HAZOP Consulting (Hazard and Operability Studies) is a systemic way to identify possible hazards in a work process.
Hazop Consulting examine complex planned and existing processes or operations to identify and evaluate problems that may represent risks to personnel or equipment. This is a highly complex but extremely important process for all organisations busy re-establishing their current and potential risks embedded in new developments or changes in existing production processes.
When HAZOP consulting is performed during the planning process of a new development, it will ensure that all potential risks are identified. The study will outline the potential problems, their consequences, their causes and the protection requirements needed. Going forward changes can then be made to prevent these problems or to alleviate their effects.
