Why is it important to conduct a HAZOP study?

The purpose of the HAZOP is to investigate how the system or plant deviate from the design intent and create risk for personnel and equipment and operability problems. HAZOP studies have been used with great success within chemical and the petroleum industry to obtain safer, more efficient and more reliable plants.

How is HAZOP done?

A HAZOP is a qualitative technique based on guide-words and is carried out by a multi-disciplinary team (HAZOP team) during a set of meetings. ▶ Identify all deviations from the way a system is intended to function: their causes, and all the hazards and operability problems associated with these deviations.

What is HAZOP example?

HAZOP Example Reverse Osmosis (RO) water is added to the batch mixer via a centrifugal pump. Additives are mixed with the RO water. A 33% solution of HCl is added to the mixture of RO water and additives, resulting in a 10% concentration of HCl.

When should a HAZOP be done?

The HAZOP study should preferably be carried out as early in the design phase as possible – to have influence on the design. On the other hand; to carry out a HAZOP we need a rather complete design. As a compromise, the HAZOP is usually carried out as a final check when the detailed design has been completed.

How long does a HAZOP take?

How long do HAZOP reviews take? Depending on the number of P&IDs and the scope defined in the HAZOP procedure, reviews could take from one day to several weeks or months. HazOptima can help you to define your planning at an early stage in the project.

What are the types of HAZOP?

The four types of HAZOP studies that are conducted are: process HAZOP, procedure HAZOP, human HAZOP and software HAZOP.

  • Process HAZOP: Assesses plants and process systems.
  • Procedure HAZOP: Reviews procedures and operational sequences.
  • Human HAZOP: Focuses on human errors opposed to technical failures.
