Hazard Identification (HAZID) Workshop

[1-Day Awareness Training]

Hazard Identification study is a structured and systematic method widely used in many industries for identify hazards associated to operation and maintenance works. It can be applied at different stages for the whole life cycle of a facility including FEED, Detailed Design, Construction and Decommissioning. It is used to identify different types of internally generated or externally imposed hazards such as chemical, electrical, structural and integrity, ergonomics, operation philosophy, process etc. Early identification of hazards allows the possibility of “designing out” the risk cause at source, or the early implementation of risk reduction / mitigation features, before engineering changes become more expensive as the project progresses.

The objectives of hazard identification study are:

  • Identify potential hazards and reasonably foreseeable accident events associated to operations, maintenance and construction activities;
  • Determine the consequences on personnel safety, environmental pollution, asset damage and company reputation caused by the hazardous events;
  • Identify all control measures and safeguards implemented to mitigate and recover from any accident and evaluate the adequacies of these measures;
  • Propose recommendation for additional control measures or safeguards required to ensure risks are tolerable and As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP).

This training will provide the participants with the basic knowledge on how to apply HAZID methodology in identifying hazards related to operation of process facilities. It will teach the participants on the following:

  • Understanding the application of hazard identification to identify all types of hazards arise from daily operation and maintenance works for a processing facility;
  • Roles of Hazard Identification in Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) in order to meet international or local regulations such as OHSAS 18001 and CIMAH report;
  • Introduction to different types of hazard identification methodology such as What If, Check-List, Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) and HAZID;
  • Applying hazard identification guidewords to identify the threats/causes which could bring harm to personnel safety, environmental pollution and asset damage;
  • Determining the consequences and impacts of incidents/accidents on personnel safety, environmental and asset/financial;
  • Identify safeguards/control measures/mitigation measures implemented to mitigate and recover from any hazardous events; and
  • Perform risk ranking using risk matrix to determine the risk of the hazards.

Who should attend?

  • HSE/Safety Engineer, Process Engineer, Supervisor, Superintendent, Operation, Maintenance Engineer, Project Manager, Engineering Manager, Pipeline Engineer, Instrumentation Engineer, Electrical Engineer, Structural Engineer, etc.
