HazOp Training Coursefor Team Members

Most people’s introduction to HazOp goes something like this:

“We need you to attend a HazOp meeting.”
“A what?”
“Don’t worry, you’ll pick it up as you go along.”

=Method believes that this is a recipe for disaster.

Every Team Member in a hazard and operability study has an important role to play. If you are going to be in a HazOp, it is important that you understand the HazOp process, how to prepare, and your role in the meetings to make sure your contribution is effective.

This training course is a 1-day practical introduction to HazOp. It is designed to give prospective HazOp team members the knowledge and confidence they need to participate effectively in hazard study meetings.

This learning outcome is achieved through both formal classroom training and by participating in a simulated HazOp meeting.

Certification of Competence

Delegates can attain formal =Method certification of their competence in Hazard Study facilitation, by “Demonstrating Knowledge” whilst facilitating actual Hazard Studies following the completion of the course. How this can be achieved will be discussed with each delegate. One possibility is for a member of the =Method Process Safety team to attend (and perhaps acting as scribe for) the Hazard Study facilitated by the delegate so that they can mentor, coach and evaluate the candidate. The certification is valid for 5 years and can be renewed on submission of further “Demonstration of Knowledge”, demonstration of Continuing Professional Development and experience of Hazard Study Facilitation.
