This 3-day course is designed to deliver expert instruction on how to successfully plan and execute Process Hazards Analysis (PHA) studies efficiently and effectively. This includes understanding the principles behind each of the major PHA methods (HAZOP, What-if?, Checklist, FMEA), learning how to deal with challenging personalities within the PHA team and how to avoid common pitfalls and traps so your PHA studies run smoothly.
We also offer a 1-Day PHA/HAZOP Overview. This one day overview teaches the theory behind conducting Process Hazard Analysis/Hazard Operability Studies. The course benefits anyone who will be involved in PHA's as a participant but not as a leader. To develop the skills necessary to be a leader, registrants should attend the full 3-Day PHA/HAZOP Workshop. The one day overview is the FIRST day of the regular PHA/HAZOP Overview.

WORKSHOP EXERCISE EXAMPLE
In addition to expert instruction from an experienced, professional PHA facilitator, in the afternoon of Day 2 and for Day 3, you will form a study team with other participants and take turns leading the team through “practice” HAZOP and What-if sessions. The instructor will coach you and provide feedback on your performance. Students will have the opportunity to prepare the drawings, populate the software and facilitate the studies using drawings such as the one below. By the end of the exercises students will be able to facilitate their own HAZOP and What if sessions.
