About The Course

Assuring health, safety, reputation, environment, reliability, availability and integrity in power businesses is often difficult to consistently and sustainably achieve. Transmission, distribution and generation businesses are asset intensive and the implications of asset failures can have enormous implications.


Asset performance is, to a large extent, determined by the rigour of the asset design, engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning processes. Unfortunately, however, asset performance is frequently compromised through hazards that are not identified or adequately evaluated in new projects or modifications/enhancements to existing operating facilities.


HAZID and HAZOP (eHAZOP) are powerful processes to rigorously review a design, systematically identify and evaluate hazards and risks and where appropriate, identify the mitigations required.


This 3 day highly interactive webinar describes world class HAZID and HAZOP processes to help manage risks to be as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP). Most suitable for participants who are new to PHA concepts or as a refresher and also for those aspired to help facilitate such studies in their career.

Learning Outcomes

The training provides participants with:


  • An understanding of the scope of risk and safety studies available to the Power industry professional.
  • A detailed understanding of the HAZOP/eHAZOP and HAZID processes and conditions for success
  • Clarity on the roles and responsibilities of the team leader and members
  • The theoretical and practical knowledge and skills to prepare and facilitate HAZOP/eHAZOP and HAZID studies
  • The required knowledge for reporting the findings of these studies and the follow-up actions for progress accountability

Who Should Attend

The course is designed for Project Engineers, Project Designers, Managers and Owners of Power facilities, key Operations, Production, Maintenance, HSE, Project and Safety personnel. It is especially beneficial for participants who are new to these concepts or refreshers seeking to sharpen their skills and knowledge in PHA.
