This training course covers HAZOP study in full with IEC61511 (and the master standard IEC61508) incorporated. Anyone wishing to use the HAZOP study in the lifecycle of safety instrumented systems (as they should) then this course shows how to incorporate the standard seamlessly and easily and how the leader can quietly ensure that everything necessary is covered.

HAZOP study is an established method for examining a process plant in detail. The standard for the central HAZOP study is IEC 61882 which is a European Norm and published as EN 61882 throughout the EU. It gives guidance on application of the technique and on the HAZOP study procedure, including definition, preparation, examination sessions and resulting documentation and follow-up.

HAZOP study is included in the lifecycle in IEC61511 Part 1. If a safety instrumented system is to be, and claim to be, compliant with IEC61511 then this course has a full module describing what should be covered in the HAZOP study for SIL rated trips as safeguards.


Day 1:

The introduction starts with the status of HAZOP status in legal requirements and how HAZOP studies can be used to save money. The importance of the Seveso directive is covered as well as the incidents that led to HAZOP studies being important. The course also discusses what the purpose of reviewing a HAZOP study is. The first day then goes through the HAZOP system itself and shows that the standard suggests the size of HAZOP study team.

Day 2:

The course examines what IEC61511 covers, the context within regulations and how it is clearly linked with HAZOP studies. Aspects that are appropriate for a risk matrix used in a HAZOP study that links with IEC61511 are discussed. An example HAZOP study is undertaken in which everyone participates. Special cases are discussed as well as what the final report should cover.

This course is provided by the Author of the I.Chem.E’s book “Using Risk Graphs for Safety Integrity Level Assessment”, a book that is now named and included in IEC61511 2nd edition Part 3.

Please note - This training course includes exams and the results of the exam are shown on the candidate’s certificate.
