Process Safety Studies
Process Safety studies are a structured and systematic examination of a complex planned or existing process or operation in order to identify and evaluate problems that may represent risks to personnel or equipment.
Alinoz have association with industry acclaimed Chairpersons, who can facilitate the following process safety study workshops
HAZID (Hazard Identification) is a process of identifying hazards, which forms the essential first step of a risk assessment. It a qualitative technique to obtain a list of hazards for subsequent evaluation using other risk assessment techniques. It is used to perform a qualitative evaluation of the significance of the hazards and the measures for reducing the risks from them.
The objective of the HAZID Study is to identify main hazards, to review the effectiveness of selected safety measures and, where required, to expand the safety measures in order to achieve a tolerable residual risk.
HAZOP (Hazard and Operability Study) is a study which is used to simulate abnormal behaviour by considering deviations and disturbances due to causes likely to impact immediate and surrounding plant resulting in consequences. It is an audit tool which helps to decide whether the design has adequate features (i.e., Safeguards) that can prevent occurrence or limit the consequential Effects.
The major objective of HAZOP Study is to identify hazards of the process/operations based on guidewords, which could lead to potential damage on equipment or operations, even personnel fatality and to prevent, control and minimise the risk by providing safeguards.
Our chairpersons have experience of conducting Re-Validation HAZOP for existing facilities.
Our Chairpersons are approved by leading operating companies such as ADNOC, QP, QG, PDO, TOTAL, BP, SHELL etc.
Our in-house scribing engineers, have excellent process safety knowledge and scribing skills.
