The HAZOP (hazard and operability) study is the method for conducting analysis of process plant facilities to identify and
evaluate safety hazards or operability problems, which might compromise the foreseen productivity of the plant or lead to
accidents and casualties.
Identify the potential causes of process upsets scenarios, evaluate the safeguards and/or propose mitigation measures.
Verify if the actual design, operating procedures and maintenance routines and ensure that the risks of mistaken operation
or accidents for each identified operating scenario are reduced to minimum.
Make recommendations or require additional study and discussions for each identified deviation, potential risk and lack of
