HAZID, study for hazard identification in early stage of the project

Early identification of potential facility risk allow proposing solutions on time.

HAZID (Harzard Identification) study is an useful technique to identify external, internal and occupational facility risk. This methodology can be applied during early stage of the facility design, construction and commissioning.

The study is based in risk identification when most of the design information is available, as process flow diagram, mass and temperature balance drafts, drawings, and other. Geothechnical, social, environmental and infrastructure data are also necessary to apply the methodology. These factors are considered a major source of external risk.

Joint meetings are required for its implementation. Through “Brainstorming” the expert team who has been involved in the project design identify and analyse external, occupational and facility applicable risks. Engineering, instrumentation, maintenance, HSE and operation personnel could form this team,

The main advantages of HAZID study are the proper risk identification and management during the early stage of the facility design. It enables to record and overcome risks trying to avoid, mitigate or reveal them during the design of the project, looking for solutions to compliance with legal and management requirements. In addition, design and construction delays can be avoided without any project budget adjustment.

TEMA professionals have strong knowledge and experience in risk identifying techniques, which ensures accurate results and applicability.
