Course Description

The Melios HAZOP training program comprises a discrete set of integrated modules that have been specifically tailored to provide effective training, understanding and application of a HAZOP study within the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry.

The training covers all the essential aspects of a HAZOP study and uses a series of practical workshops and role-play scenarios to develop delegates either as team leaders or members.
It is important that participants attending as HAZOP team leaders have some experience of HAZOP while participants attending as team members may have little or no HAZOP experience.

Target Audience

• Experienced HAZOP team members who are moving on to team leadership
• Those who need to refresh and update their HAZOP experience
• Engineers and other technical personnel who are new to HAZOP study
• Those with safety and project management responsibilities

Course Duration

 The training will be delivered over a period of 5 working days from Monday to Friday. This is necessary to ensure all topics and associated exercises are adequately covered at the appropriate level. Delegates are therefore required to attend the entire duration of the program so as to gain full appreciation of the topics. It will also equip participants such that they are able to confidently apply the knowledge and make value-adding contribution or decisions.

Aim and Objective

N

A thorough understanding of the principles and methodology of a HAZOP study and its practical application.

N

Understanding of the factors that control the efficient management of a HAZOP study and the effective use of resources i.e. team meeting times.

N

Awareness of key features that determine the effectiveness of a HAZOP study in exposing relevant hazard and operability problems.

N

Recognition of the role of a HAZOP study as a useful hazard identification technique and its relationship with other techniques.

N

Understanding the timing and appropriate application of a HAZOP study during an asset lifecycle phase i.e. design, operation, modification etc.

N

Gaining confidence and improvement as HAZOP team leaders and/ or members through group work role play exercises.

N

Understanding the role and importance of pre-planning studies prior to a HAZOP study.

N

Understanding the role and importance of recording in HAZOP studies using appropriate computer-based recording tools.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion, delegates will acquire in-depth knowledge of :

N

Understand the background to the development and application of the HAZOP study technique;

N

Gain sound understanding of the different role function of team leaders and members within a HAZOP team;

N

Gain good leadership techniques and pitfalls to avoid when leading a HAZOP study;

N

Alan Borrowman

Trainer

Alan Borrowman (C.Eng. FIChemE) – 50 years experience in chemical and process safety engineering, including 20 years in design and project engineering with fine chemical and pharmaceutical companies, 10 years in offshore oil & gas design projects and 20 years as a process safety consultant leading HAZOPs, incident investigations and technical due diligence.

More Info

His early career included 20 years in design and project engineering with various fine chemical and pharmaceutical companies, where he designed chemical processes, specified plant equipment and selected materials for highly corrosive and toxic processes, often where textbook data was not available. This was followed by 10 years in offshore oil and gas design projects, where he was responsible for setting up a Technical Safety group to change design safety practices in the aftermath of the 1988 Piper Alpha disaster. In recent years, Alan has been called upon to conduct various offshore and onshore incident investigations. His career has given him experience of project engineering, project management, process design and operations, safety engineering and risk management. He is a Fellow of the UK Institution of Chemical Engineers; he served on the Scottish Branch committee, and was elected chairman for a two-year term in 1991. He has also been chairman of the Safety and Reliability Society – North of Scotland Branch. He has delivered training courses in Process Hazard Analysis (HAZOP and HAZID), Process Safety Management, Hazard Awareness, Risk Assessment, Root Cause Analysis, Failure Modes & Effect Analysis and has lectured on Reliability Analysis to the M.Sc. course in Process Safety and Loss Prevention at Sheffield University. In addition to delivering training courses, he currently facilitates HAZOP / HAZID / LOPA studies and undertakes expert witness roles advising lawyers engaged in contractual disputes, usually involving the design or construction of chemical plants or oil & gas production facilities, or criminal prosecutions.
