Training courses and seminars


2 day duration

Hazard Identification Analysis (HAZID) is a tool used early in a project and is a design-enabling tool, acting to help organize the HSE deliverables. The structured brainstorming technique typically involves designer and client personnel engineering disciplines, project management, commissioning and operations.
This 2-days workshop is designed to allow the attendants to be prepared in performing HAZID sessions. This includes understanding the principles behind the method and the fundamentals on HAZID methodology, team composition and preparation for a HAZID session.


Participants will assume the basic know how and skills necessary to successfully complete and reporting a HAZID study.
During the workshop participants will have the opportunity to simulate a mini HAZID (exercise) by prepared basis to facilitating and recording the analysis. By the end of the workshop participants will understand the key elements of HAZID methodology, preparation, organization thus allowing them to fruitfully participate and contribute to future HAZID sessions.

Who should attend?

  • Plant and Operation Managers, Key HSE Functions, Key Supervisors, Project Managers and Project Engineers responsible for new investments HES management.
  • Process engineers, Instruments & Control Engineers and other disciplines engineers involved in new investments HES management.

  18. Hazard identification through the project / facility life cycle, HAZID links to JSA (Job Safety Analysis), THA (Task Hazard Analysis), PTW (Permit to Work System), SIMOPS (Simultaneous Operations), HAZCOM (Hazard Communication), PPE (Personal Protective Equipment); Hearing Conservation, Occupational Hygiene, Safe Work Practices, Lifting & Material Handling (Drop Object Study)
  19. Case study: HAZID Exercise, including:

a.  Study preparation (team composition, collection of documentation);

b.  Definition of check list;

c.  Definition of systems and sub-systems;

d.  Simulated HAZID session.


The exercise will usually be customized on the customer specific field of application (Oil & Gas Upstream, Oil & Gas Downstream, Petrochemical industry etc.) using customer provided documentation (Process description, PFD, layout etc.).

Training sessions will be basically held in English language, with translation of material and speeches in Turkish language.
