Hazard Identification (HAZID) and Hazard & Operability (HAZOP) Studies

Enquire about HAZOP & HAZID Consultancy
Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP) is a structured and systematic technique for system examination and risk management.
It is based on a theory that assumes risk events are caused by deviations from design or operating intentions. Identification of such deviations is facilitated by using sets of “guide words” as a systematic list of deviation perspectives.
A Hazard Identification (HAZID) Study is the process of identifying hazards in order to plan for, avoid, or mitigate their impacts. The strategy and steps to follow is very similar to HAZOP technique but, different key words are used to carry out the analysis.
Our Process Safety Engineers have the relevant experience to perform those studies, analysing the elements of the process, deviations, possible causes and consequences. They will provide you also with the actions to be completed in order to reduce the risks.

A full report of the study will be issued underlining the following aspects:

  • Identification of the deviations through the guide words.
  • Documentation of consequences and causes.
  • Protection, detection and indicating mechanisms.
  • Actions and recommendations to follow to reduce risks.
  • Follow-up of the actions to be implemented.
  • Re-study of any part of the process if needed.


CMSE Consultancy consultants can act as competent persons to carry out an effective HAZOP analysis. Our consultants can provide an effective Hazard and Operability Analysis by:
  • Process expertise
  • Employing systematic procedures
  • A high quality hazard identification technique
  • Evaluating the extent and nature of the risk
  • Recommending appropriate protection measures


The benefits of a HAZOP are:
  • Safer plant
  • Greater process efficiency
  • Systematic Approach exposes hidden hazards
  • Helps the understanding of how a plant works and identifies operating problems
  • Can lead to fewer start-up problems on major projects
