Hazard & Operability Studies – HAZOP Studies

Hazard & Operability Studies – HAZOP Studies

A Hazard and Operability study or HAZOP Studies is a formal written process used to systematically identify hazards, assess risks and agree adequate/reasonable control measures during design and engineering projects.  The risk minimisation measures are normally engineering, substitution or design change measures.  We have carried out numerous studies in both new and existing plant, over the last 25 years for clients in the Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Oil and Gas sectors both in Ireland and abroad.

The Chris Mee Group offers our clients the full service in organising, conducting, scribing, chairing and reporting out on HAZOP Studies in full compliance with best practice techniques as recommended by the Institute of Chemical Engineers.  We can also offer parts of the full service such as chair, scribe, attendee, etc

ALARP PRINCIPLES and FULL LIFE CYCLE APPROACH

We always apply the ALARP principle in identifying the appropriate control measures and design changes.  During our HAZOP process we look closely at the full life cycle covering construction phase, validation phase, commissioning phase, operational phase, maintenance activities, foreseeable demolition situations, etc.  See more details below.  Call or email us at info@cmse.ie or fill the query form below.
