HAZID (HAZARD IDENTIFICATION) AND (HAZAN) ANALYSIS STUDIES
The acronym HAZID stands for Hazard Identification. The HAZID technique allows the identification of hazards in a less formal way than a HAZOP. It is initially carried out at the Conceptual / FEED stage then followed through in Detailed Design or as a part of the formal Safety Case process in identifying Major Accident Hazards [MAH]
HAZID assists the delivery of HSE compliance, and forms part of the Risk Register required by many licensing authorities. Pre-identified guidewords can be used to identify hazards and make high level comparative assessment of design options. The HAZID report then documents the hazard potential associated with each design option and thereby highlight designs with lower inherent hazard potential.
JCM are experienced in chairing and compiling HAZID studies within the Marine and Oil & Gas industries.
