Abhisam HAZOP Leader Course

Over the past few years, HAZOP (Hazard and Operability Study) has become the premier Hazard and Risk Assessment technique, to ensure process safety in industry.

What does HAZOP mean?

The Hazard and Operability Study is one of the most popular risk assessment techniques, that is used in many process industries, not only as a hazard identification & mitigation tool, but to also improve operability of the process.

Abhisam was one of the first organizations to introduce HAZOP as an online,  e-learning, software based training course about nine years ago, as an alternative to attending traditional classroom style training workshops.

Since then, thousands of  professionals, all over the world, have undergone this course and become certified as HAZOP Professionals, either via taking the e-learning course, or by attending in person, classroom style training workshops.

Even today, after so many years, this is the first course of choice, for any safety or technical professional, who wishes to get certified as a HAZOP Professional.

The course structure, level of detail, animations, simulations and videos, exercises and case studies make this a unique experience that has no peers anywhere.

What is the HAZOP Leader course all about?

Hazard and Operability Studies are a part of process safety management. They are done as a team effort, in a group led by an experienced professional who is designated the HAZOP Leader (also referred to sometimes as a HAZOP Chairman). HAZOP Studies, requires not only a high degree of technical skills in evaluating process hazards, but also great management skills, so that the analysis gets carried out as per the planned schedule.

This training course includes a comprehensive review of the HAZOP technique and  detailed case studies of plants, for which you will conduct a HAZOP review.

Is it similar to the HAZOP Professional course?

No, being a leader has different skillset requirement, than being a participant. This Abhisam course covers all the skills that are needed to successfully lead such a kind of a project. Most courses on the market do not cover leadership, conflict management, team building and other required attributes at all. Unlike them the Abhisam course covers both technical and managerial skills needed to complete a successful safety study project.

What will I learn?

As a technical professional who has mastered the HAZOP technique, you now have an opportunity to play a leadership role in conducting PHA / HAZOP Studies by qualifying as a HAZOP Leader. In addition to being technically sound in engineering, safety and process concepts, you also need to have leadership skills. This means being able to manage a team of highly technically competent professionals to conduct the Hazard and Risk Assessment Study, taking the opinion of many experts on the team who follow you and being able to lead them to a logical conclusion, being able to manage conflicts and egos and much more!

In addition to a comprehensive review of the HAZOP process, we will also focus on other areas related to management of the entire process.

By participating in the Abhisam HAZOP Leader e learning program, not only will you be able to conduct these sessions smoothly, you will be able to deliver value to the owner/operator of the facility, who may be investing billions in the new facility and depending on your team to make the right decisions.
