Hazard Identification Study (HAZID)
The essential first step of a risk assessment
HAZID studies are systematic critical examinations of facilities to identify any potential hazards and the consequential effects on the facility as a whole. A HAZID will often address both process and non-process hazards.
The method is a design-enabling tool, acting to help organise the health, safety and environmental deliverables in a project. The structured brainstorming technique typically involves designer and client personnel, engineering disciplines, project management, commissioning and operations. The major findings and hazard ratings help to deliver effective management of major hazards and form part of the project risk register required by many licensing authorities.
Bureau Veritas’ experience in delivering well organised HAZID and similar studies will ensure a thorough identification of hazards and safeguards at an early stage in the design of a facility.
