Hazop Course

HAZOP  (short for Hazard and Operability Study) is a well known hazard analysis tool used for process safety management and HSE risk assessment of plants and facilities. It is a highly structured and systematic method to identify all hazards in a process, evaluate the design intention, work out possible deviations & then think of mitigating those which could cause bad consequences. This method is an essential part of the Process Safety Management (PSM) in the process industries.

However, there are very few training courses out there that teach the HAZOP study technique thoroughly well, in a structured manner. Ditto for books-many of them are outdated and not as relevant as they once were. Hence Abhisam Software created this e-learning course, so that you need not refer to boring, outdated and irrelevant books to learn HAZOP. What you need is a practical, "why-we-do-it and how-to-do-it" training course and this is it!

Easy learning on HAZOP (Hazard and Operability Study) with Certificate of Competency

This is a Real E-learning program, with INTERACTIVE ANIMATIONS & SIMULATIONS that recreate plant situations, videos that explain concepts, real life examples and exercises, a full Case Study of a real process HAZOP, concepts such as CHAZOP, real life HAZOP Worksheets and much more. It is NOT just a video of a boring Professor speaking OR a simple powerpoint presentation. It is a full fledged computer program that will help you easily grasp concepts of HAZOP quickly and in an interesting manner. After you complete this course, you can easily become a HAZOP Facilitator.

This e-learning course covers HAZOP in detail, that will make you a pro in hazard and risk analysis, HSE risk assessment and related areas of process safety management. It is NOT merely somebody's outdated boring power point slide presentation or a text book in electronic format. It is a full fledged e-learning course with interactive animations & simulations, videos, worked examples, HAZOP worksheet templates and much more!

Forget attending classroom training with boring Powerpoint Slides, this e-learning course will have plenty of graphics and interactive animations that make learning so much more easier and fun!

Besides you can also get a Certificate of Competency in HAZOP if you take our online test after completing this course. There is no additional charge for this!

Animations & Simulations

This e-learning software makes extensive use of Animations & Simulations to help you learn & understand the HAZOP Examples very easily. See below for a  SMALL sample of the kind of content that is inside the course. Note that these are low resolution screencaptures. The actual animations in the course look much better!


Situational Videos

HAZOP is not only about technical aspects, but also about Management. Videos inside this XPRTU software enable you to learn about it. See such a sample video below. Note that these are low resolution screencaptures.

The actual software has the complete video and looks better too!

Case Study

After studying many real life examples, the final module will have a Case Study. This will be a full fledged mock HAZOP of a Process Unit and includes realistic processes, P & IDs and  filled-in worksheets. After this is over, there is also an Audit of the HAZOP so conducted, to make it more realistic. Before and After P & IDs are included.

P & ID for hazop case study

The above are all part of the Online and Professional Download versions of the software. In addition, the Enterprise Version will also have Case Studies of other commonly used Process Units such as Distillation Columns, Overground Storage Tanks and so on. This gives an easy way to carry out your own HAZOP Studies in your own plant or facility. Below is an example of a P & ID which is part of the Distillation Column Case Study in the Enterprise version.
