HAZOP ,LOPA & SIL Studies. We understand that conducting a HAZOP or a LOPA leading to a SIL study can be daunting and confusing for an engineering team, especially if they are not familiar …

Duration : 2 Days. Time : 09.00 - 17.00


HAZOP is an abbreviated term for HAZard and OPerability study. It is a technique that identifies the potential hazards and operating issues with the design and construction of equipment and plant. The study involves the interaction of a multi-disciplinary team. The identification is carried out using a series of keywords to examine deviations and their subsequent effects on the process as a whole. Once the hazard and operability concerns are identified, appropriate actions are recommended. LOPA stands for ,Layer Of Protection Analysis, which is used in the study of SIL , which in turn stands for Safety Integrated Level.

This 2-day HAZOP,LOPA & SIL course introduces the concept of hazard assessment, process Hazard Analysis techniques, and risk matrix and details of the HAZOP technique. A successful HAZOP is only possible if the study team is effective. Following the HAZOP concepts the use of LOPA to identify SIL’s will be demostrated.

Participants will:

  • Become familiar with the concepts of a HAZOP study
  • Understand the principles and methodology of a HAZOP study
  • Understand the requirements of management, preparation, planning, HAZOP team, documentation, as well the review of HAZOP study
  • Understand the methodology in conducting a process hazard review
  • Preparation and Organization of PHA Studies
  • Selection of Study Nodes / Design intent of node
  • Guidelines for managing the team
  • Recording Study Results / Maintaining Quality Control
  • Management of Results and Recommendations
  • Communication of Results to Management
  • Understand how to identify the SIFs using previous PHA studies (HAZOP’s, What If Analyses, etc.).
  • Assign target SIL’s to the SIFs using LOPA
