One of the courses presented by ARINT SA is the Process Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) Study Course.

Why HAZOP studies are critical?

Hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control has become a standard best practice across all industries, besides the legal requirements for compliance. The need for a set of formal hazard identification and elimination procedures resulted in the development of Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) studies.

The purpose of HAZOP is to identify all potential hazards in a process when the process is reviewed in a structured and systematic manner against all foreseeable loss conditions.

This course will provide the Learner with the necessary knowledge and understanding to identify the hazards, assess the risks and to develop preventative controls.


To empower people who have the responsibility to ensure a safe design of a process, by proactively identifying the hazards and associated risks related to operational processes.
