Case study – What we have learned from conducting HAZID studies

The Project

Over the course of this year, we have undertaken multiple Hazard Identification (HAZID) studies for Operators in the UK North Sea to help them identify and manage key controls to ensure their high-risk activities are ALARP. The HAZID studies have covered all types of equipment and activities from ballast systems to cranes and everything in between.

The Challenge

With our extensive track record of leading and facilitating safety studies, we consider ourselves to be experts in the field. However, we rely on the expertise of those involved in the technical aspects of the operation to ensure that we have extensive details on the system under review.

The Solution

We overcome any knowledge-gaps by ensuring we have the right skill set in the room, from the various discipline engineers to operational staff who bring know how and insights that elevate a HAZID that is being facilitated correctly. The inevitable time and resource pressures faced by our clients can have an impact on the individuals attending but we seek to work around this by gathering as much information as possible prior to starting the study.

The Result

With over a 100 safety studies under our belt and a host of repeat customers, we are sure our approach to conducting HAZIDs leaves no stone unturned when it comes to identifying hazards and ensuring our clients have the right controls in place.
