The HAZOP process was developed over 50 years ago by ICI. This webinar, as part of IChemE's centenary events, celebrates this. Alongside HAZOP, complementary hazard studies were also promoted within ICI. Since then, much focus has been placed on HAZOP as the tool to assess process plant design. This webinar seeks to remind Members that HAZOP is part of a multi-stage process (typically six stages prior to decommissioning), and there is value in completing all the stages.
