Since its inception over 20 years ago, LOPA (Layer of Protection Analysis) has become the tool of choice for identifying and estimating Process Safety gaps in industry where hazards are present and need to be contained.

Our 2 day course, which has been delivered both in-house and in public, will be present the key tenets of the LOPA technique, demonstrating how to make your facility appropriately safe and profitable.

Effective HAZOP

More than 40 years after its inception, it is major weapon in the battle to minimise incidents at oil and gas facilities worldwide. Effective HAZOP helps participants understand and apply the key principles of HAZOP (Hazard and Operability Review) to create optimally safe and operable process facilities.

HAZOP Masterclass

For those already experienced in the technique and who want to advance to the next level, HAZOP Masterclass is a two day course which will use a combination of presentation, videos, graphics and workshops to lead the participants through the advanced attributes of the technique:

  • Benefit from the Charing wisdom garnered from over 80 HAZOPs / PHAs
  • understand how to plan, implement, record and review a HAZOP study
  • be aware of the different roles within a HAZOP team and understand the key characteristics required by a HAZOP chair and the importance of balancing the HAZOP team dynamic
  • gain an appreciation of the softer skills required to ensure a successful HAZOP
  • develop an instinct for the key HAZOP drivers and hidden traps by participating in a simulated chairing exercise


Process Safety Management(PSM) is fundamentally important in oil, gas and petrochemical operations. There have been very many high profile incidents, resulting in fatalities and significant financial losses, which have resulted directly from poor Process Safety Management practices. 

This course will familiarize key staff with the various aspects of process safety. Delegates will understand the differences between process and personal safety. The delegates will learn the importance of process and personal safety. The delegates will learn the importance of process safety and the need for effective reporting and follow-up of process safety incidents and near misses. 


All our courses are presented in a highly interactive format. The trainer is fully experienced in the subject matter and will keep delegates engaged via real life examples and interactive discussions. 

Case studies, discussions and syndicate sessions will ensure that the course content is both engaging and interesting. Supporting materials include a comprehensive manual and handouts. Video material will be used to support the presented materials.
