This webinar will draw from well over 400 days of HAZOP and LOPA facilitation that our speaker Louise Whiting has experienced. Louise will share the most common issues she has identified, including:

  • Most common design flaws
  • Most common recommendations

To enable our Asia-Pacific audience to benefit from this very popular HAZOP related webinar, which was previously broadcast on the 13th December 2023, we have decided to re-run the event starting at 08:00 UK time, 15:00 in Hong Kong and 17:00 in Sydney. The presentation from the previous webinar will be re-run and our speaker Louise Whiting will be on hand for a live Q&A following the presentation. SaRS webinars are free and open to everyone in all parts of the world.

This topic will be of keen interest to process safety professionals as HAZOP is one of the main hazard identification methodologies of the industry and therefore the webinar will be relevant to Safety managers, anyone organising a HAZOP, HAZOP facilitators, HAZOP attendees, process engineers, project managers and project engineers.

The presentation will run for 60 minutes and we will have 25 to 30 minutes for the Q&A.
