The identification of process hazards is often captured with techniques such as HAZOP. The main objective of these studies is to identify the process hazards. To make a decision on whether process designs or operations are acceptable, we often need to subject them to a risk analysis. The importance of assessing risk has been escalated under the HSWA 2015 and associated regulations in NZ.

There are a number of risk assessment techniques that can be performed, but not all are suitable to each situation. There are qualitative techniques such as risk matrices, semi-quantitative techniques such as LOPA and fully quantitative techniques that include consequence and likelihood modelling.

The objectives of this Risk Assessment course are to develop the skills necessary to select and perform the appropriate risk assessment technique and ensure the process can be effectively integrated into a company’s process safety management processes.
