Certified PHA HAZOP Leader Training - HAZOP Facilitator Course

Card image cap


Velosi is conducting online training for Certified PHA HAZOP Leader. 

Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) HAZOP Study does not just involve the team meetings themselves, preparation & completion activities are an essential part of the study. HAZard and OPerability (HAZOP) is a group technique for identifying hazards and operability problems. It can be applied to operating process plants and to plants in various stages of design.

A well-known PHA (process hazard analysis) technique for risk assessment and mitigation is the Hazard and Operability Study. It is an important aspect of process safety management and plant and facility HSE risk assessments. It is a highly structured and systematic strategy for identifying all hazards in a process, evaluating the design intent, determining any deviations, and then considering mitigation options for those that could result in negative outcomes such as safety incidents. 

After passing the associated exam at the end of this course, participants will be qualified to serve as a PHA HAZOP leader in conducting HAZOP studies and providing effective support in the PHA phase. 


This course will offer participants a thorough understanding of:

  • PSM System Importance
  • In-depth knowledge in HAZOP and PHA systems.
  • Role of HAZOP and PHA to avoid major accidents in the process industry.
  • PHA application to satisfy PSM criteria for initial PHAs and change analysis management.
  • Act as a HAZOP leader and provide support towards your company’s HAZOP and PHA process.
  • Techniques and mechanics that assist in the completion of a study
  • Use the HAZOP, FTA, and ETA to practice PHA studies.
  • Best practices in leading a HAZOP study and concluding a review.
