HazOp: HAZard and OPerability
HazOp (HAZard and OPerability) is the leading method to identify plant’s “top-events” related to the process involved. HazOp is the perfect tool to understand what can go wrong in a plant due to deviations from the design and operational intent.
HazOp is a time-consuming activity that targets the careful review of a process/plant/operation with a structured and systematic approach.

Why Eidos? For our position, for our methods, for our indipendence and for our "4ity" approach! Click Here!Eidos strongly believes in the “classic” HazOp approach, the one defined by ICI and others during the 70s, that, in our experience, is the most challenging but leads to a more exhaustive analysis than the “library-based” and the “knowledge-based” alternatives.
The main implicit drawback in the HazOp method come from the underlying assumption that the normal operating conditions are safe and appropriate codes are used during the design and maintenance phases. To overcome this limit, Eidos usually provides the “Pre-HazOp safety review” that investigates the design and maintenance of the plant/process before committing to HazOp meetings.
Eidos provides the HazOp team (chairman/facilitator and scribe) at your premises using one of the following languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Catalan (so we are able to use the native languages of more than one billion people!).
Eidos has a huge experience in HazOp analysis during the whole life of a plant. Eidos develops HazOp analysis using IEC 61882:2016 as reference and records the sessions using HazOp+ software by Isograph UK.
