HAZID

HAZID is a qualitative hazard identification method used for identifying risks within new or existing facilities. It should be implemented during the conceptual phase of a project to detect any factors or defects that pose danger; when done correctly, these factors are quickly identified and can subsequently be removed or modified before the project gets underway.

In order to guide experts through areas of interest, Pryxida TECH offers facilitators who carry out HAZID assessments using a combination of existing checklists and previous workshop experience. The objective: for experts to obtain the necessary feedback to reduce risks associated with a project.
