Hazards of a process, such as inherent reactivity, flammability, and toxicity of raw materials, intermediates, products, catalysts, are identified early in process development.

The risk posed by contemplated processing steps during process development must be determined from a knowledge of inherent hazards and controls that could be applied.

Hazard identification and risk analysis (HIRA) begins at the conception of a process and continues through to decommissioning of a processing plant.

The student will learn about the appropriateness of HIRA methods through the life cycle of a process and the fundamentals of the Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) Study Method which is a core HIRA method.
