Analysis is based on PN-IEC 61882:2005 – Hazard And Operability Studies (HAZOP Studies) – Application Guide standard.
HAZOP analysis is carried out by establishing potential hazardous happenings, gathered in the form of keywords. In order to perform HAZOP analysis, a plant is divided into research nodes (processing units or operational units of particular functions). Every single research node constitutes a further step of analysis.
