A Hazard Identification Study or HAZID is a tool for hazard analysis, used early in a project as soon as process flow diagrams, draft heat and mass balances, and plot layouts are available. Existing site infrastructure, weather, and geotechnical data are also required, these being a source of external hazards.
The method is a design-enabling tool, acting to help organise the HSE deliverables in a project. The structured brainstorming technique typically involves designer and client personnel engineering disciplines, project management, commissioning and operations.
The main major findings and hazard ratings help to deliver HSE compliance, and form part of the project Risk Register required by many licensing authorities.
