Risk assessement methodologies such as hazard and operability (HAZOP) are broadly established across the industry as best practices for hazard identification and evaluation.

However, despite the level of knowledge built to date, and even with extensive research and studies into identifying weaknesses and areas for improvements, techniques such as HAZOP still face ordinary challenges common to any risk assessement process. 

This paper presents lessons and good practices intended to demonstrate how organisations can look to maximise the performance and added value of the HAZOP, ensuring it more effectively informs and improves the decision-making process.
