This is the third edition of the book since it was published first in 2000 and this speaks itself for the popularity 9780323394604-hazopof the book among the safety engineers. The authors have appropriate experience of both from academy as well as have had experience in conducting HAZOP and HAZAN studies in the industries. The book basically serves as a guide and claims that experience has been drawn upon while preparing this guide. Besides providing a checklist for Hazard and Operability Studies (HAZOP), the book illustrates how HAZOP can be carried out for both - continuous operation as well as for batch operation. It is a compact book which tells a reader how HAZOP is done in large process plants, particularly in chemical industries dealing with hazardous materials and processes in identifying the hazards and in planning for safety measures.  HAZOP is a commonly used technique in process industries.

The authors have updated the material presented in this book since its first edition in tune with the new innovations in the design and developments of software for system safety. Human factors are important consideration in HAZOP studies. The book in addition explains how to implement HAZOP techniques in new facilities or apply it to existing facilities. The book identifies the factors involved in making a successful HAZOP study.

Besides being highly useful to safety engineers in providing in depth background information and guidelines for carrying out HAZOP in process industries, the book will be of great academic interests to engineering graduate students and researchers in system safety.
