\u2022Hazard and Operability Studies (HAZOP) is a technique (almost like brainstorming) whereby a group of well informed people aim to identify all the ways in which hazards may appear in a system.
\u2022HAZOP is applicable at all stages of the system lifecycle although it is of limited use until a relatively detailed description of the system has been developed.
\u2022Typically the selected members of the HAZOP team will have had previous experience of such systems, and complement one another (are from different backgrounds) so that the benefits of the team approach are apparent.
