HAZOP e-learning software from Abhisam

The HAZOP e-learning program from Abhisam is the easiest way to learn all about HAZOP (Hazard and Operability Study). The program consists of text, animations and simulations, videos, real life examples from industry, a case study and a self-assessment test that help you learn all about HAZOP, from the comfort of your home or office. The program also includes free Certification for the learner, subject to passing an online exam. The program is available in several versions including download and online options for individuals. Organizations have options of the Enterprise (Cloud) version and a SCORM compatible version that can work with any Learning Management System (LMS) that can run SCORM content.


The HAZOP technique is widely used as a Risk Assessment tool in a variety of industries that include Oil & Gas, Chemical, Petrochemical, Food and Beverage, Mining & Metals, Pharmaceutical manufacturing, Power Generation, Water & wastewater, Pulp and Paper and many other industries. However, there are hardly any good resources to learn about HAZOP. Either one has to read several books (some of which are obsolete), or hunt for online information that is unauthenticated, or enrol in classroom courses that cost a lot of money. Furthermore they may not be available at a time and place of your convenience.

The best way to learn HAZOP today is to opt for the Abhisam HAZOP e-learning program that frees you from geographical constraints, time and budget constraints. Learn at your own pace, in the comfort of your home or office, or any other place.

Learning from the Abhisam HAZOP e-learning course is an enjoyable experience, due to the extensive use of animations and videos to explain key concepts, the use of real-life examples from industry, including typical HAZOP formats and a very easy to absorb design. It is NOT a boring Power Point presentation, nor is it just a video of a lecture. It is a full-fledged e-learning software program that can either be downloaded to your computer, or accessed online, or run in your organizational Learning Management System.
