The What If analysis method is a well known risk assessment technique used in many industries and business sectors. In the process industry, the What-If technique can be used very well to carry out hazard and risk assessment of any process plant or facility, quickly and easily. This is considered one of the quicker methods to carry out a PHA (Process Hazard Analysis)
Is this an alternative to HAZOP?
What-If is a good alternative to using the Hazard and Operability Study method (HAZOP), especially when there are constraints on time and not all information about the process is available. It can be quickly used to assess the current risk level of the plant or facility. If you would like to know about other Process Safety related courses, then you can also take a look at our HAZOP Training Course and the LOPA Training Course.
