Hazop Study Risk Matrix
A Risk Matrix
  • Potential problems recorded during a meeting may be categorised by expected Frequency of occurrence, Severity of the consequences and the appropriate Hazard Category (e.g. Personnel injury, Equipment damage, etc.).  Descriptions associated with all of these codes are fully editable.  The software can also calculate a Risk factor.  The matrix employed may be automatically configured using two standard formulae, or alternatively can be customised according to your own method of calculating risk.  The axis upon which the Frequency and Severity classification codes are displayed can also be selected.  Risk factors can optionally be colour-coded for easy visual identification when scanning through the data file.
