SAFOP (eHAZOP) - CHALLIS INTERNATIONAL IS THE GLOBAL LEADER IN SAFOP STUDIES - 400 STUDIES, 30 YEARS, 30 COUNTRIES
Challis International is the leading global provider of SAFOP (or eHAZOP) studies.
Our leadership position is reflected in our track record of completing 400 studies in 30 countries over 30 years.
Our Managing Director, Dr David Challis, has personally conducted over 200 SAFOP studies.
Our offerings and approach are differentiated by :
2.0 SAFOP PROCESSES
Many organisations use the standard node based SYSOP, SAFAN and OPTAN processes only which can be grossly inadequate for many complex projects. To assure safety, security and operability, SAFOP may require additional processes including, but not limited to :
The SAFOP process requires customisation to reflect not only the above, the specific risks and issues implicit in the design (eg Supply Authority Interfaces, EMC, IEC Ex, Harmonics etc) and the stage of development of the design, but most importantly, the end clients needs, concerns and expectations. Our SAFOP processes are now 8th generation and vary significantly from those used by other suppliers in the marketplace that reflect the standard SAFOP technology developed circa 1987.
3.0 SAFOP SYSTEMS AND DATA
We have found no commercially available software tool or product that meets the specific requirements for a SAFOP study and that can be readily customised to meet the requirements of each client and study. Consequently, in 1996 we developed a proprietary system for planning, executing, reviewing and managing SAFOP or eHAZOP studies. Our proprietary SAFOP system provides clients with the following major benefits
4.0 SAFOP PEOPLE
Our SAFOP Chairpersons are not process facilitators. Each has an average of 30 years experience in leading complex technical SAFOP studies (EHV, Complex Dynamic Study Reports, Cogeneration) and complex SAFOP teams (eg JV teams, consortia teams) in culturally diverse and sensitive environments. Our highly experienced persons therefore bring technical SAFOP content value added, SAFOP process value added and SAFOP cultural diversity value added - making sure the process and group dynamic work for all participants, to the table. We ensure that our Chairpersons clearly contract their role with the contractor, the client and the study team before the commencement of the study workshop.
We also have a large pool of experienced and trained study secretaries to support study chairpersons if required for the study or by the client.
