Not sure how they could have anticipated and identified those hazards, ahead of time..

Can I ask, are you familiar with using Nodes and Guidewords as a means to conduct a structured HAZID session.

Or would you approach HAZID without constraints, and leave nodes/guidewords for HAZOP only?

Watching the HBO series: True Detectives (season 2, episode 4), it struck me that the following eight minute scene would be an excellent warmup for a hazard analysis session. It depicts a day that starts well but just doesn't pan out the way our heroes planned.


Pay particular attention to the last minute, beautifully dramatised as only Hollywood can. And ask yourself, do you ever want to be in that situation because you didn't put enough time into figuring out what could go wrong and what you could do about it?
