First HAZOP workshop

Sabina Griffith

An ITER Organization-Domestic Agency workshop on HAZard and OPerability analysis (HAZOP) took place last week. Together with more that 15 representatives from all seven Domestic Agencies, the ITER tritium group and a consultant from the United States went through a first general presentation of the analysis that will be required for all ITER systems wetted by tritium. The HAZOP studies will help to define a safe system design and acceptance criteria for ITER equipment. The method will thus be used to help design all tritium loops within ITER. The two-day training was an initiative of US ITER together with the ITER tritium group. As a conclusion, the usefulness of this approach was recognized and the implementation plan discussed.
