Abstract A study was carried out to investigate the possibility of applying a "HAZOP" type approach to the assessment of evacuation, escape and rescue (EER) from offshore installations. A model of the EER process was defined based on: alarm, access, muster, egress, evacuation, escape and rescue. For each stage, potential hazards due to design, physical conditions, command and control errors, and human failures were identified. A trial HAZOP was carried out for the first three stages. Overall, it is considered that identification of hazards during the EER process can be significantly improved by applying a HAZOP type technique.
