An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment Program
… Replace with Company Name, in consultation with its employees and subcontractors,  through JSA’s will identify all reasonably foreseeable hazards at the jobsite that may cause a major accident; and the kinds of major accidents that may occur at the jobsite, the likelihood of a major accident occurring and the likely consequences of a major accident. 
The importance of getting the hazard identification right
Major accidents by their nature are rare events, which may be beyond the experience of many employers. These accidents tend to be low frequency, high consequence events, however, the circumstances or conditions that could lead to a major accident may already be present, and the risks of such incidents should be proactively identified and managed. Therefore, the hazard identification process should be used for routine and non-routine activities as well as new processes, changes in operation, products or services as applicable. 
Features of HAZID
Replace with Company Name will expect:
a clear method statement or description of the HAZID process, defining when it was conducted, how it was planned and prepared, who was involved and what tools and resources were employed;
that the HAZID process was based on a comprehensive and accurate description of the facility, including all necessary diagrams, process information, existing conditions and modifications; and
that the overall HAZID process did not rely solely on data that was historical or reactive and that employers ensured that predictive methods were also used.
The HAZID process must identify hazards that could cause a potential major accident for the full range of operational modes, including normal operations, start-up, shutdown, and also potential upset, emergency or abnormal conditions. Employers should also reassess their HAZID whenever a significant change in operations has occurred or a new substance has been introduced.
Past, present and future hazards
To identify all hazards, the HAZID will need to consider past, present and future conditions, hazards and potential incidents. Past incidents, at the jobsite or similar facilities, provide an indication of what has gone wrong in the past and what could go wrong in the future.
A wide range of hazards and potential incidents will be present in the facility. New hazards and incidents could be created in the future as a result of planned or unplanned changes. The management of change process described in the SMS should identify new conditions during the planning of modifications or new activities. This should then trigger further HAZID studies and risk assessments, with the identification of control measures as appropriate.
Hazard and Operability Study (HAZOP) is a highly structured and detailed technique, developed primarily for application to chemical process systems. A HAZOP can generate a comprehensive understanding of the possible ‘deviations from design intent’ that may occur. However, HAZOP is less suitable for identification of hazards not related to process operations, such as mechanical integrity failures, procedural errors, or external events. HAZOP also tends to identify hazards specific to the section being assessed, while hazards related to the interactions between different sections may not be identified. Therefore, HAZOP may need to be combined with other hazard identification methods, or a modified form of HAZOP used, to overcome these limitations.....
