A Hazard Identification Study or HAZID is the process of identifying hazards in order to plan for, avoid, or mitigate their impacts. Hazard identification is an important step in risk assessment and risk management. The tool can be used to determine the adverse health effects of exposure to a chemical stressor[1] and to plan for building repair costs or retrofitting in areas prone to natural disaster.[2]
