How to achieve reliable operation of process equipment by design.
How to ensure safe and reliable operation of equipment operating beyond its design life.
An effective plant integrity system delivers benefits for safety, reliability and operational performance, whilst optimising maintenance and inspection costs. Implementing such a system requires proactive management of deterioration mechanisms. It requires a “whole team” approach, as equipment integrity is not solely the responsibility of the maintenance and inspection functions. This course covers the essential elements of an equipment integrity management system including legislative compliance.
