Safety of critical elements and how to achieve asset integrity management at optimum levels of performance are significant challenges across many organisations. Safety barrier systems are used to protect humans and assets from hazards. These barrier systems may be classified as either active or passive barrier systems, and as physical, technical or human/operational barrier systems. Introduction to maintenance and risk and root cause analysis are part of these barrier systems to protect against major hazardous events and failure of equipment. Decisions as an outcome of such analysis help decision makers to prevent, control, mitigate and facilitate maintenance.
EuroMaTech maintenance engineering training course will employ advanced analytical tools for modelling preventative and corrective safety barriers for mitigation and response. The methodology involves selection and prioritisation of maintenance policies, risk assessment, major hazard scenario development, risk analysis and identification, establishing a performance standard, developing maintenance, inspection and testing plans, implementing assurance activities and, finally, issuing a key performance indicator.
