Course Description


Risk Based Inspection is one of several techniques which are recommended by API for the safe and cost effective maintenance and operation of static equipment including pressure vessels, piping and tanks. This comprehensive 5-day programme has been designed to benefit both qualified new professionals as well as experienced professionals who may be involved in the rollout of a new Risk Based Inspection system or auditing an existing system.
It covers all the steps required in developing a successful Risk Based Inspection   programme from initial recognition of a need, through management approval and system development until a well managed Risk Based Inspection system is in place and operational.

Course Objective


·         To provide a step-by-step guide to developing a Risk Based Inspection system starting with foundations and building up to best practice that will deliver maximum business benefits.  

·         To provide opportunities to discuss the implementation and integration within the production environment. 

·         Provide an opportunity to learn these concepts through practical exercises


Who Should attend?


It is recommended that all Maintenance, Reliability, Engineering and technical support staff  especially including leadership and management attend this workshop.
If you and your company are interested in maintaining a safe, cost effective organisation, this will be a very valuable course
