Course Description

Systematic risk-based inspection can assess the likelihood and potential consequences of the failure of pressure equipment. Risk-based inspection provides an opportunity for companies to prioritize inspection equipment; improve methods of inspection,frequency resources, develop specific plans for inspection equipment and enable the implementation of reliability centered maintenance. This results in an improved safety and less risk of failure, forced shutdowns and reduce operational costs.

Course Objectives

  • Understanding the key aspects of risk based Inspection, its advantages and limitations
  • Understanding of how it is linked to reliability-centered maintenance
  • Understanding how fitness-for-service assessment affects the risk
  • Providing you with the practical and effective methods you need to perform practical likelihood and consequence analysis
  • Learning how to develop optimum inspection intervals for individual equipment based on the assessment of the active degradation 

Who Should Attend?

  • Operations Engineers
  • Maintenance Engineers
  • Engineering managers and supervisors
  • Technical staff with responsibilities for inspection, maintenance, assessment and mitigation of plant equipment degradation
