Lessons from Corrosion Incidents: Providing Risk Visibility Through an Effective Safety Program
Integrity Management and preventing loss of containment is one of the major process safety challenges to hazardous industries during these tough times. Pressure is mounting for plant operators to simultaneously improve productivity, manage costs and reduce risk – in short, achieve Operational Excellence. The temptation is ever-present to delay maintenance work until it reaches a critical point.
Unfortunately in the hydrocarbon industry, inadequately addressed corrosion issues can lead to a loss of containment with the potential for disaster to quickly following in its wake. This can result in financial loss and human suffering.
Industry expert, Andy Bartlett, shares lessons from corrosion incidents for improving process safety management.
