Module 6 - Asset Management is part of the full Process Safety Management eLearning package, which provides an integrated overview of the 20 elements in 15 modular presentations sessions which are each 45 minutes in length.

This module can be undertaken as an individual module or altogether as a package on the EI’s learning management system, with recorded presentations and exercises taught by a leading expert in process safety and a former deputy director of the UK Health & Safety Executive. Learning Objectives:

• To explain the link between plant, equipment and control systems failure modes and a risk- based asset management programme
• To understand the meaning of safety critical equipment
• To be able to distinguish between operational maintenance and safety related maintenance

Key Points to cover:

• Purpose: To maintain the primary containment so that safety margins are maintained and the risk of loss of containment is reduced as far as is reasonably practical. To maintain the function of control and instrumented systems.

• Learning Points:
o Assets identified registered and tagged
o Asset functions specified, including process safety criticality
o Inspection and maintenance programmes based on predicted failure modes of plant, equipment and safety systems
o Inspection & maintenance intervals set to detect degradation rates and locations in primary containment
o Inspection & maintenance intervals set according to degradation rates for control systems – especially primary sensors
o Know failure modes and degradation mechanisms / rates recorded and reviewed on the basis of findings from asset management programmes
o Critical spares identified, stokes kept and replenished on the basis of safety critical function vs operational function
o Safe isolation methods & sequences identified and recorded. Isolation protocols set out in advance of maintenance work commencing
o Plant, process and safety systems re-commissioning and validation checks undertaken before plant handed back into operation
o Condition monitoring and gathering of performance data & trending to validate the maintenance programme
o Asset management protocols include vital utilities and back-up systems
o Asset management protocols include primary structures and structural support elements
o Maintenance protocols comply with legal codes and standards e.g. pressure systems, ATEX etc
