The Work Permit is designed to ensure full communication takes place between the area(s) involved, the owner of the affected equipment, and individual(s) performing the work so that hazardous work, and non hazardous work, is performed safely and efficiently.
Lessons learned of an industry loss study that determined that instruments in critical service should require routine maintenance and be provided with regular monitoring.
The purpose of this document is to protect personnel when working on or near exposed energized electrical circuits and equipment. First and foremost, working on unguarded energized equipment is not permissible. However, situations may arise that require energized work
This bulletin is to include roles and steps to conduct the siting analysis, anticipated use and estimated occupancy levels, management review and approval, and retention of associated documentation. The document should address long-term installation of trailers during normal operations and short-term installations that may occur during major turnarounds or significant …
Overheating of pre-insulated instrument tubing exceeded the service temperature of the tracer materials (Polyolefin) which set up conditions for an arcing ground fault as the energized bus contacted the instrument tubing.
Testing Machines typically used for the mechanical testing of materials usually contain the following elements: for gripping the specimen, for deforming it, and for measuring the load required in performing the deformation.
The use of a ground-fault equipment protection device would detected the fault current in the early stages and tripped the circuit when there is problem with the system. It provides evidence that ground-fault problems are not limited to self-limiting cables.
This lesson learned supports the safe practice of removing power to a heater circuit whenever the thermal insulation is removed.
FPSO conversions! Either VLCC to FPSO, FPSO redeployment, or similar engineering works for life extension of naval surface vessels, this bulletin discusses the lessons learned encountered in such "brownfield" projects, with some experience on the issues.
Training requirements for inherent safety begin with the need for general awareness for engineers, scientists, and business leaders. This awareness training should include the concepts of inherent safety along with how inherent safety is implemented in the organization's process safety management, new product development, and project execution programs.
Considerations in the use of Flanges versus Hubs and Clamp Connection.
