Proper review of your facility's process safety management is essential to eliminating potential equipment failure. Maintaining the integrity of equipment is more than simply performing inspections. A well implemented mechanical integrity (MI) program involves multiple components that improve the safety and reliability of your facility's equipment.It can save lives, reduce risks, also save your company from incurring hefty fines for non-compliance issues.
TEAM's mechanical integrity (MI) programs ensure the continued integrity and fitness for service of piping systems, pressure vessels, tanks and related components. Our mechanical integrity engineers are extremely well versed in pertinent codes and standards of OSHA's process safety management (PSM) and EPA's risk management program (RMP) regulations.
Plant integrity, safety, and reliability are major concerns to plant operators and managers. TEAM’s Mechanical Integrity programs utilize management system frameworks, including the development of policies and procedures, competency management, and effective metrics to maintain the asset in a fit-for-service condition while extending its remaining life in the most reliable, safe, and cost-effective manner. It ensures process equipment is fabricated from the proper materials and is properly installed, maintained and replaced to prevent failures and accidental releases. It is essential that a healthy process safety program incorporate Mechanical Integrity so that the combination of the likelihood of failure and the consequence of failure makes the risk to people, to the environment, and to the company as low as reasonably practical.
Enhance Your Process Safety Management Program
Process safety is a disciplined framework for managing the integrity of operating systems and processes that handle hazardous substances.Since the introduction of the OSHA process safety management (PSM) standard (29 CFR 1910.119) in 1992, companies have committed considerable effort and expense to developing PSM programs. Unfortunately, serious incidents and audits all too frequently point to gaps in PSM implementation.TEAM’s effective Mechanical Integrity program utilizes a systematic approach to evaluating the whole process safety management process. Using this approach, the process design, process technology, process changes, operational and maintenance activities and procedures, non-routine activities and procedures, emergency preparedness plans and procedures, training programs, and other elements that affect the process are all considered in the evaluation.
