About this Training Course
Risk Based Inspection (RBI) is a proven method used to optimise inspection activities based on risk analysis. RBI improves plant Integrity, reliability and safety while reducing unplanned outages and repair costs. Once the RBI program is operational, inspection learning is fed back to help lower the risk profile of the Asset. RBI is just one component of an overall integrated Asset Management Process. This course meets all requirements to comply with API 581 and API RP 581.
All participants will complete detailed pre-course questionnaires before the course, enabling trainers to tailor course content in order to meet specific delegate needs. Participant objectives are re-visited before, during and after the course, allowing us to focus on outcomes and address any participant concerns and specific issues during the program.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Appreciate a holistic “Asset Management” program, and know where the RBI process fits in, and of course the benefits it will deliver
- Carry out successful RBIs and introduce the RBI process in a sustainable manner into their company’s Asset Management Process
- Understand the importance of Teams and have an appreciation of each other’s roles and responsibilities
RBI is primarily a team activity and as such benefits from a cross functional team participation. This course is aimed at Managers, Engineers, Inspectors Technicians and Operators at all levels who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of static equipment.
This course will help them to understand the risks on their unit, mitigate this risk and ensure resources are more effectively utilised, ensuring the integrity of plant and equipment and the safety of personal.
The design of this course is such that all learning styles are catered for in a participative, friendly environment. This is a highly interactive course. Theory, techniques and principles are presented via lecture, video, and practical case studies, then reinforced with individual and syndicate exercises. It is our goal to ensure the subject matter is relevant to all and delegates will be encouraged to share experiences and give their own personal insights into the subject matter. Questions and active participation is encouraged throughout particularly at the daily wrap up sessions. This provides opportunities for participants to discuss specific issues, and if possible, find appropriate solutions. Our goal is to maximise the benefit of this training for every delegate.
