Chemical processing companies are increasingly being expected to operate their assets in the most efficient and safe manner possible. Improved asset inspection and management practices are particularly business critical in asset intensive organisations where there are significant challenges to address in terms of increasing service demand, increasing stakeholder expectations, a deteriorating asset base and constrained funding.
A comprehensive asset inspection regime is absolutely essential to the successful management of ageing infrastructure facilities.
RSS has developed comprehensive infrastructure inspection methodologies that are applied at each point in the infrastructure management cycle. Our inspection practices are designed to ensure that asset owners and operators are able to meet the increasing challenges posed by various stakeholders:
In safety critical environments such as COMAH or DSEAR facilities, we have considerable expertise in the development of inspection policies and procedures that monitor compliance with satisfy legislation, regulation or internal company governance and ensure the safe operation of infrastructure assets.
Furthermore, when things go wrong with a built asset, we can also help with the incident investigation to ensure that root causes are identified and the appropriate learning points are disseminated across a business. When we assist with an investigation, our aim is to identify, via root cause analysis and audit, the key vulnerabilities that contributed to the failure.
In summary, our built asset inspection services deliver the following benefits for clients;
A robust and comprehensive infrastructure inspection programme is, therefore, an essential component of a sustainable asset integrity management system on a chemical processing site.
The management team at RSS has approaching 50 years of combined experience in the highly specialist area of infrastructure inspection and maintenance and has been providing these services in a COMAH Top Tier environment since 2007.
We are fully competent and accredited to develop and implement infrastructure asset inspection programmes for chemical operators.
