Why you should Attend?

The purpose of this document is to provide users with the basic elements for developing and implementing a risk-based inspection (RBI) program. The methodology is presented in a step-by-step manner to the maximum extent practicable.

  • RBI is a risk assessment and management tool that addresses an area not completely addressed in other organizational risk management efforts such as Process Hazards Analyses (PHA) or reliability centered maintenance (RCM). It complements these efforts to provide a more thorough assessment of the risks associated with equipment operations.
  • RBI produces Inspection and Maintenance Plans for equipment that identifies the actions that should be implemented to provide reliable and safe operation.
  • The RBI effort can provide input into an organization’s annual planning and budgeting that define the staffing and funds required to maintain equipment operation at acceptable levels of performance and risk
  • Case studies and examples included will bring to life the components that will be discussed and dissected over the two days.
