Risk Based Inspection (RBI) allows our clients to make informed business decisions based on inspection and maintenance expenditure. Our RBI defines:

·    The equipment that requires inspection

·    The optimal periodicity of inspections

·    The correct techniques used to identify defects likely to develop

The RBI process is based on:

·    Data Collection

·    Risk Assessment

·    Risk Ranking

·    Inspection Plan

·    Mitigation

·    Reassessment

Implementing RBI is crucial as it:

·    Measures and understands risks in current inspection programs

·    Allows shifting of resources from lower to higher risk equipment

·    Increases cost effectiveness of inspection and maintenance resources

·    Monitors risk reduction as a result of implementing inspection services

·    Incorporates historical data to aid the maintenance planning process for future installations

·    Allows management to review safety in an integrated, cost effective manner

·    Extending asset life by increasing reliability of equipment and operation.

·    Selects cost effective inspection programs without compromising safety, minimising loss of production
