The topic of Damage Mechanisms-Asset Integrity and Reliability is a specialized topic in the broader field of Risk Based Process Safety. It is multi-disciplinary by nature requiring knowledge of:

  • Corrosion Theory – Ways in which Process Equipment Degrades in Operation
  • Unit Mechanical/Chemical Processes - How the Equipment is Designed and Operated in the Process
  • Test and Inspection - How to Detect and Evaluate the Equipment during Operation •  
  • Restorative Actions - How to Return the Equipment to Operational Status

Damage Mechanisms: Asset Integrity and Reliability, is a key element of OSHA 1910.119 subpart j- Mechanical Integrity. National Emphasis Program audits have consistently cited deficiencies in this key PSM element as one of the larger risks for the safe operation of facilities. Recently, companies and organizations such as CCPS have focused efforts specifically on increasing the understanding and implementation of Asset Integrity and Reliability as it relates to process safety.
