As facilities become older, process safety compliance becomes increasingly challenging. Often the original design data is missing, incomplete, or so highly modified that determining the design baseline is extremely difficult, leading to problems with Management of Change. As facilities get older, the “tribal knowledge” about installation, configuration and maintenance, is lost as the workforce retires and is replaced. This session seeks to identify the key process safety issues, associated with aging facilities, and approaches to mitigate these issues.
