Picture this…you’ve begun work with a manufacturing facility, and you notice that the facility doesn’t seem to have a robust inspection program. As you dig a little deeper, you find that inspections have been done in the past; however, there are no records that anything has been done to that equipment since inspection. In the back of your mind, you know that the Process Safety Management regulation calls for a mechanical integrity program. As you start to think more about how to tackle the issue, someone interrupts with a higher priority task, and your thoughts about your facility’s mechanical integrity (MI) program deficit are history.
Does this sound familiar? Yes? You’re not alone. This is a common theme throughout the manufacturing industry. Mechanical integrity programs are often overlooked because the effectiveness of a program is not regulated nor seen as a mandated requirement. Most corporate manufacturing organizations require that their equipment’s integrity be maintained, but they are not clear on how they actually manage that task.
How can we help?
We assist organizations in developing a program that helps increase the reliability and safety of assets, while identifying options to optimize potentially limited resources. We will provide guidance on:
- Identifying critical needs;
- Defining options to optimize current year budget plan; and
- Planning for the upcoming budget years.
With these three deliverables, we can help any facility management team forecast budget needs, identify outages, and address any additional mechanical integrity issues. Most importantly, we can help teams regain trust in their facility’s mechanical integrity program.
It’s never too late to implement a sustainable MI program. Reach out today to start dialogue about ways we can improve your mechanical integrity program.
