PSM/RMP Review

  1. For each process MOC procedure conducted, has the procedure included a review/analysis of the relief system to determine if the throughput change might result in deficiencies in the existing relief system and corresponding safety and health?
  2. Do the history files for the pressure vessels randomly selected as per SectionXI.E.3.aa contain at least the following PSI? (board #, mawp, design codes, welding procedures)
  3. Does the employer have a MI procedure for inspecting pressure vessels for corrosion under insulation (CUI) and does the employer inspect pressure vessels for CUI?
  4. Does the PHA for the equipment consider the siting of all occupied structures?

 

If you answered no to any question, you could receive a fine from a NEP inspection. It may be time for a compliance audit to determine if your PSM/RMP program will pass inspection. Contact us for your next compliance audit/mechanical integrity inspection. We can get you back on track.
