Managing Ageing Assets – Creeping Changes, Data Trending and Experience from Incidents
22 September 2022
From complex environments, such as
chemical plants and offshore installations, to more conventional
work equipment and machinery, organisations need to know that the
assets they are responsible for are safe and that the right
management systems are in place to keep them that way.
Managing ageing assets is becoming an
ever more important issue as the UK's industrial base ages. This
has been highlighted by HSE's inspection programmes of ageing
plants both onshore and offshore.
Being conscious of creeping change, the
small changes that are gradual in nature, unseen and not planned,
but can add up to a significant change, is an important
consideration for organisations who wish to proactively manage
their ageing assets.
This course introduces the concept of
creeping change and is suitable for safety professionals, engineers
and managers who are responsible for managing ageing assets, or who
have ageing assets on their site.
The course will explain in detail the
background and development of the Creeping Change HAZard
IDentification (CCHAZID) methodology that was developed by HSE and
published as guidance by the Energy Institute.
- Understand creeping change and why you need to be aware of
- Learn how and why the CCHAZID methodology was developed
- Learn how you can use your data more effectively to better
- Learn from past incidents associated with poor asset management
due to creeping change
