Managing Ageing Assets – Creeping Changes, Data Trending and Experience from Incidents

Book Course

22 September 2022

Introduction

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.

Learning outcomes

You will:

  • Understand creeping change and why you need to be aware of it
  • Learn how and why the CCHAZID methodology was developed
  • Learn how you can use your data more effectively to better monitor performance
  • Learn from past incidents associated with poor asset management due to creeping change

Who should attend?

Safety professionals, engineers and managers who are responsible for managing ageing assets, or who have ageing assets on their site.
