Chapter 2

Maintenance and inspection

The previous chapter discussed some of the normal operating issues to do with process facilities. This chapter describes the related topic of maintenance, where the term maintenance refers to repairing equipment that has failed or taking corrective action before the item actually does fail. Larger changes to the system are handled through the Management of Change (MOC) program—discussed in detail in Process Risk and Reliability Management. Even larger changes constitute stand-alone projects in their own right.
