Risk Based Inspection

RBI is a systematic approach that enables users to make informed business decisions regarding inspection and maintenance expenditure. The fundamental objective of implementing a successful RBI programme is to create an inspection strategy that clearly defines.

  • The equipment items which require inspection;
  • The optimal periodicity of inspections; and
  • The correct techniques that should be performed to identify defects that a particular component is likely to develop.

The RBI process is based on the following activities:

Risk Based Inspection

The fundamental reasons for implementing RBI are to:

  • Measure and understand the risks associated with current inspection programs
  • Provide a basis for shifting resources from lower to higher risk equipment
  • Enhance the cost effectiveness of inspection and maintenance resources
  • Monitor risk reduction as a result of implementing inspection practices
  • Use historical data to facilitate the maintenance planning process for future installations
  • Allow management to review safety in an integrated, cost effective manner
  • Increase reliability of equipment and operation thereby extending asset life
  • Minimise loss of production through selecting cost effective inspection programs without compromising safety and risk to environment
