Course Description

The mechanical integrity (MI) element of process safety, also known as asset integrity, helps to ensure that equipment does not fail in a way that causes or affects a release of a highly hazardous chemical from a process. It covers the proper design, fabrication, procurement, construction / installation, operation, and maintenance of equipment throughout the entire equipment life cycle. It is a requirement of both OSHA's Process Safety Management (PSM) Standard (29 CFR 1910.119) and EPA's Risk Management Program (RMP) rule (40 CFR Part 68). 

This course explains how to design and implement a MI program or improve an existing MI program for maintaining the integrity of critical process equipment to improve reliability and satisfy government regulations. It teaches how to establish a management system that addresses the elements of MI.
