HSE Good Practice Awareness Course For Composite Repairs.

The HSE have recently published a Good Practice Guide for the use of composite repairs. The guide is aimed at owners of plant, platforms, refineries etc. where the use of composite repairs to rehabilitate pipework and structures is common. The guide includes 4 phases of activity, namely;

Phase 1 – Decision making - how to select a composite repair if a defect is detected during an inspection activity

Phase 2 – Pre-installation activities – what on-site activities should be performed and what documentation from the repair supplier should be reviewed and approved

Phase 3 – Installation – what on-site QA/QC measurements should be made and what documentation from the repair supplier should be reviewed.

Phase 4 – Ongoing integrity management – what should be contained within the repair register.

In other words, the Phases cover from how to select a composite repair solution if a defect is detected during an inspection activity right through to managing the integrity of the composite repair in service.
ECS have developed an awareness course to provide owners with a detailed description of what the HSE expects from the owner and how the activities, e.g. design, installation, QA/QC etc of the composite repair company fit in with that guidance.

These courses will be delivered by our technical Director and advisor to the HSE on Composite repairs, Professor Simon Frost who has reviewed these guidance’s for the HSE, More details of the course , its contents and a registration form , please , Email Jennifer.garside@ecs-world.co.uk.
