This is an extract of the supporting information & guidance cards from the IOGP Process Safety Fundamentals documented in their Report 638.
- We identify, eliminate, or control the full range of potential ignition sources during task risk assessments and during job preparation and execution.
- We minimise and challenge ignition sources even in “non-hazardous” areas.
- We eliminate ignition sources during breaking containment and start-up and shutdown operations.
Tips for Managers:
- Regularly check that personnel understand the full range of potential ignition sources and the requirements for ignition source control.
This page only summarises the guidance – refer to the IOGP report and/or IOGP website for further information.
