Walk The Line

This is an extract of the supporting information & guidance cards from the IOGP Process Safety Fundamentals documented in their Report 638.

  • We use up-to-date documentation (e.g., P&IDs) that accurately reflect installed systems and equipment.
  • We physically confirm the system is ready for the intended activity (e.g., valve positions, line up of relief devices, etc.).
  • We alert supervision to identified documentation and readiness issues before operation.

Tips for Managers:

  • Regularly confirm that process safety information is accurate and up to date.
  • Discuss walk the line issues with front-line workers and follow up on concerns raised.

This page only summarises the guidance – refer to the IOGP report and/or IOGP website for further information.
