Asset and Protection Integrity

Ensuring that the process containment (primary, secondary and tertiary) is intact and that protection measures (barriers) are fit for service including:

  • Active Human
    • Human actions (often interacting with technology)
  • Active Hardware
    • Executed by technology
  • Active Hardware + Human
    • Combination of human behavior and technological execution
  • Passive Hardware
    • Works by virtue of its presence
  • Continuous Hardware
    • Always operating

This summarises and/or aligns with the following familiar PSM elements:

• Mechanical integrity
• Asset integrity and reliability
• Inspection and maintenance
• Management of safety critical devices
