Risk Based Inspection

Optimising Plant Operation and Maintenance through Risk-Based Inspection (RBI)

On-demand Webinar

On-demand Webinar


Risk-based Inspection (RBI) is a critical procedure in identifying, assessing, and categorising industrial risks stemming from equipment or structural degradation. By analysing the probability and consequences of potential failures, robust inspection and maintenance program can be developed, significantly structuring the inspection planning process and enhancing reliability and safety in plant operations.

This webinar offers a comprehensive understanding of RBI principles and how the implementation drives efficiency, exploring the API 580 / EN 16991 framework requirements. As we cover RBI methodologies, technical insights, and practical considerations, participants will gain a nuanced understanding of existing practices. Moreover, through real-life case studies, we will examine practical applications, unveiling both the successes and potential pitfalls when implementing RBI within an organisation.

Discover how this approach not only fortifies safety protocols but also optimises processes, leading to substantial savings in both time and resources. Watch the webinar to unlock the potential of RBI and elevate your approach to maintenance and safety.
