Why Risk Based Safety Inspection?

MAY 2021

by: Chad Corkern
A Risk Based Inspection (RBI) is a risk analysis of operational procedures for a plant or facility. Other three- and four-letter acronyms tend to be associated with RBI – including Risk Based Asset Management (RBAM), Risk Based Integrity Management (RBIM), Risk Based Management (RBM), and Risk and Reliability Management (RRM).

As should be abundantly clear, the main theme here is “risk” – and at Crow we offer a range of services to help you minimize that risk. The focus is on safety and plant integrity. Minimizing associated risk has multiple benefits. It helps you maintain compliance and avoid fines with regulations from OSHA and elsewhere. It also helps to ensure plant uptime by identifying potential issues before they cause problems – and addressing them without interrupting operations.

At Crow, we help you realize these benefits with proactive RBI services. It starts with a Crow compliance expert visiting your facilities to acquire information and assess initial safety conditions. After analyzing the findings, we produce drawings that address open issues with the goal of achieving full protection and a safe working environment. You also get full documentation regarding measures and recommended procedures that comply with known standards, codes, and best practices.

So, why Risk Based Inspection?
The answer is straightforward: Keep the risk low, keep employees safe, and keep operations up and running – which keeps the revenue flowing. These are all good things.
