Mechanical Integrity (MI) is a management system or program designed to cover process safety critical equipment subject to regulatory compliance (i.e. 29 CFR 1910.119(j), EPA RMP) to prevent or minimize catastrophic release of toxic, reactive, flammable, or explosive chemicals. An MI program must have written procedures that at a minimum address static / fixed equipment, rotating equipment, relief systems, instrumented, electrical and controls systems –including emergency shutdown systems.
Equipment reliability is also key objective of MI help meet corporate financial goals. The program basis is Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices (RAGAGEP) from sources such as ASME and API that are also supplemented with company and peer learnings as appropriate. Since this is a lifecycle approach, the process starts at design and proceeds through construction, startup, operations, and eventually dismantlement/remediation.
This survey is focused on benchmarking organizations based on their existing MI programs. People who take part in this survey will receive a free copy of the report generated from the survey results. All results will be aggregated; no individually identifying information will be included in the final report.
