Inspection during Periodic Shutdowns
Optimize your inspection activities during periodic shutdowns
To meet statutory obligations and ensure the optimum functioning of your equipment and installations, shutdowns have to take place at regular intervals.
The inspection activities performed during these must be optimized to allow the operations to re-start quickly and safely:
optimizing the breadth and depth of inspection to be performed within the planned timeframe
obtaining assistance in the course of work
ensuring the safety of all personnel during the shutdown
limiting the number of incidents at restart connected to the work done by external companies
