Safety barrier health monitoring to cut maintenance backlog

We helped cut 90% of an operator’s maintenance backlog within three weeks through a data-driven approach to safety barrier monitoring

Overview

Knowing how to prioritise maintenance is a real challenge for offshore operators with thousands of safety critical equipment lines.

Problem: No consistent way to compare one maintenance work order with another.

Few challenges beat maintaining an offshore facility with hundreds of thousands of pieces of equipment enduring extreme weather and pressures. 

One client we worked with had an enormous backlog of maintenance and no data-driven method to help prioritise, other than its overdue status.  Each piece of equipment relates to many others in complex integrated systems – or groups of equipment, but it was difficult to take a system-wide view of risk due to outstanding maintenance.

Maintenance work orders were typically issued based on availability of staff competency or overdue notice – even if these were not the most urgent, impactful maintenance items.

Under pressure to demonstrate its licence to operate, it needed a solution to help work out where to deploy its expert engineering resource for most impact on safety and reliability.

Solution: Integrated approach to barrier health

We worked with Safetec and SINTEF, safety risk experts to design a barrier health monitoring system in line with the operator’s own risk management processes.

We the built the operator a safety barrier health monitoring tool that enabled them to view each maintenance work order in context of the overall health of the system in which it operated – and the one above, laddering up to show a cumulative view of barrier health across multiple systems – and across the whole facility.

So the team was able to very quickly identify work orders that affected multiple pieces of equipment and where maintenance would have the biggest impact.

Impact: Confidence in barrier health and where to deploy specialist resources

Within three weeks of using the barrier panel tool, the operator was able to cut its maintenance backlog by 90%, with verifiable data to provide full confidence in the reduced risk profile.

The tool also provided assurance – to management and the regulator – that the operator had built a good, data-driven, process to understand and manage the barriers in place to mitigate risk and safety incidents across the platform.

Today, the operator uses the barrier panel tool every day in its morning meetings to align on the activities required to manage the facility’s barrier health – and in its assurance to the regulator that it has full confidence in its safety barriers.
