Instech Group have competent and experienced personnel who are capable of providing SMS workshops.
The Safety Management Study (SMS) are undertaken in accordance with the requirements of AS 2885.1. The process is summarised below – Pipeline Safety Management Process.
The AS 2885 safety management process requires threat identification, threat mitigation by external interference protection, design and procedural measures.
Where the measures are considered effective in controlling the threat the risk from the threat is considered controlled to a level of acceptable risk.
Where controls do not mitigate the risk from the threat to an acceptable level, further design investigation will be made and actions recorded during the workshop.
The pipeline SMS is documented through an excel spread sheet. This spread sheet is a simple approach for the project and mirrors the process in the figure below.
