管道短信

作为业界持续致力于连续管道安全改进,API的一部分,与...合作行业合作伙伴,开发了一个管道短信评估计划。该计划主要涉及通过独立,可信,第三方团队的行业合格的管道和安全管理系统专家评估员进行评估。

管道短信评估计划

推动安全性和管道安全性能改进的关键工具:管道SMS第三方评估are designed to facilitate Pipeline SMS implementation and share real-time benchmarking information to drive improvements in safety and pipeline safety performance for every operator's level of PSMS maturity. The assessments also provide the pipeline industry with an objective, and consistent third-party option to validate their PSMS systems and address the conformity auditing (API RP 1173, Section 10.2.2) and performance, effectiveness, implementation, and maturity evaluation (API RP 1173, Section 10.2.3 to 10.2.5) requirements of the recommended practice.管道SMS第三方评估确定PSM实施和管道安全性能行业宽普通障碍和挑战的改善机会。这导致额外学习分享经验和行业实践,并作为分析行业绩效的反馈机制,以帮助确定趋势和模式。


管道SMS评估有助于对管道行业的安全和持续改进的文化。Pipeline SMS评估计划有助于展示业界积极主动对API RP 1173的承诺和安全管理系统的实施。通过使用行业开发的元素,管道短信评估计划将评估流程,计划和系统的一致性以及实施的有效性。
