Interactive Infographic Released to Showcase a Disaster-proof Asset Integrity and HSE Program

NEW ORLEANS, June 25, 2012 /CNW/ - The most dangerous time in the life-cycle of a plant is not during its operational maximum, but the dormant shutdown and turnaround phase. Several high profile plant incidents have underlined the importance of asset integrity and HSE in the refining world.

With this in mind, Oil & Gas iQ recently created an interactive infographic 'Asset Integrity / HSE Success Wheel'. Under the People, Process and Production categories, it outlines 24 essential criteria that need to form part of a winning and disaster-proof AIM/HSE program.  Please click here for more information.

This infographic was produced in preparation for Oil and Gas iQ's Shutdowns and Turnarounds North America 2012, taking place from September 17 - 19 in New Orleans, is a leading TAR conference that focused on the full life cycle of shutdowns and turnarounds, from initial planning through to restart.
