  • technical reviews of the site related projects to ensure integrity measures, calibration, material selection, corrosion control and other integrity related aspects


  • Ensure updating the available data management system with inspection and corrosion findings of each equipment facility and major problem areas are accurately and timely logged and identified


  • carrying out the assessment and all relevant data and valid methods, compare current performance and condition with that from previous assessments and identify and report the implications arising from the assessments, whilst adhering to Health and safety legislation, regulations and safe working practices.
  • work safely at all times, complying with health and safety and other relevant legislation, regulations, guidelines and local rules or procedures 
  • ensure that the work environment, assets, tools and equipment are suitably prepared for the activities to be undertaken
  • obtain the necessary test data against which to conduct the assessment
  • carry out the assessment using all relevant data and approved methods
  • check the assessment provides clear and accurate information
  • Carry out activities with minimum disruption to normal activities
  • compare current performance and condition data against previous assessments
  • deal promptly and effectively with problems within your control and report those that cannot be solved
  • Use effectively the industry practices and codes, particularly with ASTM material standards, ASME Sections II, V, VIII, IX and API 510, 570,650, 653 specifications ,NDT Advance  ASNT Level ll , lll ,Rope Access IRATA lll , HSE Certificates OSHA, NEBOSH.`
  • Prepares preliminary reports on inspections and NDT tests, highlighting any abnormalities and issue recommendations via supervisor for action by relevant departments.

  • Reporting using(test and measuring date, comparison to manufacturers’ specification ,historical ,industry standards ,maintenance records , trend analysis )

Asset Integrity Management System (AIMS)

Asset Integrity Management Systems (AIMS) outline the ability of an asset to perform its required function effectively and efficiently whilst protecting health, safety and environment and the means of ensuring that the people, systems, processes, and resources that deliver integrity are in place, in use and will perform when required over the whole lifecycle of the asset.

An Integrity Management System should address the quality at maintenance management and decommissioning. Inspection, auditing/assurance and overall quality processes are just some of the tools designed to make an integrity management system effective.

The AIMS should also endeavor to maintain the asset in a fit-for-service condition while extending its remaining life in the most reliable, safe, and cost-effective manner. The AIM programs attempt to meet API-580, API-581 and PAS 55 requirements, as applicable.

The AIMS document will stipulate the requirements for subsequent Integrity Management Plans.

Asset Integrity management improves plant reliability and safety whilst reducing unplanned maintenance and repair costs.

But an asset integrity management system does not exist in isolation. In order to successfully implement an asset integrity management system in a dynamic operating environment, it is essential that all stakeholders have a consistent and a unified understanding of what the essentials of asset integrity are and how they can be applied in their day-to-day operations, yet this is often cited as among the most significant challenges in achieving an integrity culture within an organization.
