Operational mistakes are reduced and, when committed, are usually minor in nature
We believe —and well-operated plants have proven— that every plant should be handled within the confines of a clearly defined body of policies and procedures.
As part of our mobilization service, we always develop a comprehensive Policies and Procedures Manual for each facility. Just as a pilot does every time he gets into his airplane, we perform a "preflight" checklist before starting your valuable equipment.
Insurance companies’ investigations show that in the majority of the cases when an incident occurs, it is due to human error. That’s true for power plants, airlines and practically any industry. Therefore we believe that procedures must be:
Accurate and correct
Followed to the letter
Easy to use and located near the equipment to be operated
Accompanied by a startup / shutdown checklist to be signed to prove it was followed
Staff should be well trained on the procedures
Staff must be aware of consequences for not following a procedure
When this policy is followed, operational mistakes are reduced and, when committed, are usually minor in nature. Each existing procedure will be individually reviewed and edited for project-specific conditions and requirements. In addition, there will be a significant number of new procedures developed that apply only to your project. Among these you will find procedures dictated by specific project permits and licenses, both for plant systems and for integrated normal and off-normal operations.
The system is designed to be modular in nature and can be expanded over time as procedures are updated or new ones are created. It will be stored in Word and Corel Draw format, developed by our staff in conjunction with our training contractor team and placed on the local network. The overall manual will be sponsored and administered by the Mobilization Manager until the end of our engagement.
At that point, overall sponsorship will be transferred to one of the permanent plant team members, with each individual procedure having its own designated sponsor. This approach makes the procedures a living document, readily available for use by everyone. Energy Experts Now will deliver the procedures manuals in the language of your choosing. Our copyrighted format is simple, clear, concise and easy to use by the field operators. You won’t get large, unwieldy “stay on the shelf” operating procedures from us.
