HSE shared research project results in good practice guidance

Cover of Energy Institute Good Practice Guidance document

Earlier this month the Energy Institute (EI) published guidance for the improved management of engineered composite repairs (ECRs) throughout their lifecycle.

The guidance is the product of a multi-year shared research project between HSE and industry partners set up to develop and promote the sharing of good practice throughout the industry.

The EI guidance document is based upon the project’s original good practice guide authored by David Johnson, who leads HSE's Centre for Asset Integrity, based within its Science Division, and Matthew Blackburn, an offshore specialist inspector from HSE’s Energy Division.

The guidance focuses on a number of key areas, such as quality assurance and integrity management, inspection, in-service performance, human factors and it incorporates a range of key learnings and insights.

The publication is free to download for registered members of the EI Publications website.

For more information on how to access the guidance, please visit the EI Publications website.

Can you be part of our next Shared Research Programme?

Shared Research is a very effective way of conducting research into the health and safety issues that are shared collectively by both HSE and industry.

By working with industry, HSE can contribute to a much more diverse portfolio of research interests. In turn, industry gets to contribute to the scope of a project at the outset and have early sight of the project outcomes.

Following the success of the first shared research project into ECRs, HSE is now in the process of establishing a follow up programme of work, seeking to build on the learnings of the first project through a detailed evaluation of recently decommissioned repairs from a safety critical application.

The proposed project offers a rare opportunity to study the safety critical offshore application of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) ECRs employed in service for an extended period of time.

And finally…HSE hosts free webinar on hydrogen and engineering materials

Hydrogen Materials Webinar

Demonstrating the compatibility of materials and infrastructure in hydrogen environments will be key in the safe energy transition to net zero.

Tune in to our free webinar on 9th December to hear HSE hydrogen safety and materials science specialists explain why engineering materials play an important role in the risk assessment for hydrogen safety.

As well as hearing what they have to say, there will be the opportunity to pose your questions to our panel.
