RIG INSPECTION, SHOULDN'T IT BE EVERYONE'S RESPOSIBILITY ONBOARD A RIG?
When working in the same environment day after day it’s easy just to address the task in hand and concentrate on your own area of operation without seeing the bigger picture, like the corroded light fixing passed on the elevated walkway, or the leaking pipe above the dog house or the racking finger dropping to the deck, that’s why a programme of planned maintenance and systematic rig inspection is so important.
For the crew onboard, having an understanding and appreciation of the importance of inspections for equipment, systems and work environments sharpens day to day awareness, promotes collaboration and can significantly reduce the risks of unplanned downtime. ADC Virtual Academy’s UNDERSTANDING RIG INSPECTION QUALIFICATION has been created for all personnel and is designed to equip candidates with a comprehensive appreciation of the importance of inspections, their scope, applicable industry standards, and the resulting benefits to asset productivity and safety.
