Safety Management - Completions

Further to the Construction Phase, the end of construction sees a staged transition of asset & equipment between the Construction Group and the Commissioning Group.

In these projects, this is managed by the Completions group and the Safety Management Teams responsibility is to accept these staged handovers in a safe and known state

The site Safe System of Work (SSOW) requires to be integrated with a Commissioning based SSOW, which deals with the specific management (in detail) of initial energisation and SIMOPS outside of a normal Operations based SSOW.  This phase is known as the ISSOW (Integrated Safe System Of Work) and utilises a Commissioning PTW scheme that has the duty of care with the location, recognises the legal aspects of such a system and ideally utilises isolation schemes that are acceptable to the Operational SSOW.

Plenary Project Solutions have provided these teams and CPTW systems on many of our previous projects.  

Key in the Completions phase is to provide the right initial isolations directly at handover based on logical commissioning boundaries and system demographics.  The LOTO (Lock Out Tag Out) expertise is shared between the Electrical (E&I) and the Mechanical (M&P) teams for Process Isolations and Electrical & Instrumentation Isolations.
