Briefing Note No.6


Energy Institute Briefing Note No. 6 Safety Critical Procedures

Documented procedures are required as part of a safety management system. If they are difficult to use or if there are other problems with them as described in this briefing note, then it’s likely that the system for producing procedures is at fault and needs to be overhauled. Procedures are not required for all tasks but are most useful for difficult or infrequently performed tasks (start-up/shutdown, emergency, key maintenance tasks) they provide a consistent and safe means of performing tasks, and they are useful in training.
