Gas system assets – Safety Management System
|Publication Date:||1 March 2018|
This Standard specifies a framework for the safe management of assets associated with gas systems.
The specified framework covers all activities, including design, installation, operation, maintenance, management including the provision of an emergency service and decommissioning of assets associated with gas systems.
The specified framework is based on the Plan, Do, Check, Act framework identified in the current edition of HSG65, but with further requirements to make it gas industry-specific.
Note: It is based upon ISO 45001 high level structure that aims to bring a common framework to all management systems. The Plan-Do-Act-Check cycle (see Figure 1) can be applied to all processes covered by this standard and to the safety management system as a whole.
This Standard applies to all fuel gases, including but not limited to Natural Gas (NG), Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Biogas, Hydrogen and Towns Gas.
