Report an Incident
- A “pressure equipment integrity near miss” as defined in API RP 585: “The discovery of equipment degradation or process operating conditions outside of acceptable limits that requires immediate action to shut down the equipment and/or perform repairs to avoid a loss of containment, usually the result of some form of damage mechanism such as those covered in API 571, but did NOT result in a loss of containment or structural stability”.
- Loss of containment due to misoperation of pressure equipment. Note: “Misoperation” means operating the pressure equipment in a manner that is inconsistent with its intended use or design, which requires immediate action to shutdown the equipment
- The discovery of in-service pressure equipment components in which the construction, or the repaired or altered condition, does not conform to the pressure equipment design
- A condition of pressure equipment installation or operation having high potential to cause injury that requires immediate action to shut down the pressure equipment
- Circumvention of critical safety devices or controls, or maintenance practices or procedures, with a high potential for injury to personnel or damage to the pressure equipment that requires immediate action to shut down the pressure equipment
- Pressure equipment failure or operation that results in an Alberta
Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) reportable accident
Note: See the Alberta WCB website for information regarding WCB reportable accidents.
- Pressure equipment failure or operation that results in an injury or fatality that did not occur in a workplace.
- A “pressure equipment integrity failure” as defined in API RP 585: “The termination of the ability of a pressure equipment system, structure, or component to perform its function of containment of the process fluid (i.e. a leak or loss of containment).”
- An event that is not associated with the operation of the pressure equipment, which results in damage to the pressure equipment.
