Remotely operated shutoff valves (ROSOVs) for emergency isolation of hazardous substances: Guidance on good practice

FABIG Members: Log-in to access all FABIG resources

SUMMARY

For operators and managers of installations that handle, store or process hazardous substances, as well as plant supervisors, design, process and maintenance engineers and safety professionals. Critical guidance which facilitates risk assessment procedures on whether a ROSOV is needed and accordingly details steps for any implementation to ensure compliance with the relevant health and safety law.Though this is a naturally complex subject, competent readers are steered smoothly through the information flow via an innovative series of breakdown analyses that explore pertinent issues under typical, stage-by-stage query headings such as 'what if...' and 'then what...'. Extensively illustrated throughout by photographs, cross-sections, logical flowcharts and easy-glance data tables.

This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including any opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the author(s) alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy
