SUMMARY

Key Programme 3 was a three year inspection project carried out by HSE Offshore Division between 2004 and 2007. Inspections were recorded using standard templates both Onshore (Appendix A) and Offshore (Appendix B). Topics were scored: Red (Non-compliance/Major Failing), Amber (Isolated Failure/ Incomplete system), Green (In compliance/OK) or White (Not tested/No evidence). A team of three inspectors, comprising of two specialists (generally from different disciplines) and a regulatory inspector (IMT), would award the traffic lights depending on the duty holder’s responses to the questions provided in the Appendices and their own comments and required actions. Some topics would have both an onshore and offshore template. Other topics would have only one template. The OSD KP3 committee would later examine the completed inspection reports and award, for each topic and platform, one overall traffic light. Inspections of system tests of individual safety-critical elements (eg ESD Valves or HVAC dampers) and the condition of the plant were also recorded using traffic lights (see Appendix B).

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 alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy.
