Abstract

Maintenance in the process industry is connected with a significant proportion of the serious accidents occurring in the industry [1, 2, 3]. These findings led the Department of the Dutch Social Affairs Ministry responsible for the assessment of company safety reports for major hazards plant, to commission a study of the management of safety in maintenance in the total life cycle of a plant to assess the potential of improvement [4, 5].
