What you Need to Know About Relief and Flare Systems
- OSHA requires employers to have proper and current documentation for relief and flare systems.
- If you recently had process expansions or modifications, your relief system design documentation may not be up to date.
- Under API-521 and OSHA standards, documentation requirements are becoming more stringent and are resulting in costly fines.
- Relief and flare systems are affected by processing modification, expansion, debottlenecking and other changes, and documentation must be updated accordingly.
