Abstract
The purpose of this report is to elaborate on and discuss important aspects and challenges related to barrier management during different lifecycle phases of an offshore or onshore facility. Challenges and recommendations are based on SINTEF's project experience, review of relevant documents, review of audits performed by the Petroleum Safety Authority and input from a PDS workshop on barrier management. An outline of a holistic approach/method for management of safety critical barriers is presented, which will be used as a foundation for the development of a practical industry guideline for overall barrier management. It may also be used for self-assessment of on-going or established barrier management processes, e.g. checking compliance with the recommendations provided in this report. The report has been developed as part of the PETROMAKS innovation project “Tools and guidelines for overall barrier management and reduction of major accident risk in the petroleum industry”, funded by the Norwegian Research Council and the members of the PDS forum.
