This document aspired to maximise awareness, understanding and knowledge of the Safety Case, targeting areas and improvement via cascading the right information to the right people in the right way (that is including but not limited to HSE induction, training and the like).
Provide an independent review on the readiness of the facility to commence initial start-up safely with a design suitable for an effective and efficient move to a hydrocarbon facility ready to start production. It is a structured review to ensure the facility is well prepared to commence start-up operations safely.
