HSE Safety Alert Issued

HSE Safety Alert Issued
Posted 28th August 2019

Pipe-work dead-legs have long been considered as an elevated risk; corrosion can be aggressive, leading to accelerated thinning of the pipe wall, and they often receive less attention than line pipe.


A recent incident of localised corrosion in a dead-leg resulted in catastrophic full-bore failure of the line and a large loss of containment of extremely flammable material.


This safety alert is to remind operators of relevant good practice for dead-leg inspection to help avoid similar incidents.

  • I passed my CSCS course with Libben a few years ago and was happy with the trainer and course. I have continued using Libben for my First aid and SMSTS, the trainers were great and would recommend Libben to anyone and the price was cheaper than the other course providers. Libben staff were very helpful. Will be using them again soon. - CITB SMSTS
