UK-based subsea consulting company Namaka Subsea reports it has developed a one-day FMECA (Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis) awareness course. The course is designed to provide awareness of the methodology and process of completing a diving system FMECA as well as guidance on how best to review current diving system FMECA’s, according to the firm.
Namaka said the course is made up of 16 modules, which are discussed in depth and contain essential information required not only to understand how a FMECA should be carried out, but also how to manage a FMECA upon completion, and is aimed at all diving operational personnel.
Sandy Harper, Namaka Subsea managing director, added: “Studies carried out by Namaka Susea of current diving system FMEA and FMECA assessments has identified failures of the assessments and how they are managed. Therefore, we decided to develop this course to provide awareness of how a systematic assessment can be carried out on diving systems and support vessel interfaces, with the emphasis on diver and operational personnel safety.”
