Lesson Learned/Best Practice

On past shutdowns at the facility, not everyone was clear on who was responsible for shutting systems down and exactly how to shutdown systems so that only the areas where the work is taking place was affected.  Walk all MOP/Shutdown’s with the facility.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

All MOP’s/Shutdowns moving forward should be walked with all parties involved so that everyone is clear on responsibilities and what is required for the shutdown. MOP’s will also be submitted and walked well in advance so that there is enough time for the information to be passed along to necessary personnel.
