  • Abstract

    Best Practice Guides were produced in collaboration with Crossrail’s Tier 1 contractors and other industry specialist bodies. Guides were produced in response to specific project activities and were aimed at raising health and Safety standards through the sharing of knowledge and experience of the companies working on the programme.

    The Pressurised Systems Working Group, was formed in response to a number of incidents relating to pressurised systems and stored energy release. Although incidents were experienced across the programme, Crossrail identified the need to bring together relevant PC’s/JV’s, with their supply chain, (in collaboration with Crossrail) to determine what improvements can be made and to disseminate information to all other contracts. This collaborative effort resulted in the production of this booklet entitled “Best Practice Guide for Pressure Systems”.

    This document is relevant to any project using pressurised systems.
