Accident is one of the big issues that occur repeatedly in the process industries today though there is numerous application of the variety safeguarding measures that have been introduced. Equipment failure is identified as one of the root causes of these major accidents. One of the established standards that address the above issue is Mechanical Integrity (MI) element of Process safety Management System (PSM) 29 CFR 1910.119 (j). It is believed that most of the process industries already recognized the standard but unavailability of effective technique to implement the PSM elements had delay the implementation of this standard. This research study is conducted to introduce a systematic technique to implement MI elements of PSM in process industries to achieve high level of safety in workplace as well as to prevent any accident. This study covered analysis of requirements of the standard, development of framework and prototype tool as well as concept validation through case study from real process plant data. Implementation of this technique will help employer to control the hazards and minimize process hazards that could prevent major accidents such as fire, explosion and toxic release and compliance with the PSM standard simultaneously.
