Frequently Ask questions
The short answer is that pressure equipment is boilers, pressurised vessels, piping and tanks built to certain standards as well as fired heaters and “heritage” equipment. This excludes gas cylinders, some piping and tanks and also pressurised machines (e.g. turbines).
Hazard levels are the risk ratings calculated for pressure equipment assigned in accordance with the Australian Standard AS 4343 Pressure equipment—Hazard levels. The hazard level is assessed by calculations regarding the volume / diameter, contents and design pressure of the equipment and further weighting factors may be applied. The hazard level is given on a scale from hazard level A (the highest) to hazard level E.
The hazard level of the equipment is then used to assess the registration requirements and inspection types and frequencies for the equipment.
Whilst all employers have a duty of care to supply a safe place of work, there are further responsibilities with regards to managing pressure equipment. Inspection of pressure equipment is a statutory (legal) requirement. Relevant acts and regulations will be dependent on location, but generally refer to the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 3788 Pressure equipment – In-service inspection for the minimum requirements for the inspection, repair and alteration of in-service pressure equipment.
Depending on the hazard level of the pressure equipment (as per AS4343), the design of pressure equipment may require to be registered with the relevant governing agencies.
