Job Duties and Responsibilities
- Bear witness to various construction completion activities and approve all reports for these activities, including, but not limited to: Flushing / Blowdown, Pressure Testing, Slope Checks, Passivation. This person will review the reports for completeness and assure the minimum requirements of the test(s) have been met.
- Collect approved construction completion records (CCRs, such as, flushing / blowdown reports, pressure testing reports, slope checks, passivation reports, weld documentation, etc.) and filing it appropriately in the final turnover package per applicable system. It may be necessary to make copies of the CCRs and file those copies in other TOPs for tests that span more than one system.
- Keep account of the scope of CCRs for each activity and assure proper sequence of testing where there is a proper sequence. For example, flush of WFI Distribution piping should occur prior to passivation of the same piping. In addition, an understanding of the scope of remaining testing should be available at all times.
- Generate and complete TOPs for each stick built system (such as utility distribution systems). This role also includes adding supplementary information to vendor packages (TOPs) where system boundaries include more than the vendor provided equipment, components, and piping.
- Communicate with trades who provide documentation for TOPs. There are minimum requirements to the documentation that will be filed in TOPs. This person will make sure the minimum requirements are met. For example, cut sheets and/or manuals should be noted with the correct size, materials and options of the installed component and should include the tag ID(s) of the installed component(s). All documentation submitted for inclusion to TOPs should make known the component Tag ID(s) relevant to that documentation.
- Participate in Mechanical Completion walk-downs and assure the P&IDs are in an 'as-built' state (redlined, as-built is acceptable). The drawings should reflect the field installation. During the walk-downs, attention to field details and requirements should be kept in mind. For example, all components need to be tagged and those tags have to be attached with the agreed to method and not be in a place where the tags can fall off of the component, such as draped over the handle of a ball valve. Also, all piping must clearly be labeled with contents and direction of flow.
