See If E2G’s Customizable EEPs Are the Best Solution for Your Organization







Best Practices, Maintained By Us & Customized By You

What Are The Equity Engineering Practices (EEPs)?

The Equity Engineering Practices® (EEPs) are a collection of detailed and customizable Best Practices integrated with a customizable management system provided to satisfy the requirements of Process Safety Management (PSM). Originally developed over two decades ago, the EEPs have been used on countless capital and maintenance projects across multiple industry segments and have been continuously updated and expanded to align with changing Recommended and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices (RAGAGEP) requirements.

What sets the EEPs apart is that they are maintained by E²G and customized for you. This means each aspect of the product, including technical content, is fully customizable to meet your needs and preferences.

The EEPs Include the Following:

  • 650+ branded and customizable Best Practice Documents
  • 225+ Pre-Engineered and customizable Piping Classes
  • Customized Management System
  • Customized Operational Excellence Platform

The Operational Excellence Platform allows you to keyword search for content, link to industry standards through third-party systems, integrate and export the piping database to import and align with your purchasing system and CAD models, and electronically freeze a version of the EEPs for your next large capital project.

Features Include:

With the ability to customize, the EEPs give organizations the ability to:

  • Promote Safety and Improve Reliability – by defining the corporate rules for success
  • Capture Corporate Memory – by documenting knowledge and lessons learned in one common location
  • Transfer Knowledge – by providing Corporate Memory in one location for all to access, share, and learn from each other
  • Save Money – by allowing Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to focus on their primary tasks, while also utilizing Life Cycle Management to consider all costs associated with design considerations – such as long-term reliability

Why OSHA Recommends Internal Best Practices

In June, OSHA also publicly supported the concept of internal Best Practices by publishing a memorandum titled “RAGAGEP in Process Safety Management Enforcement” which not only clarifies that OSHA will recognize appropriate internal Best Practices as RAGAGEP, but that OSHA recommends facilities develop internal standards to:

  • Translate the requirements of published RAGAGEP
  • Set requirements for unique circumstances
  • Supplement published RAGAGEP that only partially addresses the employer’s needs
  • Control hazards more effectively
  • Address hazards when the codes and standards used for existing equipment are outdated

Customization is Key

While many companies agree that internal Best Practices are beneficial, most are not able to commit the resources nor have the internal expertise necessary to develop and maintain their internal collection. As a result, organizations settle with a collection of general industry Best Practices or rely on the standards used by large engineering firms for their major capital projects.

The problem with both of these solutions is that neither can be customized, and customization is the key to success because it allows each organization to include the level of detail required to consistently make decisions in alignment with the organization’s unique requirements to manage risk and improve long-term reliability.

Why the EEPs Should Be Your Internal Best Practice Solution

The EEPs give you all the benefits of an internal Best Practices collection with requiring only a fraction of the work. As an EEP user, we maintain your collection for you but allow you to customize your collection as needed.

With the ability to customize, organizations can accomplish the following:

  • Promote Safety and Improve Reliability – by defining the corporate rules for success
  • Capture Corporate Memory – by documenting knowledge and lessons learned in one common location
  • Transfer Knowledge –  by providing Corporate Memory in one location for all to access, share, and learn from each other
  • Save Money – by allowing SMEs to focus on their primary tasks while also utilizing Life Cycle Management to consider all costs associated with design considerations – such as long-term reliability

How EEPs Work – Develop

We are able to offer complete customization because each company gets their own EEPs collection. Upon purchase, our base collection is copied, branded, and customized to look and feel like your Best Practices collection. E²G’s technical team will create a customized, access-controlled website to provide the information. No new software is needed, and the EEPs are available anywhere you have access to the Internet; including your mobile devices.

How EEPs Work – Implement

Whether you choose to use the EEPs out of the box or modify the collection prior to use, we will work with you to develop a customized implementation plan that includes the following:

  • Initial customization efforts
  • Development of a Management System
  • Piping Database alignment
  • Customized on-site training
  • Document review plans
  • Legacy collection reviews and consolidations
  • Piping cross-references to legacy piping classes

How EEPs Work – Maintain

Whether you choose to use the EEPs out of the box or modify the collection prior to use, we will work with you to maintain a customized collection. The EEPs are maintained by a number of industry leaders:

  • E2G SMEs with decades of experience and who are heavily involved in industry committees – learn about them here
  • Experienced consultants, many who have recently retired from major corporations in a number of different industries
  • Partnering Companies that provide additional expertise to ensure we are providing current Best Practices and technologies

Industry Leadership

And EEPs are utilized in a variety of fields:

  • Asphalt
  • Biofuels
  • Chemical/Specialty Chemicals
  • Midstream
  • Nitrogen/Fertilizer
  • Petrochemical
  • Pipeline
  • Refining – Currently being used by +33% of active US refining facilities!

What Others Are Saying

“On a higher plane than anything out there… what’s important is that they’re dynamic – you can update them because there’s a feedback mechanism… They are quite detailed. I can actually purchase items with these practices, without needing to specify things separately.” – Project Manager, Major Gulf Coast Refinery

“What I like is that I can call the expert at E²G any time who wrote the Practice and can get an explanation of why a particular requirement is in there. These guys are involved in all of the industry committees and know what’s happening. Their business is to serve customers like me. They’re not a refining competitor or an E&C company trying to sell me on their next job…” – Reliability Engineering, West Coast Refinery
