2022 Pressure Equipment/Inspector Ratio Benchmarking Survey

October 19, 2022
Please login or create a new account to participate in this benchmarking survey.

This benchmarking survey only requires a few minutes to complete, and all eligible participants* will receive a report containing the final results.


The following survey provides a benchmark of fixed equipment mechanical integrity (FEMI) inspection department staffing in comparison to the amount of API 510 (or equivalent) inspections for which facility inspectors are responsible. These metrics are valuable for determining and justifying inspection resources based on staffing at similarly sized facilities.

At a minimum, the survey provides information for readers to understand staffing density at peer locations across the globe. We hope to provide a basis to validate current inspection staffing levels or to substantively justify additional resources, as appropriate.

Survey Details

Valid responses received on or before January 13, 2022 will be included in the final data.

*Please note: This survey is available to current employees of owner-user/operator companies. Responses by non-operators will not be included in the final results. Additionally, only submissions from company email addresses will be considered; public or ISP email addresses (e.g., Yahoo, Gmail) are not allowed.

**A note on privacy: We take your privacy very seriously. All data released in the final report will be anonymized and aggregated. Your submission is completely private and confidential. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
