Mechanical Joint Integrity training

The Mechanical Joint Integrity (MJI) scheme was developed by ECITB and industry experts to address hydrocarbon release issues globally to both increase levels of competency and reduce accidents. This model of training and competence has been adopted by many global oil and gas operators and contracting companies.

The MJI scheme is intended to reflect industry ‘good practice’ for the training and competence of workers in relation to mechanical joint operations. The model applies to the onshore and offshore oil and gas industry to the extent that it is reasonably practicable to do so. It also has general application to all industries where mechanical joint operations are undertaken.

Mechanical Joint Integrity training is aimed at all personnel involved in mechanical joint operations, particularly those who are expected to undertake related duties in the workplace. Correspondingly those who are expected to plan these operations and the supervisors of those personnel performing them should be familiar with these principles.

The MJI scheme consists of a four-stage model of training and competence that can be used by new entrants, existing and experienced workers involved in mechanical joint operations. The ECITB Mechanical Joint Integrity flyer explains each stage of the MJI model and the associated ECITB certificates issued for training and test achievement.
