When it’s because of Iron Man, it’s awesome.

Buildings coming down in fiery explosions!

Ok, but no one’s popping popcorn over the catastrophes that occur when PMV isn’t being practiced (unless you’re a horrible person).

That’s why we have Recommended Practice 578. It’s designed specifically to prevent the destruction of large assets.

In this episode I cover:

  • The relationship between RP578 and MVP
  • How is this practice enforced?
  • The training needed to comply with RP578
