About the Instructor for the PESL Seminar 

Brian Krasiun, P.Eng, Principal Engineer, ASFALEIA Inspections & Management Services Ltd.

Having obtained degrees in both Engineering and Administration from the University of Regina, Brian has over 25 years of direct experience with pressure equipment safety programs, including 19 years within the Province of Saskatchewan where he held a number of technical, managerial, and executive capacities that were directly responsible for the development and provision of the Province’s safety and education programs related to integrity management requirements in the design, construction, installation and inspection of pressure equipment.

Recognized as an authority on pressure equipment safety and integrity management, Brian is currently the Principal Engineer for ASFALEIA Inspection & Management Services Ltd, a Saskatchewan-based company that not only provides a wide range of technical training in pressure equipment safety, but also assists provincial regulators and pressure equipment owners with the development and delivery of their inspection and integrity management programs.

Brian continues to contribute to the development of pressure equipment safety standards by actively participating as a member on several technical standards committees and associations, including CSA’s B51 (pressure equipment) and B52 (refrigeration), and a number of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code quality assurance standard and accreditation committees. 

His extensive experience in the development and delivery of pressure equipment safety programs as an owner, a technical standards developer, and as a provincial Regulator allows Brian to provide participants with a unique insight into the programs and policies of TSASK and the foundations on which these programs and policies were developed.
