Process Safety Management

Minimize risk and enhance compliance assurance

To maintain safe and resilient operations, energy companies need a streamlined approach to proactively manage process safety compliance obligations. Many organizations struggle with siloed information and sub-optimal work processes, making it difficult to proactively identify, manage and control hazards.

Process Safety Management (PSM) solutions help companies identify process hazards, manage related safety information, prevent incidents, manage change and track follow through of obligations to closure.

Key benefits

Impact business and achieve better results.

  • Improve adherence to management systems

    Execute effective policies and procedures to drive enhanced process safety governance.

  • Reduce equipment downtime

    Ensure relief devices are properly maintained and tested as process conditions change to improve asset integrity and reduce primary containment loss.

  • Accelerate a risk-aware culture

    Move from reactive to proactive with PSM risk identification and assessment coupled with real-time intelligence to address plant alignment changes.

  • Better manage a contract workforce

    Ensure contractors are current with critical safety training while providing effective control of work during routine operations, outages and turnarounds.

  • Improve process orchestration

    Break down data silos to ensure procedures, training and incident investigations are easily accessible while driving policy enforcement through process orchestration.

  • Enhance compliance assurance

    Meet standards for regulatory compliance through fundamentals, including audit, process hazard analysis and inspection, to boost operational integrity.

Business impacts

  • Risk prioritization

    Operations, Maintenance, Engineering and Compliance teams need to identify, prioritize and resolve issues. Siloed asset data causes blind spots, delaying repairs and increasing risk. Establish a single source of truth with a 360-degree asset view.

  • Regulatory compliance

    Organizations are required to prove their workers are compliant with safety regulations. Many safety documents are paper based and lack mechanisms for workers to acknowledge receipt. Establish centrally auditable digital distribution and receipts.

  • Early detection, prediction and measurement

    Companies want to minimize plant operation expenses while maintaining safety. P&IDs and process safety information are often in PDF form, making finding and connecting it all slow and costly. Leverage AI-driven analytics and KPIs for faster action.

  • Incident investigation

    Different departments use their own systems and record-keeping for safety information. If an HSE incident occurs, HSE must scour hard copies and disparate files to find the root cause. Centralize information to streamline investigations.

  • Business growth

    Businesses need to be able to scale operational and asset management to address growth. System siloes limit data accessibility, slowing decision-making. Digitally transform and integrate processes to optimize operations.

  • Data management

    Process safety management requires information sharing between departments. Managing disparate systems, such as content management and asset management, increases IT costs and limits content orchestration. Integrate systems to boost efficiency.
