Process Safety Management

Are your Facilities as Safe as you Claim?

Effective safety management still remains a significant challenge to many operators in the process industry. From our strategic safety reviews and independent process safety management (PSM) system audits, we continue to detect significant weaknesses in PSM performance that are unknown to the senior management team. Whilst many operators have invested heavily in engineering measures, only a select few have made significant progress in understanding their key process safety risks, implementing effective control processes,  achieving a sustained step change in safety culture and proactively monitoring process safety performance. Failure to detect, understand and manage key PSM weaknesses can result in inappropriate and poorly targeted safety-related investments that ultimately fail to reduce a facility’s risk profile.
