Process Safety Management Governance
Speaker will share how the organization developed a governance structure around process safety management where the company assured 2-way communication from the top of the organization to the bottom. This was done by identifying several KPIs (70+) both leading and lagging in line with API 754. Later, these KPIs were addressed at different levels depending on how critical they were. Company went down to operation levels and developed system to monitor Standard operation conditions and Safe operating limits as part of the shift hand over report. The company also shared a dashboard of key critical KPIs to assure organizations have visual feedback on PSM performance. This was all part of changing the culture to a more PSM focused culture to identify issues within the organization and address them through the right communication channel.

Stuck in the Status Quo, Real Data on Business and Line Ownership of Process Safety
The speaker will share the results of the PSM/ORM Survey was conducted online by Sphera Consulting. The survey uncovered that while companies are big proponents of a strong safety culture, they still need to simultaneously manage and improve productivity, environmental pressures and costs while reducing risk in today's complex operating environment. The 2019 survey, the industry fourth, shows how companies are big proponents of a strong safety culture. Still, there is a large gap between Process Safety intent and what occurs during everyday operations.

Increase the Value of Your Hazops: Add a Relief Systems SME to the Team
The recent experiences have shown that identifying major causes and consequences with the help of a relief systems subject matter expert (SME) before the HAZOP workshop will reduce the workshop duration and cost involved significantly, and more importantly, will add a level of confidence that the analysis of the HAZOP team accurately reflects the relief device capabilities as a safeguard, compared to simply checking the relief device report. Afterwards, the workshop team can concentrate more on operational and maintenance issues which are often sidelined, due to inadequate time in workshop. Details of these recent HAZOP experiences will be discussed by speaker in this session.
