The Operational Sustainability® (OS) OESuite® Process Risk Module is a comprehensive solution for assessing risk and managing recommendations. Create your own risk ranking matrix and apply risk assessment techniques, incorporate customized content (e.g., HAZOP guidewords, human factors checklists, facility siting checklists, FMECA), and more – all without leaving the module.

Risk Level Distribution

Users can drag and drop to adjust columns to fit their culture, leverage our calculation engine for LOPA scenarios, utilize smart text, copy nodes and cells, create their own risk matrix and key content, import and export risk assessment templates from leading Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) tools, spell check, and more to customize the Process Risk Module for their needs.

HAZOP worksheet and configuration

Information from PHA studies are available for a LOPA study automatically, based on risk-level filtering. Clients can leverage the LOPA functionality to take credit for independent protective functions that sync with the visualization module to ensure you have the proper level of engineering and administrative safeguards – while assessing changes to threats in real-time. The Process Risk Module is part of the Safety Lifecycle Solution that includes integration with engineered safeguards like the Safety Instrumented Systems + Mobile, Alarm & IOW Management, and Incident Management + Mobile Modules.

Bowtie Analysis

Import Bowties from LOPA studies, work permits, MOCs, incidents, and audits from other interoperable OESuite® Modules. Add threats and barriers, review hazard information, determine barrier effectiveness and accountability, apply criticality, and more.

HAZOP Recommendation

Users can manage recommendations from risk assessments in the Process Risk Module or leverage the inherent interoperability of OESuite® in the supporting followthrough via the Corrective & Preventive Action Item Management + Mobile, Management of Change + Mobile, Task & Compliance Management + Mobile, and Work Management + Mobile Modules.

Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) Feature

Through OESuite®, users can also determine combustibility and explosivity hazards of materials, including identification of flash fires, explosion hazards, and fire, and communicate and manage hazards appropriately. Once combustibility or explosibility is determined, users can conduct additional tests as needed for performance based-design, DHA, risk assessments, hazard mitigation and prevention, and more.

Intelligent PHA

In addition, OESuite® offers an Intelligent PHA™ managed service, which cuts study time 20-30% and greatly enhances study quality. Intelligent PHA supports the facilitator by providing a knowledge database that contains industry equipment templates and information based on consensus codes, standards, and other industry best practices.

Intelligent PHA™ is equipment-based, so any specific piece of equipment will provide PHA Cause-Consequence pairs for review by the PHA Team. Facilitators can use the system to create a pre-populated list of standard scenarios during preparation. Users can also quickly re-validate previous hazard reviews without recopying any records.

Because the process of selecting equipment is more efficient, it helps prevent missing standard hazard scenarios, Teams can validate or adjust scenarios as necessary, rather than spending big chunks of time identifying causes. Ultimately, the team has more time to focus on identifying major, potentially subtle, hazards. While the Intelligent PHA process and tools do not absolve the team of their hazard identification responsibility, it does ensure the team can better accomplish their tasks.

Need to work in remote areas? OESuite® also offers an offline PHA capability with synchronization back to the system. Our offline solution is built with ease of use in mind.

Once the risk assessment is complete, recommendations can be seamlessly managed in our MOC + Mobile, Corrective & Preventive Action Item Management + Mobile, Task & Compliance Management, and Work Management + Mobile Modules. The interoperability of OESuite® helps ensure nothing falls through the cracks once your study is done.
