PSM Software for Process Safety Directors

Solutions by Role: Process Safety

When you’re responsible for Process Safety Management (PSM), you are constantly balancing protecting the people inside and outside of your facility from chemical hazards with the need to create value through operating that facility. Ensuring everyone goes home safely each day and maintaining your privilege to operate – while still operating a profitable plant – isn’t simple or easy.

As the person responsible for PSM decisions, you must have a clear, accurate picture of your overall operation and projected outcomes – including risk – at all times. Otherwise, decisions made in a vacuum may adversely affect the overall risk profile of your facility. Achieving an accurate, holistic picture of PSM drivers and interrelated component decisions doesn’t sound simple or easy, either, but it can be with the OESuite® PSM framework.

How does the PSM framework from OESuite® Change Your Outcomes?
We know it’s sometimes hard to make the business case for further investment in PSM technology or transformation efforts. We can help you define and clarify the business case that a better approach to PSM not only changes your Value Protection equation, but also enhances your Value Extraction opportunities. In other words, enhancing PSM positively impacts the bottom line in more ways than just avoiding process safety incidents.

OESuite® Business Benefits for Process Safety/RMP

Process Safety Benefits

OESuite® offers a single source of truth, single pane of glass experience for a holistic view of your overall risk in real time. OESuite® allows fully integrated management of all the regulatory requirements of OSHA PSM and EPA RMP. Our modules are based on the best practices outlined in Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS) which enhances the intent of PSM / RMP regulations into an interoperable series of management systems. In addition, we also utilize the API 754, Process Safety Performance Indicators for the Refining and Petrochemical industries to establish best practice incident reporting and meaningful metrics for out-of-the-box use as part of our Process Safety Health Module. RBPS includes the following critical elements that are not expressly part of OSHA PSM or EPA RMP:

  • Process Safety Culture – Does top management create and manage a Process Safety Culture? If so, it will be seen in line employees (Operators, Maintenance Tech).
  • Process Safety Competency – Are process safety duties part of job descriptions? Engineer training? Operator certification? Maintenance / Craft training? PHA team participants?
  • Stakeholder Outreach – Have you initiated a dialogue with those potentially impacted by company operations?
  • Conduct of Operations – Are operations and maintenance tasks done in a structured manner with minimal variability (consistency)?
  • Measures & Metrics – Is Recommended Practice API 754 (identifies leading and lagging process safety indicators) used at your company?
  • Management Review – Continuous Improvement – Are management systems functioning as intended? Do you know because they are routinely evaluated and not just after a PSM Compliance Audit?
