The traditional view of Process Safety Management (PSM) focuses only on safety as a measure of success – and that doesn’t yield optimum operational results. Operational Sustainability® delivers PSM through our integrated, interoperable Process Safety Framework of solutions, modules, and features — because having a single source of truth and a unified user interface matters.
Done well, Process Safety Management (PSM) integrates multiple management systems to prevent toxic releases, fires, and explosions. A comprehensive PSM solution likes OESuite® helps deliver sustainable Operational Excellence (OE) – stronger overall results that include safer operations at the core.
Operational Sustainability® assists clients with Process Safety by developing business processes, standards, policies, procedures, and field guides. The Operational Sustainability® OESuite® software effectively addresses all aspects of PSM from an integrated perspective, including risk-based process safety. Our PSM software comes with pre-configured process templates, reports, and dashboards. The Operational Sustainability® Process Safety Technical Content set incorporates the 14 Process Safety elements, helping organizations address key Process Safety challenges in a systemic, repeatable way.
Not only does OS offer customizable technical content, we also offer our industry leading OESuite® software platform with nearly 40 modules. To accelerate the implementation of our software, we offer:
Our Technical Content will save you thousands of hours, while allowing you to focus on your organization’s core capability.
Our mobile applications enable personnel to log incidents and near misses, conduct audits, and commission and initiate changes in the field. Operators can access complete information on work order status, permit isolation conditions, and other important process safety information on the fly. Whether on a tablet or phone, mission critical information is at your disposal on your device at any time. The result is safer startups, enhanced sharing of risk information, and improved efficiency.
OS can help you comprehensively address PSM/RMP compliance. PSM forms the core for our Operational Risk Management (ORM) solution and offers foundational elements including Management of Change (MOC), Technical Engineering Content and Data (also referred to as Process Safety Information), and Enterprise Loss Prevention (ELP) leading to a single source of truth. These three foundational elements are highly integrated through the OESuite® platform.
Some key integrations include:
PSM is key to running an organization within defined risk tolerances for chemical hazards. OS leverages an API 754 reporting framework as a hub to roll-up information from OESuite® to detect potential threats. In addition, OS Visual Operations enables users to see threats as they materialize in near-real time at a P&ID or Process Flow Diagram Level.
Today, most companies are seeking to achieve Process Safety Excellence.
OS will help you devise a strategy to achieve your process safety performance goals. Regardless of your company’s size or industry, OS offers comprehensive consulting services to provide the right expertise to assess your needs, diagnose problems, and deliver enterprise level risk-based software solutions through our world-class OESuite® platform – the most comprehensive offering in the marketplace to address your PSM needs.
With the recent emergence of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), companies must move beyond tackling PSM at the facility level to create a risk registry across their organization, serving as a scorecard that feeds corporate ESG reporting.
You can have PSM standards and procedures in place, but if they are not executed properly, you may experience a process safety incident that could be catastrophic to your personnel, your community, and your business. Cultural safety provides the operational discipline for proper execution. Without strong Cultural Safety and Conduct of Operations (CoO), companies will struggle to implement an effective PSM system.
Today, most companies rely on numerous software tools to manage their data and are heavily siloed as a result. Very few companies have integrated with their Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) and Data Historians to enable real-time insights into their dynamic risks largely leading to lagging indicator outcomes.
Companies today need a strategy for comprehensive process safety data management that accounts for and addresses the dynamic nature of risk. OS, and OESuite® can help.
Process Safety Health (PSH) is a holistic monitoring and performance manangement methodology that covers all functional reporting areas to provide clear picture of an organization’s overall process safety health and to empower the plant to address risks in real-time. The right PSH program allows organizations to sustain high-level process safety performance over time, develop an accurate picture of real-time performance, and establish predictive trends indicative of future performance.
Interoperability is the key to enabling proactive PSH monitoring, which leads to process simplification, visibility, and operating efficiency. Aggregating lagging indicators after the fact won’t suffice. Companies need near real-time monitoring along with integration to the EAM, process historian, or control system to see threats as they materialize.
Why does having an integrated system matter? While not all threats require immediate action, all threats should be identified, prioritized, tracked, and routinely evaluated to ensure preemptive measures are taken prior to harm. One source of truth for that cycle helps prevent losses due to information segregation. As losses occur, operators can use the OESuite® PSM Framework to put bad actors on watch lists and analyze patterns to ensure strategic organizational objectives continue to be met. Because performance management is an integral part of the framework, measuring what matters and tracking progress toward desired PSH outcomes, and toward operational excellence overall, is simple.
