Major Hazard Facility

With the processes underpinning a license to operate including leadership, accountability, compliance and ongoing asset monitoring, integrated management and reporting framework for is critical.

As assets age, potential blind spots can arise where operators and maintainers are relying on work programmes that may not adequately address ageing issues.

Proactive asset management prevents defects before they occur. Real-time integration with management and reporting framework ensures that safety case documentation is an output of the system, not an end in itself and allows for synchronisation of activities across assets, processes, and people to align efforts, minimise rework and embed more efficient processes.

Why not consider a living Safety Case?


To Succeed:

Identifying best-practice can be impossible when ageing assets skew monitoring results and minimise opportunities to learn and optimise.

The large amounts of information generated throughout the process safety life-cycle can quickly become unmanageable and unusable.

Efficiently compiling a myriad of hazard studies with assurance, asset monitoring and work order management system data into a coherent safety case remains daunting.

What Good Looks Like:

Managing all risk and compliance obligations in one framework provides a real-time and unified view of exposure and control effectiveness so that safety case reporting is simply the output from the operational process.

Monitoring integrated KPIs should provide clear visibility of ongoing integrity and overall risk position, with drill-downs for more detailed information as required.

Standards should be simple to define and modify in line with changing requirements and made available for the next cycle of verifications.

Integrated action tracking ensures non-compliances are addressed in time, with follow up reviews, where required, and the loop always closed.
