CONNECTING PSM TO FRONTLINE OPERATIONS

Understand and share your risk reality – and enable proactive intervention.

Engaging the whole organisation in the routine management of major accident hazards is the key safety challenge for the Oil and Gas industry.

The dynamic nature of risk

Your operational risk landscape changes as fast as your operational reality. Frontline operations is where process safety management (PSM) happens. It’s where your people are operating the plant, intervening in the plant, doing maintenance work, introducing new hazards and potentially impacting the state of the plant. By its very nature, it’s a dynamic and inherently dangerous place to work and manage.

Towards a shared understanding of risk

Unavoidably, risks are often managed in different parts of your organisation. Bringing them all together in a joined up way to view their impact on the operational reality of your plants is a real challenge.

What we really need is to make sure everyone assesses risk by the same criteria – and has a practical understanding of how their decisions can directly or indirectly influence the risk picture or barrier performance. We need to make process safety management (PSM) operational to keep our people safe and ensure safe and sustainable production.

Proscient: three screens, one operational reality

Now it’s possible to see and manage risk right across the organisation – with Proscient, the world’s first software platform for Operational Excellence.

On three simple screens, everyone can see exactly what’s happening, where, and when – in real time. You can even simulate the risk associated with a particular activity – or with a lack of action.

Proactive risk mitigation

Silos are removed: the software creates a common currency of risk that allows everyone to understand and assess risk by the same criteria, and to see its cumulative impact on the operational reality of the plan. You can see the health of your barriers and what is impacting them.

Proscient enables you to connect PSM to its impact on operations so your entire organisation can make better operational decisions and proactively intervene to prevent major accidents.

Proscient in brief

  • Major accident hazard risk is visible, prominent and in real time
  • Risk is connected to the operational reality in a practical and routine way – for everyone
  • HSE performance becomes an integral component to production and sustainability

“Process safety became part of the vernacular of the energy business… However, it has also led to a reduction in responsibility and understanding of operational risk by operations staff… In other words, operational risk has come to mean process safety and has been separated from operational performance as a whole, with the former managed by safety professionals and the latter by operational professionals.”
