CONNECTING PSM TO FRONTLINE OPERATIONS

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, ...

IMPROVING PLAN ACCURACY AND ATTAINMENT

Everyone knows that planned work is safer, more cost-effective and more efficient than unplanned work. And that the impact of poor planning can be far reaching. Whether it’s overruns, overtime, missed deadlines, expensive rush orders or ultimately the impact on asset availability and uptime – getting it right matters ...

LEARNING THE RIGHT LESSONS FROM INCIDENT AND ACCIDENT MANAGEMENT

Learning the right lessons from incidents and accidents is important. It’s also critical to continually advance your safety improvement efforts. With increasing complexity in our operating environments, the focus of incident investigations tends to concentrate in great detail on uncovering the root cause(s). But too often the solutions implemented are ...

MANAGEMENT OF CHANGE

Change in your plants is inevitable. In fact, systems begin to change as soon as they become operational. Change is typically driven by emergency alterations due to incorrect dimensions, faulty material, defects, effects of loads, and environments not foreseen during the engineering phase. It’s also driven by reactive changes such ...

MANAGING DYNAMIC FRONTLINE OPERATIONS

Frontline operations is where everything comes together. It’s where production happens. It’s where all of the activities needed to operate and maintain the plant, where all of the operational risk and all of the human interaction with the assets occurs. It’s a dynamic and inherently dangerous place to work and ...

REDUCE TOTAL OPERATING COSTS THROUGH IMPROVED EFFICIENCIES AND LESS REWORK

Compared to plan, real average ‘wrench time’ varies from just 30-50% in upstream Oil &Gas, to 70-80% in downstream. It’s a sobering loss in labour efficiency. But the knock-on effect in terms of direct and indirect costs is where the real pain lies. Getting less of the right things done ...

SAFER AND MORE EFFICIENT UPGRADES

External market shifts are not new for downstream operators. Opportunity knocks to capture significant incremental margin if organisations can be nimble enough. But getting them right is tough ...

STO EFFECTIVENESS

Shutdown turnaround outages (STO) and Turnarounds (TO) are a fact of life. Getting them right is tough. The numbers paint a vivid picture of the complexity of an STO: they can involve more than 40,000 separate jobs and the duration averages between 20 and 60 days, depending on the work ...
