Companies operating across hazardous industries are under pressure from stakeholders to reduce operational risk and improve performance in the light of increased regulatory requirements. Increasing pricing pressures from up and coming geographies is driving the requirement to increase production efficiency across the chemicals industry and companies continue to strive to improve HSE records by providing safer environments for workers.
Chemical companies can benefit from Petrotechnics’ extensive experience of managing work in hazardous industry to address these challenges. In any organisation in hazardous industries there are three primary elements; the Plant, the People and the Interaction between the People and the Plant. In the assurance loops for the plant and the people, policy is delivered through practices that are embedded in digital systems. A gap is created in the interaction of people with the plant as it relies on the frontline decision making and adherence to policies and procedures.
Recognising this critical gap in operational assurance, Petrotechnics’ Proscient closes the loop in the riskiest part of operations. The system intelligently embeds corporate and regulatory policies and processes ensuring they are consistently delivered in frontline practice. Chemical companies using the tool have the ability to achieve not only an appropriate compliance regime, but the ability to move beyond compliance in the riskiest part of their operations. It provides the means to ensure a shared view of the key operational risks of the Interaction of People with the Plant from the frontline to the boardroom.
