Petrotechnics Delivers New PSM Insights & Technology To Drive Standard Compliance and Help Lower Operational Risk
Aberdeen, 02 September 2013 – Petrotechnics, the global leader in transforming frontline operational performance and lowering operational risk, will present on the key role that technology can play in ensuring corporate standards compliance and driving frontline improvements in operational risk management at the 1st CCPS Asia- Pacific Conference on Process Safety on 5th September in Quingdao, China.
This is the first CCPS Asia Pacific Conference, highlighting the growing importance of Process Safety across the globe. CCPS have organized the conference working alongside the China University of Petroleum, and the China Chemical Safety Association bringing together professionals, government, and academics in China and internationally to share advancements in process safety.
Petrotechnics will present on the need for a holistic understanding of operational risk based on linking asset integrity risk (barrier impairments) with the current workload risk. With a more joined up view of current operational risk, organizations can dynamically move to their front foot and proactively manage a more optimized and less risky performance.
We will highlight how Process Safety professionals can use new technology to systematize how operational risk is dynamically captured, visualized and managed across plants. Traditionally, frontline operational risk is managed in silos with PSM focused personnel or engineering functions managing asset integrity risk and operations managing the risk associated with the intervention work occurring on the plant. Additionally, organizations often struggle to consistently and reliably capture the most appropriate data required to provide them with accurate risk profiles of the status of the plant and the cumulative risk of all of the work scheduled to take place during a defined period of time.
By providing a technology based intelligent, holistic integration of these disciplines; Petrotechnics empowers organizations to optimize how they consistently manage workload against operational risk according to their policies. With a common view of operational risk in space, time and an understanding of what is driving risk, technology can help organizations make better decisions and move strongly towards operational excellence and improve the overall plant health, integrity, safety and efficiency in order to get more work done safely.
Iain Mackay, Petrotechnics’ Executive Vice President said “Petrotechnics has provided related solutions over the past 12 years, recognising the major issues and market demands, and I believe we can help organisations streamline their processes and provide the tools to proactively manage overall operational risk of workload within the proximity of asset integrity and barrier management. With real-time visibility and powerful tools, the workforce can proactively lower operational risk without impacting production and prevent any major accidents. We’re proud to be taking part in the inaugural CCPS Process Safety conference for this region.”
Louisa Nara, Technical Director at the Center of Chemical Process Safety added “Identifying, evaluating and managing hazards and risks are core components of process safety. Since becoming a member of CCPS, Petrotechnics has been actively involved in our conferences by presenting papers and participating in technical sessions to further the understanding of these subjects.”
