Proscient’s Activity Risk Management


Frontline operations is where everything comes together. It’s where production 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.

Human interaction with the asset often introduces risk into operations. Whether it’s the introduction of hazards (e.g. hot work), breaking containment, isolation and reinstatement, startups and shutdowns and even routine things like process sampling can impact risk exposure on the plant. Typical Electronic Permit to Work (ePTW) and Control of Work (CoW) systems which manage these processes focus on how the person undertaking the work could be harmed, without any consideration of the harm the person could do to the system. In other words, there is no way of understanding how the state of dynamic process safety barriers potentially impacts activity and how the activity will impact the state of the barriers.

Proscient’s Activity Risk Management, a critical add-on for Proscient Integrated Operations Management w/Smart PTW changes the equation. It allows you to visualise and manage the Major Accident Hazard cumulative risk for all activities associated with permitted and operations activity against a dynamic process safety barrier model. This provides a holistic and common means of balancing risk against production at all levels of the operation.


Know what’s happening, where it’s happening, and what’s driving the risk

The Proscient Operational Excellence Platform v4.0 delivers a single, shared view of the operational reality. It arms everyone with the right information, at the right time, so they can make more-informed, effective operational decisions.

As part of the platform, Proscient’s Activity Risk Management is the first “connected”, digital solution of its kind. It can seamlessly connect the risk impact of the work your frontline teams are doing to the operational reality on the ground.

  • Part of a tightly integrated digital software platform based on a single code base
  • Connects the state of the process safety barriers to work activity and the impact of the activity on process safety barriers in a practical and routine manner.


Proscient’s Activity Risk Management add-on for Proscient Integrated Operations Management w/Smart PTW  provides an entirely new level of visibility. It allows teams to understand how the activity to be performed impacts dynamic process safety barriers and how the state of the barriers may impact the activity. This joined-up view of the operational reality helps everyone make better operational decisions.

Activity risk can be viewed in time, location and in a dynamic process safety barrier model with drill-down capabilities to quickly understand what’s driving risk. With Proscient’s optional Major Accident Hazard (MAH) risk capabilities, you can understand how all activity risk impacts barriers leading to a specific major hazard event (e.g. fire & explosion).

With Proscient you can make better, joined-up operational decisions regarding activity to proactively mitigate operational risk and optimise the schedule based on risk.



  • Automatically capture activity-related risk from permitted and operations activities
  • Intelligently translate and map risk data to its cumulative risk impact


  • Enable a collective understanding of operational risk from activity at all levels of the organization
  • See and understand the health of dynamic process safety barriers and what’s driving activity risk
  • Access new leading indicators of operational risk that reflect the operational reality
  • Make MAH risk exposure visible, prominent and available for all in real-time


  • See the impact of activity risk on the schedule.
  • Proactively optimise the schedule to reduce process safety risk
  • Improve prioritisation of planned maintenance, safety and operations activity
  • Proactively manage and mitigate exposure to major accident risk
  • Communicate risk insight and intelligence to all levels of the organisation


Proscient’s Activity Risk Management can underpin your organisation’s efforts to standardise the way you manage activity-related operational risk. It helps keep your people and assets safe by ensuring everyone knows what’s happening, where it’s happening and what’s driving the risk. Are you ready to get started?
