Proscient’s Major Accident Hazard Barrier Management


Do you have a clear understanding of your plant’s risk levels today, tomorrow, and beyond? Most organisations don’t. That’s because they report compliance and performance based on siloed, static management systems and process safety frameworks. The trouble is an operator’s risk landscape changes as fast as its operational reality. Impairments, deferrals, overrides, MoCs, the status of safety-critical equipment or even how well processes and procedures are followed – they all have a cumulative impact on operational risk.

But unavoidably, risks are often managed in different parts of an organisation. Bringing them all together in a joined-up way is challenging enough for Process Safety engineers – let alone the rest of the business. What you need is the ability to manage and mitigate operational risk tangibly and practically, in real-time.

Proscient’s MAH Barrier Management utilises a simple and elegant means to relate the collective performance of your process safety system to the real, cumulative risk impact on operations at any given point in time. Proscient automatically maps all deviations and hazardous activity against a dynamic process safety barrier model. This enables you to understand the current barrier health and the cumulative risk impact in each area of your asset.


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 decisions.

As a core part of the platform, Proscient’s MAH Barrier Management is the first solution to “connect” all of your operational risk together and display it in a dynamic process safety barrier model.

  • Part of a tightly integrated digital software platform based on a single code base
  • A dynamic process safety barrier model that reflects the real-time cumulative risk impact against barrier health.


With Proscient’s Major Accident Hazard Barrier Management you can standardise the way you manage risk in your operations. It creates a “common currency of risk” that standardises the way in which performance deviations are raised, risk assessed and managed – whether it’s a broken fire pump, lack of HSE training or anything in between. Proscient provides a holistic and common means of balancing risk against production at all levels of the operation.

Proscient displays how all risk comes together to cumulatively impact dynamic process safety barrier health. Risk can then be viewed in time, location and in a dynamic process safety barrier model with drill-down capabilities to quickly understand what’s driving the risk. With Proscient’s optional Major Accident Hazard (MAH) cumulative risk capabilities, you can understand how all of the risk and impairments in the barriers align in terms of specific major hazard event (e.g. fire & explosion).

Imagine your entire organisation starting each shift with a clear picture of what’s happening, where it’s happening, when it’s happening and what’s driving the risk on the asset.



  • Manually raise, risk assess and manage performance deviations for impairments, deferrals, overrides, MoCs, the status of safety-critical equipment or even how well processes and procedures are followed
  • 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 organisation
  • 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 Major Accident Hazard Barrier Management can underpin your organisation’s efforts to standardise the way you manage operational risk in your operations. 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?
