Implementing or Reviewing PSM - The added value of guidance

Yet while the engineers understand the technical aspects of PSM, there can still be formidable difficulties implementing the elements. In countries with high Power Distance and low Individualism, as in many developing economies, engineers look to line management for specific direction, setting of priorities, and resources. Let´s review what need to see to ensure our PSM is up and running

Implementing or Reviewing PSM - The added value of guidance

  1. 1. Implementing or Reviewing PSM The added value of guidance Yet while the engineers understand the technical aspects of PSM, there can still be formidable difficulties implementing the elements.

  2. 2. Meet your presenter • Carlos WIGSTROM • WXPERT Founder • wigstrom@wigsxpertpsc.com • www.wigsxpertpsc.com • 23 years Process Safety experience Successful PSM implementation requires either adaptations to the local culture or change in the culture. Therefore, cultural differences must first be recognized, followed by development of a PSM implementation strategy that takes these differences into account. Inability to culturally adapt the effort can result in an organization that does not fully realize the benefits of Process Safety Management.
  3. 3. Who is this for? YourOrganization WHY?: Key factors such as an aging workforce, a retirement boom in developed markets, a lack of skilled workers in emerging markets and an increasing reliance on contractors have contributed to a significant increase in operational risks.While most companies understand the need for a robust learning and development program to build organizational capability and mitigate lack of awareness about Process Safety Management, many lack a well defined method for transferring knowledge and developing the required skills.

  10. 10. PSM is the proactive application of management principles to a process for the prevention of loss of containment events Any site which stores, handles or manufactures hazardous substances or energy will have an inherent risk Process Safety Events = Low Probability & High Concequences What is Process Safety Management (PSM)? “For a long time, people were saying that most accidents were due to human error and this is true in a sense but it’s not very helpful. It’s a bit like saying that falls are due to gravity.” DrTrevor Kletz

  12. 12. Reliance on the low personal injury rate at Texas City as a safety indicator failed to provide a true picture of process safety performance and the health of the safety culture. A “check the box” mentality was prevalent at Texas City, where personnel completed paperwork and checked off on safety policy and procedural requirements even when those requirements had not been met. BP Texas City lacked a reporting and learning culture. Personnel were not encouraged to report safety problems and some feared retaliation for doing so. The lessons from incidents and nearmisses, therefore, were generally not captured or acted upon. Important relevant safety lessons from a British government investigation of incidents at BP’s Grangemouth, Scotland, refinery DANGER!!WE COULD BEVERY CLOSETO A MAJOR EVENT

  14. 14. Assumption from this point on: The approach that WXPERT always propose to companies is to adopt a Process Safety Management based on Risk For the purpose of this WEBINAR I am working with a RBPS approach of 20 Elements, however my advise to Organizations is to be sure that you have the main pillars in place to develop you proper elements in case you would not like to use the CCPS RBPS model Main Pillars are: 1. Commitment to Process Safety (The most important one typically treated one the system is already running) 2. Understanding of Hazard and Risks (Not many people understand the difference) 3. Risk Management in Place (the complete process) 4. Learn from Experiences Understanding the risk associated with an activity requires answering the following questions: 1. What can go wrong? 2. How bad could it be? 3. How often might it happen? Based upon the level of understanding of these answers, a company can decide what actions, if any, are needed to eliminate, reduce, or control existing risk.

  19. 19. Outcoming Webinars Tier 4 Events - Operational Discipline - Do you know how are you performing in your facility? Oct 20, 2016 9:00AM COT at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/192188412913209859 Operational Discipline, as we define it and most others would agree, is “doing the right thing, the right way, every time.”That is a pretty simple definition, but when you start thinking through the implications of what it takes for employees to be properly equipped and have the motivation to do that, things get more complicated. If you break down the definition, you see there are three areas of focus needed to drive the right behaviors of Operational Discipline: 1. Know what the right thing to do is 2. Be willing to always do the right thing 3. Ensure others also always do the right thing Further Information on http://www.wigsxpertpsc.com/webinars
