PSM is an effective safety management system that helps to prevent fires, explosions and toxic releases that could expose employees and others to serious hazards in process industries.
For PSM system to be effective a systematic approach is required to evaluate the process design, process technology, process changes, operational and maintenance activities, non-routine activities, emergency preparedness, training etc.
CMSRS employs the Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS) guidelines developed by Centre for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) and OSHA PSM guidelines to assess the above mentioned attributes and customize the PSM system to suit the requirements of the facility.
This approach is aimed at ensuring that the facility
- Commits to Process Safety
- Understands Hazards and Risks
- Manages Risk effectively
- Learns from Experience
Through elements like Process Safety Competency, Measurement and Metrics, Operational Readiness etc. the capability of the facility to understand and mitigate the risks associated is enhanced. The intent of such an approach to ascertain process safety is to change the attitude of the stakeholders towards the risks affiliated with a process industry.
CMSRS begins by carrying out a gap analysis to know where the facility stands from the PSM point of view. This helps in putting things in perspective. In an orderly fashion workshops and training programs are so arranged to bridge the gap and thus facilitate the smooth implementation and integration of PSM into the regular workings of the facility.
