An essential element of any improvement program is the measure of existing performance needs, as well as identification of new and future needs. This paper presents Petrobras’ Process Safety KPI's (Key Performance Indicators) for Wells and Drilling activities, created by a committee comprised by experienced professionals with expertise in those activities. The continuous improvement of Petrobras’ Safety Management leaned on four steps: accidents (definition of process safety anomalies), competence, diagnostics and implementation of effective leading and lagging process safety metrics. Petrobras understands that said continuous improvement can be achieved through the definition of accidents, incidents and Process Safety deviations, awareness promotion, Process Safety training (developed in cooperation with Petrobras Corporate University), definition of Process Safety Management elements at corporate level and development and implementation of effective leading and lagging process safety metrics with periodic critical analysis.
