To operate an easily accessible secure database for sharing incident information among members with a focus on the lessons learned from the incident. The PSID "Committee" is comprised of representatives from only paying member companies. Only manufacturing companies are eligible to join. A separate membership and set of obligations from regular CCPS membership is required because of the confidentiality of the data. Membership pricing is very reasonable and includes access for every employee of the company joining if approved by that company’s PSID Administrator.
CCPS Project Subcommittees
Provide timely and informative process safety messages directly to manufacturing personnel to improve process safety awareness.
To develop and operate a pilot database of operating company reliability data to aid in process safety and maintenance evaluations. Once pilot database is proven, expand to a full database of maintenance and reliability data for equipment in the Chemical Processing Industry and Hydrocarbon Processing Industry.
Formal, systematic benchmarking program to allow participants to know the relative standing of their process safety programs. Additional fee is required.
Create a library of short (1 to 4 slide) PowerPoint files. This will allow for easy sharing and presentation. Other media such as video clips (embedded in PowerPoint presentations) or podcasts would be considered. Another potential idea is to have TSC members record the moments to provide a personalized, reality feel. The material topic and/or intended audience would influence the media selection: i.e. PowerPoint (printouts) for a toolbox meeting v. podcasts for a business leader focused Process Safety Moment.
SAChE is a standing CCPS subcommittee responsible for: Evaluating requests for CCPS to participate in other organizations’ events or projects, identifying how CCPS would participate, and recruiting volunteers or identifying staff to support these activities.
Preparing a second edition of the Guideline for Writing Effective Operating and Maintenance Procedures. Update knowledge and regulatory requirements over the past decade.

It should address risk decision making at all levels of the organization and describe methods and tools which can be applied to different types of risk information and risk studies, including considerations of uncertainty.
This project will develop and publish a concept book providing guidance how to control and mitigate dust hazards in the workplace. It is intended to focuses on the methodologies for predicting and measuring dust hazard parameters, design of suppression and venting systems, and other related topics.
This project would revise and update the current CCPS publication “Guidelines for Facility Siting and Layout”, including information on occupied portable buildings, facility and plant layout. Reference documents would include but not limited to API 752 and 753 as well as OSHA/EPA interpretation letters and recently published CCPS books touching on this subject.
