Completed CCPS Projects

Completed CCPS Projects are listed below. After clicking on any project, you'll see a link to the book for the completed project. 

Each year the CCPS Technical Steering Committee develops a list of projects, and a Project Subcommittee is established for each approved CCPS project or group of associated projects. Members of the Technical Steering Committee suggest individuals with the appropriate experience and expertise for particular projects.

CCPS Project Subcommittees consist of at least eight professionals from sponsor manufacturers or users of chemicals, with no more than one representative from each company. Click here to view Roles & Responsibilities of CCPS teams.

Project 219: Process Safety Moments Presentations

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.

Project 196: Independent Protection Layers and Initiating Events

The publication will provide process automation engineers, process engineers, facility operators, and safety professionals with the appropriate treatment and requirements applicable to equipment design, administrative procedures, or other “credits” that are treated as an independent protection layer and initiating event from a Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) perspective.

Project 212: Guidelines for Determining the Probability of a Released Flammable Mass

Define a set of approaches for calculating the likelihood of ignition for selected categories of scenarios, and publish a Guidelines or Concept series book of instructions and tools (including a CD of calculation methodologies and structure for input data) to do so. Ideally, three categories of resources needed and matching precision of calculations will be developed (e.g. low, medium, and high degree of precision and accompanying required effort).

Project 224: Hazard Identification eLearning

While “Top-down” emphasis of PSM & other safety programs is necessary, the daily “enforcement” is at the worker and supervisor levels. This project will increase the understanding and buy-in for PSM at the first-line supervisory level through better understanding of PSM, its benefits and the interactions of the various elements.

Project 225: Process Safety Management for Front Line Supervisors

While “Top-down” emphasis of PSM & other safety programs is necessary, the daily “enforcement” is at the worker and supervisor levels. This project will increase the understanding and buy-in for PSM at the first-line supervisory level through better understanding of PSM, its benefits and the interactions of the various elements.

Project 235: Managing the Impact of Natural Disasters on the Process Industries

Proposal: Deal with the subject of catasctrophic natural disasters and their potential impact on chemical and petrochemical process particularly with regard to common mode failures and supply chains. Address issues related to and the importance of planning. Including impact to infrasctructures. Benefits: Natural disasters can cause a wide spread damage and affect operations at a site in addition to internal and external infrasctructure damage. Impacts can easily extend to a company's own supply chain. Understanfing how these occurrences can affect operations allows the site and compnay to...

Project 236: Economic Recovery Preparation Project

As the global economy revives, there will be a number of stressors on hte EHS and in particular PSM systems. HCnages in operations and personnel have occurered to address the economic conditions. The premise is to develop two (2) shoer publicaitons to raise awareness of this issue and provide guidance on how to assess the present condition of the PSM systems and develop a plan for revitalize the PSM systems as the recovery occurs; not after an event. Team Composition: Populate with appropiate personnel with expertise in project management, economic recovery and process safety management...
