Most engineers in the chemical process industry talk about Management of Change (MOC) with authority, but you rarely hear them mention PSSR or Pre-Start Up Safety Review in the same breadth. It seems that all of the elements of PSM are important for discussion but one…PSSR; but why? PSSR was, and is, as important as any of the elements of PSM/RMP/BSSE for two reasons. First, PSSR is a redundant check that a change has been reviewed, analyzed, approved and accomplished in a quality manner. In a “quality manner” means the change has been accomplished, usually by maintenance staff, in a manner acceptable by operations. The change must be completely done and well done. Secondly, a PSSR is intended to be a check that all process safety information has been updated and all the training has been accomplished concerning the change.
This live presentation explores the role and importance of PSSR, the many challenges industries face when performing PSSR and various mitigation paths.
