Workshop Outline

... You Don't Improve What You Don't Measure

Industry regulation related to process safety is at an all-time high. Every operator is committed to safety and risk avoidance. So why do the incidents and accidents still happen? An essential element of any improvement program is the measure of existing and future performance. Therefore, to continuously improve upon process safety performance, it is essential that companies in the chemical and petroleum industries implement effective leading and lagging process safety metrics.

This workshop is intended to provide hands on knowledge on measuring process safety metrics and using these metrics to help companies improve their process safety performance. The workshop will provide a brief tutorial a metrics overview. It will review the efforts CCPS, API, AFPM  and  others  have  done  to  develop  a  system  to  measure  both  leading  and  lagging indicators and  it will provide a more detailed understanding on the most commonly used metrics tool – API-754. The participants will get involved in performing basic data analyses for both lagging and leading indicators, selection of effective leading indicators, test individual leading indicators for their “leading value”, identify promising areas for improvement initiatives and effectively communication of Process Safety Metrics results. The workshop facilitators will review examples of improvement initiatives developed by industry leaders through metrics, share their experience on effective deployment of process safety metrics and provide their view on understanding and overcoming barriers to Process Safety Metrics program implementation
