Accountability | AIChE


The obligation to explain and answer for one's actions that are related to expectations, objectives, and goals. In this context, those that are accountable for PSM activities are answerable to the one person who has the ultimate responsibility for the program. There may be multiple persons accountable for an activity but only one person with the ultimate responsibility. Accordingly, it is a powerful element of an effective process safety management system.
