For more than 20 years the Abnormal Situation Management Consortium has been studying the impact of human factors in Process Industry Plants. Initially begun with a primary objective to reduce safety incidents, the findings have demonstrated tangible financial performance improvements as well. The ASM Consortium not only conducts research, but it also tests prototype solutions in member plants to verify the impact.

And while new discoveries continue to be made, working on six principal areas will reduce incidents significantly and can reduce the gap between actual performance and ideal performance by as much as 50%. Moreover, five of these six need not require fixed capital expenditure.

Learn what you can do to help reduce incident risk and improve your plant’s performance.


Tom Williams serves as the Global Leader of Operator Effectiveness at Honeywell Process Solutions and as Director of the Abnormal Situation Management Consortium (ASM). ASM is an industry-shaping Consortium of Process Automation users, created by Honeywell and Process Industry Leaders in 1994. It focuses on developing leading-edge insights and solutions for the management of abnormal situations in complex process automation situations.

Tom holds Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University and Rutgers University, respectively. Tom’s career includes roles in R&D at Mobil Oil and Mobil Chemical, and in Process Development & Design, Plant Optimization, and Automation at Honeywell Performance Materials and Technology. Tom holds three patents, and is a certified Six Sigma Black Belt.
