The American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) and the American Petroleum Institute (API) Advancing Process Safety (APS) Programs were developed to enhance process safety awareness and performance throughout the petroleum refining and petrochemical manufacturing industries.  Over the past three years, AFPM and API have had the opportunity to collect and analyze a variety of data points from the following APS sources, ANSI API RP 754, Process Safety Metrics for the Refining and Petrochemical Industries, submissions from the AFPM Event Sharing Database, and aggregate results from API Process Safety Site Assessments program.  This paper will describe the methods for collecting and analyzing data, sharing the results and developing tangible materials based on those observed results to help raise process safety awareness  and performance improvements throughout industries.
