Process Safety Program Development & Implementation

Process Safety Program Development & Implementation

Benefit from a Process Safety Management program designed for enterprise-wide or facility-specific implementation.

Developing, implementing, and enhancing process safety programs is crucial for safeguarding personnel, the environment, and assets in industrial settings. By identifying and mitigating potential hazards, these programs prevent incidents such as fires, explosions, and toxic releases, ensuring compliance with regulations and avoiding legal liabilities. Continuous improvement of safety procedures enables organizations to adapt to evolving risks, effectively manage uncertainties, and foster a culture of safety and responsibility in the workplace.

AcuTech has experience in the full “life-cycle” of process safety management honed by developing PSM Programs for clients across the world.

AcuTech Model Process Safety Management System

Based on four underlying pillars supported by the 20 elements of the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) Risk Based Process Safety Model.

Through this AcuTech is able to ensure that the facility is able to effectively take over the roles and responsibilities of the program from AcuTech personnel after the implementation. AcuTech also puts into place mechanisms for performance review and continuous improvement of the program.

AcuTech Model Process Safety Management System Phases

AcuTech’s Process Safety Management (PSM) program development and implementation model is based on four comprehensive phases:

Phase 1: Diagnosis
Perform a detailed assessment of your current state to determine your goals and desired direction.

Phase 2: Design & Development
Design, develop, review and approve policies, practices, and procedures tailored to your organization’s specific requirements and challenges, providing guidance for the various element activities.

Phase 3: Implementation & Training
Roll out the management system for each PSM element with coaching and support for facility personnel. Conduct comprehensive training for personnel to manage and execute activities for each PSM element, including awareness training for all employees.
AcuTech offers training ranging from basic functional awareness to in-depth competence development programs, ensuring facility personnel are fully equipped to fulfill their roles and responsibilities.

Phase 4: Optimization through Mentoring, Assessing
Monitor the implementation and provide mentoring to site personnel, periodically assessing the program’s effectiveness in each element and making necessary improvements.

AcuTech establishes effective and proven process safety management work processes.
