Asset Integrity-Process Safety Management (AI-PSM) is crucial to prevent any tragic incidents and for achieving the Company’s strategic goal -“Our Assets Are Safe and We Know It”.
We work in an industry that involves the operation of processes that contain flammable materials at high temperatures and pressures. When something goes wrong, it can go very wrong; therefore, we cannot allow unintentional or uncontrolled release of hazardous materials via proper Asset Integrity Process Safety management throughout the complete life cycle of the facility.
Good process safety management does not happen by chance and requires broad level visibility and constant active engagement with the workforce. This will be the sixth year that we have brought everyone together to build on everything we have achieved so far and find even better ways to sustain and improve our AI-PSM performance in order to avoid incidents
The theme for this year is: Learning from Incidents
In recent years at PDO we have seen a high no. of process safety incidents which were repeats of past similar incident. This year’s theme is how do improve our learning from incidents and prevent repetition.
The approach will consist of team-based engagement sessions, led by a line manager, supervisor or team leads. All staff and contractors will have the opportunity to get involved in this very important and purposeful conversation.
Experience has shown that conversations between a small group of a maximum of 30 people are more effective, as opposed to large town hall sessions
