Process Safety Awareness Videos

Improve the conversation with your team about process safety today.

Challenge

There are many touch points with our industry’s activities that can contribute towards preventing loss of containment incidents, and the significant harm that can go with these. We may not all be on the frontline each day, but the actions we take and decisions we make can influence what occurs with our facilities.

Solution 

Develop tools that will enable you and your teams to start, or enhance an existing process safety conversation about the roles we play in keeping hazardous materials contained.

Result

Now Available!

The Working Group has developed a short animated feature which touches on the asset lifecycle, from design through to operation; the supporting supply chains within our industry sectors; and the process from well through pipeline, compressor station and on to an LNG facility.

It is not intended to cover all process safety risks that we face daily, nor does it try to provide an exhaustive list of the barriers that we ensure are in place to prevent loss of containment. However, it does introduce concepts within the narrative that can be expanded upon. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Flammable gas and pressure
  • The potential consequences of getting process safety wrong
  • Inherently safer design, hierarchy of control, Accuracy of engineering information
  • Well control
  • Specification, supply and preservation – and how this impacts the ongoing fitness for service of equipment
  • Construction & commissioning hazards, including around live plant
  • The criticality of flange management
  • Pipeline safety management
  • Safe operating envelopes and abnormal situation management
  • Management of change
  • The importance of training, IT & similar resources to help us understand our how to safely operate and interact with this infrastructure

Launch Pack has been developed to help Safer Together members implement this initiative within their Company.
