For oil and gas executives, the need for a proven path to process safety has never been greater. At the same time, increasingly complex operations, rising production costs, decreasing refining margins, heightened regulatory scrutiny, aging infrastructure and a lack of skilled workers are generating more challenges than ever. As economic realities are compelling companies to become more competitive by reducing costs and improving performance, real competitive advantage lies in the ability to optimise plant safety while simultaneously enhancing operational productivity.

Based on the “Swiss Cheese Model” stipulating that several barriers must fail to allow a hazard to escalate into a disaster, this webinar illustrates a practice-oriented approach to enhancing plant safety through the use of system monitoring, process integration, centralised data-driven intelligence, task automation and mobile applications.

Using a real-life scenario of events, the webcast illustrates how companies can adapt their operations in order to be able to assess the actual risk of individual hazardous events in near real-time, in three main steps:

Step 1
– Understanding the Basis of Safety

Step 2 – Independent Adoption of Technology

Step 3 – Knowing Your Actual Process Safety Risk

  • Enhance plant safety and reliability, and  reduce safety incidents
