Create a real time PSM database using OpenPSM®
Our cloud-based software provides a unique framework that allows you to log every aspect of your company’s Process Safety Management programme. At any given time, you will have a live snapshot of key risk controls, strengths and weaknesses, and actions that can be managed using an integrated action management and reporting system.
A built-in maturity model, linked to recognised guidance, ensures your PSM system continually evolves, to provide ever-more effective control over major accident hazards, and a sound basis for benchmarking and reporting on key ESG and Responsible Care issues for your business.
Get expert help on programme design
We can carry out an independent review of the design and implementation of your existing audit programme to identify relative strengths and weaknesses versus internationally recognised good practice guidance. We will consider the audit criteria, audit scope, sampling methods, audit frequencies, team competencies, reporting requirements and follow-up processes employed for the range of operations, hazards, and risks.
We will then work with you to develop a new or revised programme for ongoing systematic assessment of the effectiveness and suitability of your process safety management system, a key requirement under COMAH.
Not sure where to start?

OpenPSM is a simple SaaS product, built around internationally recognised good practice guidance
OpenPSM allows operators to easily review and manage their own PSM programmes. OpenPSM has been designed to help companies ensure that the systems and procedures are fit for purpose before drilling down into the detail to look at what’s happening on site. Using a structured approach, it enables users to assess their management systems against best practice guidance, then conduct deep dive audits, to see how well site behaviour reflects that intended within the systems.
Create a real time PSM database
OpenPSM helps embed key aspects of good major hazard leadership within the culture of your business. Relevant staff will undertake audits which build the big picture, so the team are actively responsible for safety in their respective workplaces. Peer reviews allow comparisons between sites to share learnings. OpenPSM also boosts stakeholder understanding of performance against risk-based goalsetting legislation.
Helping you demonstrate commitment to safety
All COMAH sites must have an effective Major Accident Prevention Policy in place. More than that, the policy must be seen to be robust and workable. OpenPSM provides the data required to help you do that. At any given time, you can provide evidence to show underpinning systems and procedures meet corporate and regulatory requirements.
