OpenPSM® is a cloud based solution allowing users to evaluate management system design and implementation through structured PSM systems auditing.
There’s a new way to manage your company’s Process Safety Management programme
Process safety management is about people, plant and systems, and what they do in real life. How do we get under the skin of what’s happening on site and is it different to what we think it going on? OpenPSM® has been designed to provide a step-by-step approach to assessment of process safety management programmes, with licenses designed for users dealing with either complex multi-site operations or managing a single location.
A solution for in-house teams to take control of process safety management programme development
OpenPSM® has been designed to help companies ensure that their systems and procedures are fit for purpose before drilling down into the detail to look at what’s happening operationally. Users are presented with a customisable dashboard displaying information on maturity levels, actions for improvement, and the actions still to be addressed for each of the process safety management elements assessed.
A structured, methodical approach rooted in best practice guidance
The standard protocol covers 20 elements with over 840 questions to consider, built around plan do check and act, ensuring a focus on continuous improvement. Questions cannot be edited as they are rooted in guidance but can be added to suit individual users needs – and once added they will be automatically incorporated into PSMS reviews and deep dive audits.
Continuous improvement in process safety will be a reality for users
Using our cloud based software, you can map, benchmark and continuously improve your Process Safety Management system. Do those involved in managing and undertaking critical tasks have the required knowledge, skills and experience? Have they been given task specific training?.
