Enhancing Process Safety Management

January 06, 2022

Safety is key to the responsible delivery of sustainable solutions. Our goals in Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) are zero accidents and zero non-compliance. Our HSSE management framework sets out the policies, standards and processes for safe operations.

For example, our Group Process Safety Standard sets out the minimum requirements for process safety management and provides guidance on compliance. To monitor the effectiveness of our process safety barriers, we adopt both leading and lagging indicators, such as the absence of safety incidents. We also place a strong emphasis on processes that are identified to be of high severity and/or high risk in nature.

In addition to the use of a risk assessment matrix to manage identified risks, we have identified a list of 20 elements deemed integral to a successful Process Safety Management programme. Effective from 2022, every operation is required to apply the relevant elements in their Process Safety Management programme.

To ensure our standards and processes evolve with the changing operating landscape, we regularly review and enhance them for continued effectiveness in keeping all our workers and partners safe and productive.
