Unavoidably, process safety risks are often managed in different parts of an organization. Consolidating these risks to view their effect on the operational reality of hydrocarbon assets is a real challenge.
What the industry needs is to make sure everyone assesses risk using the same criteria and has a practical understanding of how their decisions directly or indirectly influence risk and, ultimately, process safety performance. By making process safety more operational—ensuring frontline personnel are aware of their roles and responsibilities and are effectively and consistently implementing processes and procedures—we can reduce incidents and improve sustainable production.
What is the reality of risk in the hydrocarbon sector? In this roundtable, senior industry executives discuss what happens when process safety intent meets the reality of operations. The roundtable participants include Greg Cline of the Aberdeen Group, Kelly Keim of ExxonMobil (retired), Mike Neill of Petrotechics, and Jeff Thomas of the Process Improvement Institute.
