You are an Executive or Senior Manager. Your company has made major investments into Process Safety systems such as Management of Change, Risk Identification, Mechanical Integrity, etc. These systems are audited regularly and findings are pursued and closed. You may have placed process safety coordinators into the organization to insure that process safety systems receive attention and support. However, it is important to examine the role you personally have in leading the organization to bottom line process safety results – and the role that each of your reports should have. What are the routine activities where your participation can make a difference? What questions and areas of focus are appropriate for your position? Do you understand why some companies are successful in translating their resource commitments into process safety performance, while others are not?
This interactive course will examine the role that culture plays in catastrophic events, the critical role you have personally in establishing culture, and what good culture for Process Safety looks like. Review real-world accident case studies which outline the major threat that comes from normalization of deviation and how the culture which you establish can minimize that threat. Discuss the importance of having managers at every level who understand the high–consequence events which could occur in their area and also the barriers which they must ensure are maintained at high-integrity. The course will introduce you to best-practices in industry for maintaining critical process safety competencies in managers and leaders even though they rotate through assignments at a high frequency, take you through a discussion of how to select meaningful metrics to guide the program, and outline the importance of learning from organizational near misses and how your personal engagement in that process is critical. Leave with an understanding of key investments available to your organization which can bring significant returns to the bottom line via increased same-plant productions capacities, raw material and energy efficiencies, and plant reliability – investments which, at the same time, decrease risk for catastrophic events.
