National Safety Council's Safety Management System

 
SHE (Safety, Health & Environment) Performance Measurement & Monitoring

The overall aim of the performance measurement is to equip Company with a system that will permit reliable and consistent measurement of health, safety & environmental achievement, against agreed Key Performance Indicators that would reflect the Company's business objectives, business planning process, internal performance targets, and wider industry performance.

In addition, it would incorporate appropriate statistical analysis capability to permit the evaluation of trends in performance, to permit future safety, health & environment efforts to be targeted effectively. Such a system would facilitate benchmarking both between individual facilities and also external benchmarking.

It is essential that the detailed objectives meet the requirements of all stakeholders within the SHE Management System and can form the basis for a program of continual improvement.

The specific deliverables will be:
  • A critical assessment of the current position with regard to SH & E performance.
  • Recommended performance measures, including both lead and lag indicators so that not only historic performance but also planned progress can be measured.
  • A management process by which targets can be set for these performance measures and by which achievement of these measures can be evaluated.
  • Reporting standards to enable progress against these targets to be measured on and on-going basis. We would propose that this should be an IT based system to ensure the maximum consistency of reporting across all facilities.
  • Appropriate documentation for the capture & dissemination of the performance information.
  • Selection and incorporation of appropriate statistical software to allow trends to be identified and the reliability of the predictions to be estimated.
  • A change management programme to facilitate the introduction of the new measurement regime. This would incorporate:
    • Action planning workshops for the major stakeholders
    • Training workshops for the HSE team members
    • A training program for line managers & supervisors who may have responsibility for entering and reviewing data
  • A review to evaluate progress of the new performance measurement system and its acceptance within the organization
Detail scope of the services will be determined at the time of placing order.

Hazard Identification & Assessment
Ensuring a safe environment requires that the hazards of hardware and operations are systematically identified, evaluated and controlled. Structured techniques are available to recognize and quantify the risks in plant design and the workplace, which could potentially damage the business.
 
Examples of Structured Techniques which can be applied:
  • HAZOP / HAZID Study
  • Risk Recognition / Risk Assessment
  • Environmental Impact Assessment

Risk & Reliability Analysis (QRA)
By themselves, design codes and rules of thumb are no longer adequate to satisfy regulators that optimal safety decisions have been made and also do not satisfy business managers that safety investment is correctly appropriated. Quantitative techniques are increasingly used to supplement experienced judgment to identify key areas of concern and provide opportunities for effective cost reduction.
 
Examples of Quantitative Techniques which can be applied:
  • Fire & Explosion Modeling
  • Risk Assessments
  • Failure Mode & Effect Analysis
  • Plant Availability Modeling
  • Instrument Loop Integrity
  • Environmental Risk Analysis

Hazard and Operability (HAZOP)

Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) Study. We provide development and implementation of HAZOP studies for new and current facilities. This typically involves engineering and operational assessment of a plant with a view to design out potential hazards and ensuring productive and safe operation.

The Hazard and Operability study (HAZOP) is a structured examination procedure used to identify all possible deviations from the way in which a design is expected to work and to identify all the hazards associated with these deviations. Where deviations arise that result in hazards, actions are generated which require design engineers to review and suggest solutions to either remove the hazard or reduce its risk to an acceptable level. Sovrang Team has significant experience in leading and participating in HAZOP studies for various types of manufacturing processes. We can organize and lead a HAZOP study or participate in an existing HAZOP study as an outside expert with significant operations experience.

Risk Assessment  

Having analyzed the risk contributors at different locations, the next step is to identify recommendations that result in Risk reduction where it is unacceptable. This activity could involve a decision as to whether to build a bund wall around a vessel resulting in a 14% risk reduction or whether buying a SDV giving a risk reduction benefit of 12%. Cost benefit analysis is carried out and the optimum recommendations worked out.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Studies

Sustainable development is currently receiving global attention. This trend is likely to increase with sustainability reporting and sustainability indices growing in importance with investors. The environmental performance of a company forms an important part of sustainability reporting.  By using assessment tools such as environmental impact assessments (EIA's), the sustainability of any company's strategies and projects can be assessed.

There are many activities for which Local country law requires an EIA. The EIA process is however generally not well understood by industry. Problems often arise when a project requiring an EIA makes 'business sense' but cannot be implemented before the relevant environmental authority issues an authorization.

We develop a formal process to predict the environmental consequences of human development activities and plan mitigation measures to reduce adverse effects and to obtain the approvals from the concerned authorities.
