Commitment to process safety

Specific tools for process safety assessment

Chilworth will assess a company's level of Commitment to Process Safety by employing specific tools including:

a)    Assessment questionnaires
b)    Employee behavioral assessments and profiling
c)    Interviews
d)    Site visits

Assessment results will be presented to the client in the form of measurable parameters, and will consider: 

  • Top management's commitment towards safety
  • Clarity of communication relating to process safety and other management requirements
  • That a company has clear Roles and Responsibilities in the PSM arena
  • Its attitude to PSM systems
  • Its ability to learn from past experience
  • The effectiveness of its training policies
  • The behavior of employees to  PSM systems

The assessment leads a way forward to improve safety culture by identifying Process Safety Leaders for each of the safety culture element and make them responsible and accountable for its improvement by  Measures', 'Recognition', and 'Improvement Processes'.

Chilworth can also assist your company in:

  • Defining roles and responsibilities
  • Defining leading and lagging indicators for individuals and organization.
  • Providing training in different areas of process safety engineering and process safety management as required.
  • Monitoring of performance.
  • Focusing on human factors and ergonomics which contribute to unsafe behaviors and in turn accidents.
