IOGP Report 456
Learn how to develop a framework for managing the integrity of operating systems
As part of continuing efforts to prevent major accidents, OGP has published this recommended practice that focuses on the practical implementation of a Key Performance Indicators System linked to establishing and reporting of leading and lagging indicators. The aim: to improve process safety.
This new publication complements Asset Integrity – the key to managing major accidents (OGP Report No. 415, December 2008), which introduced the concept of asset integrity and its management. The recommended practice report gives readers the tools to develop a framework for managing the integrity of their operating systems.
For many years OGP has collected health and safety data. In tandem with those efforts, in 2011 the Association started to gather preliminary process safety data as well. Publication of this new document will further inform member companies wanting to participate in this data collection and also provide a basis for industry-wide reporting. The establishment of a Process Safety Subcommittee will accompany the developing data collection exercise and accelerate OGP’s continued efforts in this area.
