Why is the Safety Management System Important?

Process Safety Management is a set of systematic analytical methods used to control hazardous chemicals. Process Safety Management practices help companies manage process safety risks as well as increase productivity and business optimization.

Elements of Process Safety Management

Process Safety Management can be designed in different element structures. The most important of these are listed below:

  • Seveso Directive Safety Management System Model with 7 elements in force in our country,
  • 14-element OSHA PSM Model,
  • 20-element CCPS RBPS (Risk Based Process Safety) Model

The selection of the model that complies with the operational dynamics and compliance with the legislation is one of the most important points in Process Safety Management.

Process Safety Management Model

Management systems are the method of controlling the processes by regulating the application principles. The Process Safety Management System is a system developed to control the risks posed by dangerous operations such as production, storage and transportation. Directive 96/82 / EC has been made compulsory by the European Union in lower and upper level Seveso establishments. In our country, it is compulsory at lower and upper level facilities within the scope of Regulation on Prevention and Mitigation of Major Industrial Accidents published in the Official Gazette dated 30 December 2013 and numbered 28867.

Process Safety Management System should be integrated with the existing management systems of the organizations. In this way, the efficiency of the management system will be increased and adapted to the culture of the company. With this system, the elements listed below will be controlled by a management system.

  • Organization and Personnel
  • Determination and Evaluation of Major Accidents
  • Operational Control
  • Change Management
  • Planning for Emergencies
  • Performance Monitoring
  • Review and Audit

Among the elements of the Safety Management System, human errors are the most important factor that will affect the frequency of major industrial accidents. It is important to check the most frequent occurrences of human errors for the control of major industrial accident frequencies. Change management and maintenance operations are the main activities affected by human errors. Controlling the following factors will mean controlling the safety levels of the organizations as a result of process safety studies.

  • Safety Culture and Quantification of Human Factors,
  • Maintenance Management and Maintenance Applications Optimization,
  • Change Management Applications,
  • Experienced Accident Research

The effectiveness of the Safety Management System will help prevent all accidents within the company and prevent loss of resources. Integrating the process safety management system to be installed in the facilities with the other management systems implemented will mean the establishment of an integrated system away from the clumsiness by placing the whole process on the safety base. Making the safety management system established with internal and external inspections operational will bring continuous improvement.
