What is difference between Process Safety & Personal Safety?
How can you contribute in making your work place safe?
How your routine activity can prevent Process Safety Incident?
These are few of the questions commonly asked in industries now-a-days. During the past decade, industries have made tremendous efforts in developing robust and effective systems in Health, Safety & Environment, now it is call of the day to focus on Process Safety as well. Process safety differs from personnel safety and has to be dealt differently. Personnel safety deals with injuries that a worker can suffer while doing his job, such as burns, cuts, strains, and fume exposure, while process safety starts with failure of an equipment or system to perform its intended function, thus leading to catastrophic fires, explosions, and toxic releases. Process safety incidents have the potential to kill or injure many workers and even neighbors of the facility and can even lead to long term or permanent shut down of a processing facility.
Process safety leadership and culture are recognized as key factors for effective process safety management implementation. Everyone working in any industry should enhance awareness of his team & himself towards Process Safety and to initiate a drive towards developing Process Safety Culture within organizations whereby mitigation & elimination of potential hazards is embedded in the attitude of every individual.
