Module 14 - Monitoring and Measuring Performance is part of the full Process Safety Management eLearning package, which provides an integrated overview of the 20 elements in 15 modular presentations sessions which are each 45 minutes in length.

This module can be undertaken as an individual module or altogether as a package on the EI’s learning management system, with recorded presentations and exercises taught by a leading expert in process safety and a former deputy director of the UK Health & Safety Executive. Learning Objectives:
Key Points to cover:

• Purpose: To ensure that information and intelligence is provided to confirm that the process safety management system is capable of providing the right level of risk reduction in a sustained way over the lifetime of the facility. To provide feedback on deficiencies and deterioration in control and mitigation measure in a timely manner to allow for problems to be fixed and lessons applied across the whole business. To facilitate appropriate monitoring and scrutiny be senior executives, the board and stakeholders (including regulators) that risks are being adequately controlled. To inform strategic priorities and improvement programs.

• Learning Points:
o Identifying vulnerabilities in process safety management systems
o Types of performance monitoring and their respective strengths and weaknesses
 Incident investigation
 Auditing
 KPIs
o Senior managers and key decision makers are the target audience for performance data so information has to be tailored to their needs and understanding
o Incident investigation based on identification and reporting of process safety incidents and not simply lost time incidents and accidents
o Purpose of incident investigation to discover which aspect of process safety management system failed or was inadequate – which barrier failed. Investigation should not seek to apportion blame
o Auditing is a systematic check that all the elements of a process safety management system are in place and capable of delivering their specified outcomes – so should be outcome focussed
o Period audits by person independent to the local facility provides more opportunity for learning
o Audits should not be blindly repeated if the previous outstanding actions have not been cleared
o KPIs measure the functioning of each component of the process safety management system
 Lagging indicators measure outcomes (not just incidents) and should focus on operating parameters and asset management
 Leading indicators measure the performance of key inputs which are essential to deliver the desired outcome
o All sources of performance information should be focussed on the same set of issues and used to detect as early as possible when systems have started to fail
o Information and intelligence from performance management should be routinely provided to the facility senior management team so that risk-based decisions can be made
