Any time highly hazardous substances are not properly controlled, there is potential for an accidental release leading to a process safety incident. The failure to manage process safety and the associated consequences is a documented industry issue—one that can lead to a release of harmful substances that have the potential to impact the larger community and an organization’s license to operate.
With a continued focus on compliance requirements and recognition of the consequences resulting from major accidents, prudent companies across the chemical and energy sectors are demonstrating a renewed focus on process safety. This includes improvements in leadership, culture, reliability, and regulatory compliance underpinned with an integrated management system.
Kestrel is helping companies such as these to focus not just on process safety compliance, but on the holistic management of process safety.
Kestrel’s approach focuses on the management of process safety. This approach builds on regulatory compliance to emphasize developing safe, reliable, cost-effective solutions that improve and manage operational risk by:
- Evaluating compliance against process safety regulations/standards and delivering workable gap closure plans
- Providing consulting services and technology solutions to assess process safety culture and organizational competence
- Assisting organizations in the identification of process safety hazards, quantification of risk, and delivery of risk reduction plans
Through the management of process safety, Kestrel provides both consulting services and software solutions to effectively manage the risks associated with process safety.
