    • Principles of Process Safety Leadership Plenary Session 2: Emerging Challenges in Process Industries • Leadership is vital to the effective management of process safety • Leadership must come from the top – the Board. • Directors have to be visible in their support of good process safety • Effective major hazards control requires constant engagement • Directors have to regularly measure and evaluate the performance of the organisation • Being open about performance data is essential. We must habitually share lessons across all major hazards sectors as well as in individual businesses.
    • Constant Unease Plenary Session 2: Emerging Challenges in Process Industries • Never assume the problem is fixed • Ask the hard questions and welcome difficult answers • Ask what could go wrong, don’t assume it won’t go wrong just because it hasn’t yet • Seek assurance, not reassurance
    • Things to Cultivate Plenary Session 2: Emerging Challenges in Process Industries • A chronic sense of unease • Curiosity about bad news as well as good • Responsiveness– a willingness to intervene as soon as indications of failure can be detected • A willingness to seek underlying causes
    • HSE Offshore Key Programme KP1: Hydrocarbon Release Reduction Campaign Plenary Session 2: Emerging Challenges in Process Industries • HSE initiative to reduce the number of “major” and “significant” HCRs by 50% • Considerable HSE engagement with the offshore industry leaders • By 2013 releases were down by 48% • Industry leaders decided in April 2013 that they wanted to commit to reduce HCRs by a further 50% over the next 5 years
    • HSE Offshore Key Programme KP2: Deck and Drilling Operations Plenary Session 2: Emerging Challenges in Process Industries • HSE initiative to reduce unacceptable accident statistics from deck and drilling operations • KP2 identified that failures in the management of lifting ops were found to have significant impact on fatalities and injuries
    • HSE Offshore Key Programme KP3: Asset Integrity Management Plenary Session 2: Emerging Challenges in Process Industries • KP3 objective: to ensure duty holders maintain safety-critical elements (SCEs) • SCEs not adequately maintained • Poor plant condition • Leadership set asset maintenance priorities too low
    • HSE Offshore Key Programme KP4: Ageing & Life Extension Plenary Session 2: Emerging Challenges in Process Industries Ageing Life Extension (ALE) performance • HSE has seen evidence that industry leaders now recognise the importance of ALE • They have reviewed their Asset Integrity Management systems • They are developing long-term plans and putting in place resources to extend the life of their assets. • Importantly, there is evidence this is having an international impact.
