Management Of Change (MOC) is the element for which all other “foundation” elements of Process Safety Management (PSM) are implemented. It is the element that controls introduction of new risk. Recognizing change, analyzing the risk of each change, and handling small changes efficiently are just some of the barriers that managers face with MOC implementation. This 2-day workshop explores proven strategies for implementing a workable MOC system and customized approaches to fit your company’s culture.
This workshop is designed for technical managers and supervisors, SH&E professionals, quality control managers and staff, process engineers, PSM coordinators, and most other operation, maintenance, reliability, and quality staff who are involved with designing, implementing, tracking, and evaluating MOC programs
- What PSSR is and how it works and how it can be combined with MOC and mechanical integrity systems
- How to realistically control both small and large changes, minimizing employees’ needs to bypass the system
- Simple frameworks for identifying and analyzing risks associated with a recommended change to help ensure the minimum losses to the company
- Training needs and requirements for all levels of the organization necessary to make managing change a functional system
- How to integrate all company systems for managing specific functional changes into one MOC system to handle PSM, SH&E, quality control, reliability, and productivity changes; and learn why this integration is so important
Many Management Of Change (MOC) programs that were developed to meet Process Safety Management (PSM) requirements are overly burdensome and often ineffective as a result. The focus of this workshop is on effectiveness and efficiency. The workshop will help you to (1) recognize change and common change initiators, (2) ensure that risks are understood, (3) evaluate controls to manage risk, and (4) follow through to ensure that changes are implemented as intended. The workshop emphasizes hazard review techniques commonly used to evaluate changes. It also includes sections on improving existing programs for MOC and pre-startup safety review (PSSR).
