Process Safety Management Software

Every day many industries face the risk of incidents due to unexpected releases of toxic, reactive, or flammable liquids and gases in processes involving highly hazardous chemicals. Companies live with the potential for an accidental release and the disastrous consequences that come with it.

As a result of this risk, and to strengthen occupational safety and health, OSHA issued the Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals standard (29 CFR 1910.119), which contains requirements for the management of hazards associated with processes using highly hazardous chemicals. In addition, the EU’s Seveso III Directive and the UK’s Control of Major Accident Hazards regulations (COMAH) also include similar requirements for Process Safety Management.

But there is more to Process Safety Management (PSM) than regulatory compliance. Having an effective PSM system in place also leads to improvements in business operations. By enabling safe and reliable operations, organizations embark on a path to greater operational resilience.

Enablon’s solution for Process Safety Management (PSM) leverages a single, unique platform to offer a set of integrated applications addressing the 14 elements of PSM defined by OSHA.

The Enablon Process Safety Management (PSM) solution addresses all PSM needs through a single, integrated platform.
