This book combines the synergies between performance improvement systems to help ensure safe and reliable operations, streamline procedures and cross-system auditing, and supporting regulatory and corporate compliance requirements. Many metrics are common to more than one area, such that a well-designed and implemented integrated management system will reduce the load on the Process Safety, SHE, Security and Quality groups, and improve manufacturing efficiency and customer satisfaction. Systems to improve performance include: process safety; traditional safety, health and environment; and, product quality. Chapters include: Integrating Framework; Securing Support & Preparing for Implementation; Establishing Common Risk Management Systems – How to Integrate PSM into Other EH; Testing Implementation Approach; Developing and Agreeing on Metrics; Management Review; Tracking Integration Progress and Measuring Performance; Continuous Improvement; Communication of Results to Different Stakeholders; Case Studies; and Examples for Industry

Guidelines for Risk Based Process Safety provides guidelines for industries that manufacture, consume, or handle chemicals, by focusing on new ways to design, correct, or improve process safety management practices. This new framework for thinking about process safety builds upon the original process safety management ideas published in the early 1990s, integrates industry lessons learned over the intervening years, utilizes applicable "total quality" principles (i.e., plan, do, check, act), and organizes it in a way that will be useful to all organizations - even those with relatively lower hazard activities - throughout the life-cycle of a company.

The Department of Defense, through the Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives program, is currently in the process of constructing two full-scale pilot plants at the Pueblo Chemical Depot in Colorado and the Blue Grass Army Depot in Kentucky to destroy the last two remaining inventories of chemical weapons in the U.S. stockpile. These two storage sites together account for about 10 percent of the original U.S. chemical agent stockpile that is in the process of being destroyed in accordance with the international Chemical Weapons Convention treaty. Unlike their predecessors, these facilities will use neutralization technologies to destroy agents contained within rockets, projectiles, and mortar rounds, requiring the use of specially designed equipment. As part of its focus on safe operation of the planned facilities, the Program Manager for Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives asked the National Research Council (NRC) to conduct a study to offer guidance on the application of process safety metrics at the Pueblo Chemical Depot and Blue Grass Army Depot. Process safety is a disciplined framework for managing the integrity of operating systems, processes and personnel handling hazardous substances, and operations by applying good design principles, engineering, and operating practices. Process Safety Metrics at the Blue Grass and Pueblo Chemical Agent Destruction Pilot Plants discusses the use of leading and lagging process safety metrics that could provide feedback on the effectiveness of controls to mitigate risks and minimize consequences of potential incidents. The book makes several recommendations that will facilitate the development and application of process safety metrics at both sites.

Process safety management (PSM) systems are only as effective as the day-to-day ability of the organization to rigorously execute system requirements correctly every time. The failure of just one person in completing a job task correctly just one time can unfortunately lead to serious injuries and potentially catastrophic incidents. In fact, the design, implementation, and daily execution of PSM systems are all dependent on workers at all levels in the organization doing their job tasks correctly every time. High levels of Operational Discipline, therefore, help ensure strong PSM performance and overall operational excellence. This book details management practices which help ensure rigor in executing process safety programs in order to prevent major accidents.

Explains how to implement the best safety practices and why they work Reviews from the Third Edition "An excellent piece of work." —Safety Health Practitioner (SHP) "A useful fountain of knowledge." —Quality World "This is a book to be read now for its educational value and also to be kept on the shelf for easy future reference." —Chemistry International The Fourth Edition of On the Practice of Safety makes it possible for readers to master all the core subjects and practices that today's safety professionals need to know in order to provide optimal protection for their organizations' property and personnel. Like the previous editions, each chapter is a self-contained unit, making it easy for readers to focus on select topics of interest. Thoroughly revised and updated, this Fourth Edition reflects the latest research and safety practice standards. For example, author Fred Manuele has revised the design chapters to reflect the recently adopted American National Standard on Prevention through Design. In addition, readers will find new chapters dedicated to: Management of change and pre-job planning Indirect-to-direct accident cost ratios Leading and lagging indicators Opportunities for safety professionals to apply lean concepts Role of safety professionals in implementing sustainability Financial management concepts and practices that safety professionals should know Many chapters are highly thought-provoking, questioning long-accepted concepts in the interest of advancing and improving the professional practice of safety. Acclaimed by both students and instructors, On the Practice of Safety is a core textbook for both undergraduate and graduate degree programs in safety. Safety professionals should also refer to the text in order to update and improve their safety skills and knowledge.
