17AB (Austin Convention Center)
Process safety management (PSM) audits are “…a fundamental part of an effective PSM program because their purpose is to verify that systems to manage process safety are in place and functioning effectively, and to take corrective action when findings indicate that is warranted." 1 Based on regulatory requirements and/or good industry practice, many thousands of PSM audits have been performed in the global petrochemical and related industries. This session solicits papers which detail experiences with and/or best practices for PSM audits. Examples may include audit procedures/protocols, audit team composition and scheduling, techniques and tools for evaluating management systems (including record reviews, sampling, and interviewing), audit documentation and reports, communication of audit results, tracking/completion of audit recommendations, and similar topics. The goal of this session is to provide session attendees with ideas on how to make their own PSM audits and auditing systems more effective.
