Spotlight: Working toward continuous improvement of process safety

The team interviewed renowned process safety experts in industry, government and academia to understand best practices. Through this thorough evaluation, we uncovered things that we do well and areas where we can improve, including the following opportunities: 

  • Sharpening our focus on process safety systems within our Operational Integrity Management System 
  • Increasing our focus on higher-potential consequence scenarios and critical safeguards 
  • Equipping our people to precisely execute critical safety activities
  • Testing the effectiveness of our process safety practices and increasing learning across the corporation

We are working to incorporate these findings into our operations to further enhance our approach to managing process safety.
