Pillar 2 (Risk Based Process Safety) – Compliance with Standards
Standards is a system to identify, develop, acquire, evaluate, disseminate, and provide access to applicable standards, codes, regulations, and laws that affect Process Safety.
The standards system addresses both internal and external standards; national and international codes and standards; and local/state regulations and laws.
The system makes this information easily and quickly accessible to potential users.
The standards system interacts in some fashion with every RBPS management system element. Knowledge of and conformance to standards helps a company:
- Operate and maintain a safe facility;
- Consistently implement Process Safety practices; and
- Minimise legal liability.
The standards system also forms the basis of an audit programme to determine management system conformance.
