Control of Work Software
Know what’s happening, when it’s happening, where it’s happening
and what’s driving the operational risk in real time.
In a constantly changing operating environment, data streams in every second from multiple, often disparate, systems. Functions including Operations, Engineering, Maintenance, and Environment, Health, Safety and Sustainability all have management systems, databases, sensors and human-reported information that must be considered together to make better-informed decisions. With permit to work software, now there’s a solution that can do just that.
Through Sphera’s Control of Work software solution, you have a single unified view of all your asset conditions in real time. This closes the loop between separate management systems and delivers meaningful, actionable insights across the organization. The result is a welcome ability to monitor simultaneously occurring factors throughout your facilities and make sound operational judgments.
Simulate the Major Accident Hazard (MAH) risk impact of work activities, risks and process safety-critical equipment in each area of your asset in real time.
Before starting a shift, know what previously happened, what is happening now and what is likely to happen during upcoming shift periods.
Our control of work software gives operators the tools they need to routinely manage activities and risk in a joined-up way. These capabilities can transform the way they work:
Shift the management of activities from permits to real-time, systemwide control. Strengthen compliance and the work permission process by integrating information from permits, risk assessments and isolations (LOTO).
Use a dynamic process safety barrier model to automatically map all performance deviations, hazardous activities, abnormal conditions, human- and sensor-derived inputs. Simulate in real time the Major Accident Hazard (MAH) risk impact of work activities, risks and process safety-critical equipment in each area of your asset.
Plug into your existing IT and business application ecosystem.
