Manage the Risk of Planned Maintenance Activities

Sphera’s Activity Risk Management changes the equation. As a critical add-on for Sphera’s Integrated Operations Management (IOM) w/Smart PTW, Activity Risk Management allows you to visualize and manage the Major Accident Hazard (MAH) cumulative risk for all activities associated with permitted and operations activity against a dynamic process safety barrier model. This provides a holistic and common means of balancing risk against production at all levels of the operation.

Make better, more-informed decisions driving effective operational performance

Sphera’s Operational Risk Management delivers a single, shared view of the operational reality. It arms everyone with the right information, at the right time, so they can make more-informed, effective operational decisions. As part of the solution, Activity Risk Management is the first connected, digital offering of its kind. It can seamlessly connect the risk impact of the work your frontline teams are doing to its impact on the operational reality.

Sphera’s Activity Risk Management provides an entirely new level of visibility. It allows teams to understand how the activity to be performed impacts dynamic process safety barriers and how the state of the barriers may impact the activity. This joined-up view of the operational reality helps everyone make better operational decisions.

Activity risk can be viewed in time, location and in a dynamic process safety barrier model with drill-down capabilities to quickly understand what’s driving risk. With Sphera's optional Major Accident Hazard (MAH) risk capabilities, you can understand how all activity risk impacts barriers leading to a specific major hazard event (e.g. fire & explosion).

With Sphera you can make better, joined-up operational decisions regarding activity to proactively mitigate operational risk and optimize the schedule based on risk.
