Operational Risk Management Pages

Frontline operations is where all operational risk and human interactions with your asset occurs

Sphera’s Operations Logbook & Shift Handover goes beyond traditional solutions. It’s the industry’s first integrated application that brings together all operational activities and their associated risks with all other activities and risks occurring on the plant. And with its integrated planning capabilities, it provides a clear look-ahead for the next few shift periods. This provides a shared, common view of the operational reality which allows teams to better plan, manage, and execute work activities scheduled to take place on the plant, at any given time.

As Sphera’s Operational Risk Management (ORM) is a connected, digital solution, at shift end, handover document can be automatically created from the automatic logbook and ongoing manual observations. This reduces operator workload and ensures better quality data is provided to support the handover. This frees up more time for face-to-face discussions and ensures important details are not missed.

Manage the big picture

ORM 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, Operations Logbook & Shift Handover is the first connected, digital offering of its kind. It can seamlessly connect your operational systems, data, and business processes to your operational reality.

Sphera’s Operations Logbook & Shift Handover software solution enables you to bring all operational activities and their associated risks into a single, central, shared location. See how all activities come together. A common view of the operational reality enables better planning, management, and execution of all work activities. Improved communication and collaboration is a result of Sphera’s ability to easily share information between shift teams and cross-functional teams, including: Operations, Maintenance, HSE, Engineering, and Planning.

Now work teams can see how their activities can potentially interact with others happening on the plant in terms of risk and SIMOPS. Importantly, it gives teams visibility into something they’ve have never had before: a clear understanding of operations’ priorities and their ability to support planned and unplanned activities on the plant.

Sphera’s shift handover enables clear and consistent communications between shift teams, providing a view of the work events on the shift, the status of the plant – with an emphasis on risk, and a real-time view of the next few shift periods. It also provides a unique 3-day look-ahead for planned activities - which helps dayshift and nightshift teams seamlessly work together to deliver a credible plan. This allows oncoming shift teams to be better informed and more proactive – leading to increased uptime, fewer incidents, and better utilization of resources.
