Mitigate Interdependent Risks.
By establishing consistent working practices and conditions, hazardous industry operators can improve their safety performance and prevent incidents. But, permit to work solutions must be fully integrated into Operational Risk Management architectures to produce real value, and that’s where many permit to work solutions fall short.
Sphera’s software combines information on permits, isolations, hazards, maintenance shifts, and SIMOPS to provide a real-time view across an entire facility. The industry 4.0 technology integrates risk analysis across domains and through seamless integration with asset performance management software to deliver a real-time view of the operational reality and the ability to mitigate any anticipated operational risks through the work permissions process. Information about asset health, mechanical integrity. and equipment-related risk are accounted for in the context of potentially hazardous work activity. It helps ensure maintenance work such as inspections, repairs, and preventative maintenance are executed after all safety measures are in place – whether it be a LOTO process, a hot work or fire protection measure, safe confined space entry, and more, to ensure a safe working environment exists throughout the job.
With Sphera’s Industrial Connected Worker Mobility app, field operations have anywhere access to the tools they need, so that they know if there are any risks or hazards associated with their work that could impact their performance or safety, or that of others in the same area. They can manage JHAs, verify isolations and LOTO, identify hazards, manage work activities and actions, and more. Supervisors and operational authorities can know when and where work is happening on the asset and if any potential conflicts exist.
