Process Safety Management


SSI has a proven track record of assisting with risk mitigation and is committed to providing our clients solutions to meet their risk assessment and risk management objectives. Our engineers all have backgrounds as plant engineers in operating facilities and can assist clients with hazard analyses, implementation of management systems, audits, and creation of policy level or operational level procedures. Actual operating plant experience coupled with continuous training on Process Safety Management regulations, codes, and standards gives us exceptional insight into every aspect of a Process Safety Management covered facility.

This insight ensures that SSI facilitators, scribes, and auditors can efficiently and effectively provide Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) services to ensure your facility is in full compliance with the OSHA PSM, 29 CFR 1910.119, and EPA RMP, 40 CFR 68, regulations.

Safety Instrument Level consulting services are performed in compliance with IEC 61508/61511, API 14C, ANSI/ISA 84.00.01-2004, and OLF 70 standards.

We have successfully performed PHAs for projects ranging in value from $6 billion to less than $10,000 for the refining and chemical industry throughout the U.S. We also assist clients with compliance audits, including OSHA National Emphasis Program assessments, Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Selection Analyses, and Layers of Protection Analyses (LOPA).

These services are performed using Dyadem’s PHAPro and SIS-Tech’s SIL-SOLVER software, however SSI can utilize the client's in-house programs if requested.
