Culture, technology and responsibility

As many companies champion on business transformation and digitilisation, new programmes and initiatives are being introduced to maintain competitiveness and stay relevant. Companies are increasing their leverage on technologies and adapting new ecosystems associated with automation and IoT ('internet of things') to drive efficiency. Against this backdrop, process safety culture is reshaping as technology is absorbed into the day to day plant operations.

How will techno-operations influence the way we think and act about safety? Or will our safety culture defy a technology based approach to safety management?

Have companies moved into this new techno-operations era with sufficient vigilance and continued to address the underlying root causes of many major accident events?

Safety is an integral part of the process industry and it is our responsibility at every level within our organisation. Our core values will continue to drive our process safety culture and safety will remain at the top of leadership agenda.
