This supplement document provides an example of the tasks and activities that could be undertaken to achieve the relevant level of competence in the range of competency topics defined in ISC Process Safety Competency Guidance Edition 2.
Lead Process Safety Metrics
The ISC has released its first guidance on lead process safety metrics. This document defines a list of agreed and defined lead process safety metrics.
Lead Process Safety Metrics - supplementary guide - Pressure Relief Device (PRD) - design and operational performance requirements
This supplement document is the first in a series of guidance documents that will focus on providing more clarity on the type of failures/events to be included in your company's metrics and will also aid in the goal of capturing similar data across companies and across industries. This will allow for benchmarking and identification of good practice.
