ASM Consortium Releases Abnormal Procedural Guidelines
Written and developed by the ASM Consortium, a group of leading companies and universities, the publication is a compilation of field-proven end-user philosophies, processes and best practices identified by subject matter experts. The research details how well-designed procedures can help plant operators reduce the incidence of abnormal situations through improved awareness and consistency of execution. It provides guidance for developing a culture around procedure management that includes procedure development practices, management of change, operator training, and metrics for continuous improvement.
These guidelines are designed to help manufacturers comply with requirements such as OSHAs Process Safety Management Regulations pertaining to operating procedures.
