Safety Solutions offers an audit of your companies use of VelocityEHS Risk Management

Challenges:

VelocityEHS Risk Management (RM) is a fully customizable toolset, with many different ways to input information for hazard studies, risk assessments, and control assurance. The tool is very simple to set up and get started, however as an implementation grows in size, things can rapidly become more complex.

Optimize your hazard studies and bowties for control assurance

Safety assessment in RM usually starts with building hazard studies and bowties, with control assurance, that is development of performance standards and verification activities for control measures, coming later. It is critical to have bowties and hazard studies set up properly within RM before starting control assurance to optimize the benefits if using the tool.

Safety Solutions has developed several clients instances of Risk Management from the initial hazard identification and risk assessment through to action management, developing performance standards, and setting up verifications. Our experience with the toolset and expertise in process safety allows us to identify gaps in a users Risk Management implementation and help you improve your system to get the most out of Risk Management.

Get the most out of Risk Management with dashboards and reporting

There is a lot of useful information that can be pulled out of Risk Management to help clients track their companies risk profile and safety performance, so much that it can be difficult to know how best to present the right information to different users of a site. It is important to identify key user groups for your company and determine what information they need to effectively manage your risks.

Typical Findings

Risk Management implementations typically start with hazard studies and bowtie risk assessments, with verification implemented later. If the initial hazard studies and bowties aren’t set up correctly, setting up verification within the system can become difficult and in some cases impossible.
