Pipeline Safety Management System: Leadership & Management Commitment

PSMS is not just another program you purchase, read, and place on the shelf until next year. It is a culture of safety and accountability that begins with leaders and managers and works all the way down to employees and contractors. PSMS is not a regulatory requirement that you check off your list as complete either. It is something you do voluntarily because you believe in it – because it’s the right thing to do. Buy-in from leadership and management is the first step toward ensuring that your PSMS program gets off the ground and progresses forward. But, what will motivate leaders and managers to buy in to this cultural change? After all, it’s not a specific regulatory requirement. Leadership and Management Commitment is the first element of a PSMS, so let’s begin with identifying the three key players that can make that element successful.

By Client Request: Breaking Down Task List Management

Managing your task list doesn’t have to be tedious or daunting. At EWN, we are committed to providing clients and the industry with the most intuitive information you can use to manage task lists more effectively. We recently met with Operators across the industry and found several common challenges they’re facing regarding task list management. In this article, we will cover some of these issues plus our solutions and recommendations on how to help manage tasks lists. One of the most common things we found among operators was outdated task lists. Here is the scenario: You have been promoted to manage the company’s OQ (Operator Qualifications) Program. The company’s task list was created by one, two, or even three of your predecessors. The task list has not been touched in several years, and you choose not to make any additional changes. After all, whomever created the task list must have known what they were doing, and since it has worked all this time, why change it? What we found was that new personnel charged with managing the OQ Program were never properly trained on how to manage the existing program or were not informed of changes and decision made to […]
