Challenge & Solution

Proper Prior Planning

How do you get a team of people to focus at a high level, and then maintain it for as long as needed?

As the person responsible for managing critical changes and hazardous processes, you have little room for error. It is up to you to critically assess possible consequences before implementation. And if a change (e.g., adding or removing hardware, changing operating procedures, etc.) has the potential to cause operational inefficiencies, equipment failure, or worse — a catastrophic event or fatalities, it falls on you to control and reduce risks to quality, safety, health, and the environment.

For those in highly process-oriented industries like oil and gas, MOC is an important tool in helping you identify and track all of the required steps and approvals necessary for change work orders. In processes where highly hazardous chemicals (or chemicals in great quantities) are present, MOC is not just a nice to have; it is a regulatory compliance requirement as outlined by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Seveso III Directive, Major Hazard Facility obligations under WHS Regulations, and OHSA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) rule.

Without a clear workflow and full accounting of the associated risks, you leave your employees and company vulnerable to inconsistencies, errors and accidents. Yet, for large companies with complex processes, monitoring change requests companywide is a difficult task. It would be one thing if you could do it all yourself, but the nature of these changes usually requires the careful coordination and oversight of many people and tasks. Your people must know their responsibilities and meet their obligations, every time.

Trying to manage MOC via a paper system, with spreadsheets, or even a homegrown EHS solution, can make a complex task even harder; especially for companies with facilitates in multiple locations. You end up wasting time and energy on tasks that should be automated, like compiling reports and sending emails about missed deadlines. It takes you away from your real job — strategically advancing your EHS and ESG goals.

The Simple Solution

VelocityEHS MOC capabilities are designed to streamline the change processes with comprehensive workflow support and by maintaining real-time information. Our cloud solution helps you efficiently track each stage of the change process, and increase accountability through escalating email notification when deadlines approach or are missed. And the single platform access makes the information easily accessible to all relevant roles in the company, from operations through engineering and maintenance, to the Plant Manager.

When you’re faced with complex process safety management challenges, you’ll appreciate the simplicity of the VelocityEHS approach even more. You have enough on your plate without having to spend time coaxing a clunky, complicated MOC system to provide the control and visibility your role requires. We strive to understand your problems and to help you solve them in the simplest, most direct way possible. And if you’re currently managing your processes with a paper system or spreadsheets, you’ll be amazed at how much pressure an effective cloud solution can take off, giving you the freedom to focus on your critical tasks. It’s one reason VelocityEHS is the industry leader with more than 10 million users.

There are no individual licenses required for the software, making it easy to deploy across your entire organization. Our mobile-optimized solution increases company-wide accountability, providing you with the ability to easily request, review and approve changes with real-time information. By reducing operational change complexity, our MOC capabilities help you better identify risks, keep employees safe, and remain in compliance in the simplest, fastest, and most-efficient way possible.
