The consequences of poor operations management can be devastating. According to the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM), more than 40 percent of plant incidents occur during start-up, shutdown and shift handover periods. This is even more alarming when you realise accidents are preventable with a more reliable process. Major disasters, including Deepwater Horizon, are often caused by human error or poor logbook keeping. Any organisation looking to eliminate unnecessary cost from its business must look to mitigate as much risk as possible, and one way is to digitise your operations management.
At the same time, operations personnel should not have to question their safety due to poor handover from the shift activities; their friends and family are counting on them to get home safely. Using paper forms and spreadsheets to document shift activities leads to unnecessary risks at already complex plants. Driving “Shift Excellence” can significantly improve shift activities and ultimately reduce risk.
From the most earth-shattering accidents to untimely shut downs and deterioration, your workers are a key defense against damage. Digitising operations management helps equip workers with the ability to spot and avoid disaster before it happens.
