Solutions by area of excellence:
Compliance and Reporting
In order to protect their employees, communities, and financial safety, organizations around the world adhere to regulations and follow industry standards in the conduct of their operations.
The need to maintain and report on these compliance efforts is acutely realized in those industries involved in the processing and transportation of hydrocarbons and other highly hazardous chemicals, where meeting regulatory requirements is a must-do for permission to operate. However, these industries also understand that making compliance activities visible throughout the organization helps to align good operating practices with organizational financial goals.
The following list includes only a sample of the regulations and industry standards under which organizations operate:
Occupational Safety and Health Standards, for instance the U.S. OSHA 1910.119 Process safety management of highly hazardous chemicals (the “OSHA PSM Standard”)
Section 112(r) of the U.S. Clean Air Act amendments
The U.S. EPA Risk Management Plan rule (EPA RMP)
API RP 75 Recommended Practice for Development of a Safety and Environmental Management Program for Offshore Operations and Facilities
ISO 14001 Environmental management systems
ISO 45001 Occupational health and safety management systems, which is expected to replace OHSAS 18001 and various other standards in February 2018
ISO 9001 Quality management systems
Responsible Care, a global commitment made by the world’s chemical industry participants
Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
Various guidelines for Operational Risk Management programs
Internally, organizations develop and adhere to their own engineering guidelines and practices such as:
Due to the compounding complexity of all these requirements, organizations desperately need comprehensive monitoring and reporting tools with which they can gauge their compliance efforts and efficiently generate reports.
VisiumKMS leads the O&G and chemical industries in helping organizations report compliance to PSM, ORM, and EHS requirements by enforcing standard workflows and checklists, and producing compliance reports at the click of a button.
Built as one integrated solution rather than as separate programs, VisiumKMS maintains all of your compliance information in one system. You no longer need to transfer files between separate applications to connect your regulated activities.
Maintain and Report Compliance
VisiumKMS was built by process safety experts for use by process safety organizations. Follow the industry’s best Management of Change and recommendation workflows to ensure compliance, and then demonstrate the results with one-click-print reports and dashboards.
Track Recurring Requirements
Compliance involves several recurring activities such as scheduled reports and periodic inspections. Manage the scheduling and automatic notification of these and all other recurring activities through the VisiumKMS activities and notification features.
VisiumKMS helps you remain compliant to regulations by providing best-in-class, standardized workflows. It also provides the tools to build custom workflows when you need to implement your own general practice or engineering guidance.
High-performing organizations use the integrated modules in VisiumKMS to investigate process and personnel safety incidents and then automatically generate Occupational Injury and Illness (OI&I) reports.
Notify the Right People at the Right Time
VisiumKMS communicates your compliance information by providing one-click viewable reports, sending deadline reminders in email, and displaying and linking dashboard charts in-system or to third-party applications.
