Management of Change

A practical one day training course for personnel who are responsible for and/or who are involved in the topic of MoC at Major Accident Hazard (MAH) sites.

All COMAH and Offshore Safety Case (OSC) regulated establishments are required to have a Process Safety Management (PSM) system, and within such a system, the topic of MoC must be addressed. MoC is one of the most important elements of a PSM system as it helps to ensure that safety is maintained on a day to day basis. Industry continues to suffer from loss of containment events associated with poor MoC, so what are the essential features of a good MoC system and how does the MoC system link with other elements of process safety?

ABB’s experience is that there is no commonly adopted industry standard covering the topic of MoC and as such companies have developed bespoke systems over many years. Has the system changed so much that the focus on the essential features has been lost thereby increasing the risk of a MAH? Are users of the MoC system fully aware of what is key to effectively manage change?

This training course will explain the principles and essential features of a MoC system and will discuss the practical application of such systems to changes to Process Safety Information (PSI) and organisational change. The course includes incident case studies where MoC contributed to a major incident.

The course will assist delegates to:
- Identify and correct deficiencies in their MoC system
- Determine ways to continuously improve MoC effectiveness

Having a rigorous and robust MoC system can help companies avoid major incidents and significant business interruption.

The course uses a lively mix of interactive presentations, case study examples and workshops to help illustrate issues associated with MoC. A workshop is included to help delegates develop a plan for improving their existing MoC system.
