In 2010 the EI's Process Safety Committee identified a benefit in promoting a common high-level framework for PSM across the energy industry sectors. The first edition of the  High level framework for process safety management provided a simple and systematic approach suitable for organisations large and small across the energy industry sectors, defining the key items that organisations need to get right to assure the integrity of their operations incorporating technical, maintenance, operational, and human and organisational factors.

This framework provides a consistent approach that should help high hazards organisations seeking efficient development and implementation approaches to achieve effective PSM. The framework is geared more towards the management of process safety during the post-design phase of an asset, rather than the design itself, which is well served with international standards and codes of practice. That said, the primary aim of the framework is to preserve the design intent of a major hazards asset.
