The EI Process Safety Committee has developed High level framework for process safety management ('PSM framework'), a comprehensive process safety management framework which captures industry good practice in process safety management (PSM).  It provides the energy industry with a consistent and effective approach to answer two key questions with confidence:

1. How will we assure the integrity of the operation?
2. How will we know we are doing it?

EI PSM framework provides a common understanding of requirements for all levels in the organisation from senior management through to operational staff and provides a consistent basis for discussion with regulators, insurers and other stakeholders.

The EI PSM framework was developed with input from experienced practitioners from all sectors of the energy industry; significantly, representatives participated from the industrial insurance sector and the UK health, safety and environment regulators. The EI PSM framework is unique in that it has been developed by the energy industry for the energy industry. This publication incorporates findings from Technical workshop proceedings: Initial report - Framework for high-level process safety management.
