Process Safety Management – PSM

Chilworth Global provides the Hazard and Operability Study or HAZOP.

We assist our clients in meeting their Process Safety Management (PSM) challenges with a clear understanding of the requirements of sound PSM program design and implementation, as well as global coverage and support to comply with local requirements.

Our approach

Several PSM regulations (for example, OSHA PSM in the U.S., SEVESO SMS in Europe) and industry guidelines drive PSM practices. Our services are designed to help companies comply with these PSM regulatory requirements as well as established industry standards. We help ensure PSM fits seamlessly into our clients’ business models and operations, that PSM is embraced and becomes a real part of a company’s culture, and that it is successfully implemented throughout the lifecycle of operations to lower risk. We do this by providing “best in class” PSM and process safety engineering (PSE) services to all of our clients.
