Recommended prerequisites: Participants should have practical, technical experience in design, operation, or maintenance of complex systems.
MOC is the element for which all other “foundation” elements of PSM are implemented. It is the PSM element that controls introduction of new risk. Recognizing change, analyzing the risk of each change, and handling small changes efficiently are just some of the barriers that managers face with MOC implementation. This 2-day course explores proven strategies for implementing a workable MOC system and customized approaches to fit your company’s culture. It also shows how to implement physical and instrumentation changes through the proper use of pre-startup safety review (PSSR) systems, sometimes called operational readiness reviews (ORRs). Written examples of programs for addressing simple and complex changes are included in the course notebook.
