H. Abdul Aziz, A. Mohd Shariff, P.S. Zawiyah and R. Rusli

Abstract:
A common threat in all major incidents is the complexity of process plant operation. Thus, clear written standard operating method must be compiled and comprehend to ensure safe operation when performing any related activities. One of the establish standards that addressed the above issue is Operating Procedures (OP) of OSHA Process Safety Management (PSM) 29 CFR 1910.119(f). This study presents OP implementation technique that could fulfill the 29 CFR 1910.119(f) requirements. It provides organized strategies to manage documentations and communicate information and written program for maintaining, revising and updating process procedure and safe work information. Piping and Instrumentation Diagram (P and ID) is used as a foundation for data management. The developed technique has been transformed to computer database prototype known as Operating Procedures Management System (OPrMAS) which articulately demonstrate the concept. Implementation of this technique could help employers manage and control hazards of process plant and compliance with PSM regulation.
