PSI & Other Services
Correct and manageable Process Safety Information (PSI) is at the foundation of any successful petrochemical process or system.
Process Safety Information (PSI) Services
Provenance Consulting recognizes that correct and manageable Process Safety Information (PSI) is at the foundation of any successful petrochemical process or system. Too frequently, systems and processes are implemented without adequate review and updating of the data and documents that feed these systems and processes. Additionally, ongoing safety, hazard, and operability reviews of each facility are dependent on the accuracy of the information utilized during the evaluation.
In order to comply with all required regulatory, legal, and internal standards, PSI must consist of information pertaining to the equipment in the process. Provenance has proven methods to verify that this information is accurate and consistent and is capable of creating and updating PSI as necessary to maintain accuracy.

One of the most critical aspects of a successful PSM system is managing change. Without a robust Management of Change (MOC) process, all systems are susceptible to becoming outdated, inaccurate, and untrustworthy.
Our extensive experience in auditing, implementing and stewarding MOC processes gives Provenance exceptional insight to why MOC processes so frequently are not accepted, not followed, and ultimately fail.
More importantly, we bring to bear proven solutions to unravel existing MOC problems and leave your facility with a fully implemented process accepted by all MOC stakeholders.
Our services include:
- MOC audits and reviews
- MOC system implementation
- MOC system stewardship
- Pre-startup safety reviews (PSSR) facilitation
- Personnel training
To their advantage, many facilities have migrated legacy hard copy drawings to electronic media. However, to fully benefit from electronic documentation these records need to be consistent, properly formatted, and attributed.
As the adage goes, a picture tells a thousand words; however, in today’s world of information management the pictures, or drawings, must be intelligent, indexed, and accessible to the facility’s personnel otherwise you may find these pictures ‘blur’ a thousand words.
