Process safety management (PSM) is a major issue for the energy industry, with many organisations looking to adopt a more holistic and systematic approach to assuring the integrity of their operations.

The Energy Institute (EI) Process Safety Committee (PSC) identified a benefit in promoting a common high-level framework for PSM across the energy industry sectors. EI High level framework for process safety management ('PSM Framework') provides a simple and systematic approach suitable for organisations large and small across the energy industry sectors, defining the key things organisations need to get right in order to assure the integrity of their operations incorporating technical, maintenance, operational, and human and organisational factors.
