APM Best Practices - Effectively managing the safety lifecycle

Effectively managing the safety lifecycle requires teamwork between multiple disciplines, departments and companies, but it shouldn’t require multiple solutions. See how you can consolidate the entire safety lifecycle into a streamlined solution ensuring risk is reduced, instrumented systems are available and compliance requirements are met. The “cradle to grave” lifecycle approach that is enabled by the APM Safety work process provides visibility across the organization to what teams are doing, and how well their doing it.

In this third webinar in a series about APM, Stork, SOCAR Turkey and GE Digital share their insights on process safety best practices, from various perspectives: the process, the solution and the culture.
