We’ve all walked through a hazardous processing facility and seen posters everywhere. Taglines and slogans like ‘Safety First’ and warnings around slips, trips, and falls are common. Often you’ll find a company’s corporate safety values listed as a reminder that safety is top priority. How actionable is the information shared in these formats?
CALGARY, AB, 21-Jan-26- Risk Alive Analytics Inc. is proud to announce its official membership to the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS), a global organization bringing together knowledge and building a community for safety experts and engineers around the world. With a strong membership base continuing to grow CCPS shares best practices with professionals and organizations in high-hazard industries to improve safety performance. Risk Alive® will work with CCPS to add to that community sharing critical risk knowledge, backed by science and data to make the world a safer place.
We are all members of many communities. It’s a matter of perspective, but we are members of our community neighborhood in the areas we live. The communities of the industries we work in or where we game. Our communities can be our political affiliations, religions or non-religions groups, or any group we’re a part of. For everyone working in high-hazard industries, we are all part of the risk management community.
The holiday season is upon us and in North America (and other parts of the world) we are taking time to celebrate and spend time with friends and family. Through the coming month, many of us will shower our loved ones with thoughtful gifts and appreciation in various forms. What about the process safety professionals in your life?

While we’ve made a lot of technological advancements, many processes – especially in the world of Process Safety Management (PSM) – are still the same. Process Hazards Analysis (PHA) and HAZOP studies are one of those processes that is on the verge of turning a major corner, and some companies already have thanks to Risk Alive Analytics.
When a new employee starts work in your plant at 7:00AM on a Monday, what would you want them to know before their coffee break? Beginning their day by outlining the biggest human initiated process risks and most important human-dependent safeguards might be a good start.
Did you know there are millions of pieces of equipment in any process facility? Sometimes there are tens of millions or more. For the asset integrity and maintenance professionals who are tasked with keeping everything running smoothly, it’s a mammoth job and while perfection may be attainable, it’s far from simple to achieve.
Managing employee retention can help alleviate the pain of knowledge leakage but it’s only a stopgap measure if systems are not in place to sustain corporate knowledge over the long term. You may have hired some of the best risk experts in the world and they may stay with you throughout their whole career, but the fact is, they will retire and leave your team one way or another at some point in the future.
