During our Lunch & Learn series on November 2, 2023, our Founder, Steve McCord, discussed mitigating errors during the procedure review process. Steve shared OSHA’s recommendations for process safety management and how you can effectively apply these guidelines in procedure reviews. He emphasized the critical aspects of verification and validation — the assurance that a procedure is not only technically accurate but also practical for real-world use.

Steve used the BP DeepWater Horizon blowout as an example of what can go wrong when procedures are not adequately reviewed and human-factored. You can watch the Lunch & Learn below to learn more about the seven steps of the procedure process and how you can utilize these steps to conduct effective procedure assessments!

We had fun putting these videos together, and we hope you enjoy them too!
