The Health, Safety & Environment add-on is a suite of applications that significantly extend the footprint of Maximo. There are 31 new applications and extensions to 19 applications found in core Maximo. They will help a Maximo client who is working towards compliance with the ISO 55000 standards. The Oil & Gas Industry Solution has the same set of applications but also has ISO 14224 Classification and Failure data and a couple of other applications.
Policies and Procedures The three applications Regulatory Compliance, Operating Policies and Operating Procedures are used across many of the other HSE applications. External and internal regulations are used on both policies and procedures, Operating Policies are generally implemented on a work order. The audit part of the Audits and Surveys application is used to verify that the regulations, policies and procedures are being complied with.
HSE Incidents can be reported from a Maximo Anywhere mobile application or through a desktop application with similar functionality. The Incidents application would be used to record an injury/illness, a safety, environmental or security incident, a near miss, a spillage, a safety observation or a failure in a safety process. The Investigations application determines the root cause of the incident and corrective and preventive actions are created and monitored through the Action Tracking application.
The HSE applications support Operations Management. The Log Book and Operator Logs are used for shift logs and to aid shift handovers, but they can also be used for commissioning logs and monthly engineering logs. Operator Tasks are set by maintenance and performed by operators. The Benefits and Losses application is used to support both benefit identification and loss reporting and the Bypass Management application is used for evaluating and mitigating the risks associated with bypassing safety critical assets in order to perform maintenance or repair.
Control of Work provides process control and safety procedures when work is performed. It includes hazard identification, risk assessments, permit to work and isolation management. Permit to Work and Isolation Management are similar but Isolation Management has a focus on the creation and life cycle processing of the isolation certificate needed for mechanical, electrical and process isolations of assets and operating locations.
Management of Change A Defect is used for recording issues with assets that may either need to be investigated, corrected by creating a work order or deferred to an outage or shutdown. An improvement is used for understanding the benefits of undertaking a project. Standard Actions and Standard Action Groups are used in many HSE applications for creating a checklist or a question/answer style list called Review Actions and are used at different stages in the MOC (Management of Change) application. There is an MOC Request application for organizations who would like any user to initiate a change.
HSE extends many core Maximo Asset and Work Management applications to provide a common thread between production, safety, quality and maintenance. The Locations and Assets applications allow failure modes and effect analysis (FMEA/FMECA) to be performed. The Certifications application is used for both certificates and permits, for example recording material certificates or certificates gained by people, for regulatory permits and environmental consents. The Condition for Work application can be used in conjunction with the Reason for Work and location/asset criticality to form a Prioritization Matrix which can drive the priority of work orders. The Work Order Tracking application has been extended to support turnarounds, construction or commissioning activities, for example, preparation activities, permits and certificates, and test results.
There is some overlap between the HSE application suite and that from the Nuclear Power industry solution.
