Within the lifecycle of a capital project, it is common to conduct process safety reviews once the design and site layout have reached a mature state. This often leads to project team frustrations because at this advanced stage of design, mitigating hazards and risks is either difficult or costly due to the high level of rework associated with moving hazards/ populations to safer locations, layers of protections to be added to design systems, and ensuring the buildings are robust enough to protect personnel from identified hazards. One way to mitigate the frustrations associated with late stage changes is to introduce and effectively manage stage gate process safety reviews throughout the design phases. Note that it is critical that the stage gate process safety reviews align with the overall project schedule, so they can provide timely results and any recommendations can flow into the design process prior to progressing to the next stage.
