Site Safety Index: The Awareness of Safety Culture (2016)

Recording Date: August 2016

When comparing competing products, it is expected to see different failure rates. However, when manufacturing companies compare internal failure rates between their different site locations, they are noticing different failure rates as well! Why is this? The difference in failure rates could be any range from 1.2X – 2X based on data received to date. Research has concluded that random failures can be divided in to two categories: product specific and site specific. The differences seem to be related to site variables that some have called “Safety Culture.” exida defines this variable as the “Site Safety Index (SSI).” This webinar will provide an overview of the impact of SSI on random failure rates, realistic PFDAVG calculations, and the impact of a good safety culture on lifecycle cost.
