FACILEX Organizational Management of Change

Changes in job responsibilities, loss of key personnel, or even changes in shift hours can lead to serious incidents with potentially severe consequences. Organizational Management of Change (OMOC) is attracting increasing scrutiny from regulators and corporate stakeholders, prompting the publication of the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) “Guidelines for Managing Process Safety Risks During Organizational Change”.

Gateway has configured Microsoft SharePoint to manage the organizational change business process. The OMOC process can be decomposed into a number of states. The collection and sequence of states is termed the lifecycle. The essential difference between different kinds of MOC’s (e.g. organizational, facility, etc.) is that they have different lifecycles. A lifecycle for an Organizational MOC is shown below.

The diagram indicates that the lifecycle begins with the Initiation state. The OMOC is “promoted” from one state to the next. An OMOC can also be “demoted” from a state to any of its previous states.

Capabilities and key features include:

  • Initiate a proposed organizational change
  • Parent/Child relationships to connect related OMOCs
  • Progressive scoping to identify management system risks and impacts
  • Layers of Protection (LOPA),
  • Conduct a risk assessment of the change
  • Process authorization to implement the change
  • Assign action items to mitigate the identified risks
  • Track and close action items
  • Notify stakeholders of the change and the implementation plan
  • Verify all the affected documents and systems have been updated
  • Document close-out of the change
