Management of Change to facilities, commonly “MOC”, is an OSHA Process Safety Management (PSM) regulatory requirement that applies to US companies managing hazardous materials and/or processes.
Gateway has developed a user-friendly MOC solution on the Microsoft 365 platform that’s capable of initiating, scoping, and managing the execution of change in an OSHA-compliant manner. A trained administrator can configure FACILEX® MOC to incorporate the characteristics of their asset structure, personnel and business rules.
A key feature of FACILEX® MOC is the representation of the business process using a lifecycle. The lifecycle design provides the flexibility needed to process simple or large and complex changes. The baseline configuration provides lifecycles for permanent, temporary and emergency changes. Additional lifecycles for changes to personnel and procedures are also available.
FACILEX® MOC provides a powerful and intuitive initiation process that manages the collection of the common, and regulation-governed attributes required for this process. FACILEX® MOC is configured to represent an organization’s asset structure in drop down menus that rapidly allow the initiator to define where a change is taking place.
Any MOC numbering scheme can be supported. FACILEX® uses standard SharePoint lists that can be easily configured for additional attributes such as text, numbers, dates or Boolean logic.
FACILEX® MOC is also available as a mobile application that allows the process to be initiated off-line and synchronize later with the Microsoft 365 platform.
FACILEX® MOC risk prescreening capabilities are included in the initiation process. A baseline risk matrix is provided out-of-the-box, however this can be easily substituted with an organization’s existing risk matrix.
FACILEX® MOC provides a complete set of scoping checklists that rapidly categorize the type of change being considered and only presents the scoping questions that are applicable. Once again, FACILEX® MOC delivers efficiency to the process by reducing the amount of work required to process a simple change, and yet also provides the ability to scope a very complex change.
Based on the answers to the scoping questions FACILEX® will recommend the roles or groups that should be involved in processing the change. FACILEX® allows the MOC owner to select people and groups to participate in the change from the Microsoft Active Directory.
FACILEX® uses Microsoft 365 for all aspects of electronic document management including: access, version and revision control. Each MOC has a comprehensive folder structure to store supporting documentation and work-in-progress documentation.
The baseline configuration comes with several standard reports and custom reports are easily configured. MOC details can be rapidly printed or exported to graphical reporting tools such as Power BI, Excel and third party products such as Tableau.
