Post-Shutdown Safety Assessment (PSSA) for Industries

Safety assessment to meet your critical requirements

Safety assessment to meet your critical requirements


After being under lockdown for a significant period owing to COVID-19 pandemic, Indian industries are now gearing-up for a restart. And as we moved towards to the process of restart, it is important for owners & operators of plants to conduct a safety assessment to evaluate your current preparedness, identify and address potential gaps of the operations, processes or materials.

To support industries to assess their current processes and systems post lockdown, we are pleased to introduce you to a comprehensive Post-Shutdown Safety Assessment (PSSA) for Industries.

Based on your requirements, PSSA package will be customised for you. The programme includes:

  • Review of Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment

    Hazard Identification study and review:

    Post-Shutdown Safety Assessment (PSSA)


    Risk Assessment study and review:

    Post-Shutdown Safety Assessment (PSSA)

  • Mechanical Integrity Assessment

    Mechanical Integrity Assessment ensures equipment/assets are designed, fabricated, installed, operated and maintained in such a way that they provide the desired performance in a safe manner.

    Our result of the assessment will include comment on adequacy of maintenance plan, suggestion on improvement with change condition, immediately required (before start-up) repairs, maintenance actions.

    The entire assessment is done in three phases and depending on assessment result plant operator needs to take appropriate action.

  • Technical HSE site inspection

    Our TÜV SÜD experts will help you to identify the hazard associated with start-up activities of a plant, facilities or critical asset. Our site inspection will include:

    • Equipment operability and maintainability condition 
    • Outstanding punch list items from mechanical completion associated with PSSA HIRA review 
    • Availability of MSDS, data sheets, emergency procedures
    • Access and exit routes for operators and maintenance personnel
    • Location of emergency and safety equipment, warning signs
    • Safe location of vent lines
    • Assembly and locking systems
    • Review of temporary structure like piping, wiring, hose etc. 
  • HAZOP Study*

    Our TÜV SÜD experts will help you to identify potential hazards in a system and identifying operability problems likely to lead to nonconforming products / process. Our HAZOP study will help you to identify and assess current mitigation measures and their reliability which includes below but limited to:

    • Plan the sessions with various stake holders
    • Identify deviation by using guide words on each element
    • Identify consequences and causes
    • Identify protection, detection, and indicating mechanisms
    • Identify possible remedial/mitigating measures along with customer
    • Record the examination
    • Report preparation

    *Based on your specific requirement, the service may / may not be included in your package.

  • Qualitative Risk Assessment (QRA)*

    Our TÜV SÜD experts will help you to understand the risk associated with hazardous activities, a numerical estimate that will result from the probability of occurrence and a calculation of the single loss expectancy (SLE) of an asset. Our QRA study includes below but limited to:

    • Estimation of individual risks 
    • Aggregation of risks 
    • Identification of controls to mitigate risk
    • Consequence Analysis
    • Consequence modeling is carried out by using SAFETI software

    *Based on your specific requirement, the service may / may not be included in your package.


Our experts have developed this program to help industries to assess their process and systems for a smooth restart and continue business process post the end of lockdown and thereafter. Our experts will conduct the necessary assessment to identify and evaluate the potential gaps potential gaps, and provide you with further investigations depending on the criticality of operation, process or material.


  • Data Collection – Plant Record; P&ID; maintenance plan and record etc. 
  • Desktop study by experts 
  • Brainstorming session remotely with plant operator 
  • Plant Walkthrough based on criticality 
  • Reporting


  • Mitigate your risks – We help you to mitigate the risk arising from plant incidents, enhance safety for people and the environment, increase process transparency and eliminate interface problems.
  • Restart with confidence – Leverage on our expertise in safety and statutory compliance for legal certainty  . 
  • Save time and money – with a safety assessment package customised based on your requirements to identify the areas of potential risks and improvements
  • Independent and impartial assessment – of your current processes and systems
  • Ensure the safety of your employees and other stakeholders
