Project HSE Review (PHSER)
Project HSE review is to assure the company about identified HSE sensitive areas have been identified in a systematic way and to ensure compliance with health, safety and environmental standards and legislations. During the various stages of the project Work Company has to ensure all the HSE risks are identified and the control measures are recommended and forwarded to the further activities involved in the project.

During the various stages of the project Work Company has to ensure all the HSE risks are identified and the control measures are recommended and forwarded to the further activities involved in the project.
- To suggest control measures that those engineering and operational systems would be developed to control / manage the identified risks.
- To carry out a qualitative Study of project’s HSE plans and actions
- To find shortfalls and non-compliance out of agreed and established project/HSE Plan and actions.
PHSER review is carried out by a team involving the client and contractor representatives. The worksheet based on client’s input document is prepared and every supporting document like Project QA/QC plans, Project HSE plan, Operations and Control Philosophy, QRA study recommendations are reviewed and Index of Action Points are developed for further tracking and implementation. The discussions are led by the third Party PHSER Chairman.
Project HSE can be done in various stages of the project:
Stage 1: Conceptual study
To ensure the significant HSE issues are identified that could affect the viability of the potential project. This involves the processes, operation, location, construction risk etc.
Stage 2: Project Definition (Basic Design HSE Review)
- To confirm all HSE concerns relating to the characteristics of the full lifecycle of the project, novel technology and the nature of the location have been identified.
- To ensure and verify the identification of all applicable regulations, standards, and relevant client expectations.
- To develop the adequate Project Execution HSE plan.
Stage 3: Project Execution (Detail Engineering & Design HSE Review)
- To verify that HSE Studies, including specialist reviews, are being satisfactorily addresses and followed–up.
- To ensure HSE related aspects of the engineering designs meet or exceed regulatory requirements and that satisfactory project codes, standards have been identified and design philosophies have been established.
- To confirm Engineering Assurance Processes are in place.
- To confirm Management of Change Procedures are in place.
- To ensure that documentation requirements have been addressed.
- To verify that a resourcing and Training Strategy is established.
Stage 4: Project Execution (Construction HSE review)
- To confirm that HSE studies (as per HSE Plan requirements) are complete and the recommendations are being satisfactorily addressed.
- To confirm that change control procedures are being applied and that appropriate hazard review of changes has been instigated to maintain HSE integrity.
Stage 5: Project Execution (Commissioning HSE review)
- To verify that pre-commissioning has been satisfactorily completed and the plant is ready for commissioning.
- To confirm commissioning, maintenance and operational personnel are adequately trained, equipped and competent and that all necessary procedures are available. Fire team also to be aware of various hazards, available emergency systems and their handling.
- To confirm that Business Unit / Site has made adequate preparations for start-up.
- To confirm emergency response arrangements and procedures have been established.
- To verify that deviations from design have been satisfactorily addressed and will not Compromise HSE performance.
Stage 6: Project Operate & Monitoring stage HSE review
- To verify that HSE performance of the operating facility meets design intent.
- To make sure lessons learned from the execution of the project and early operation of the plant are captured and shared.
