The Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS
) was established in 1985 by the American Institute of ChemicalEngineers (AIChE) for the express purpose of assisting industry in avoiding or mitigating catastrophic chemicalaccidents. More than 100 corporate members around the world drive the activities of CCPS.In 2006, the CCPS Technical Steering Committee authorized a project, and the creation of a project committee, todevelop a Guideline book for the development and use of Leading and Lagging Process Safety Metrics. In the initialmeeting, the committee identified that the key breakthrough opportunity for industry was the development of anindustry lagging metric that would become the benchmark across the chemical and petroleum industries for measuringprocess safety performance. To achieve this objective, it would become essential to involve representatives andmembers from each of the major chemical and petroleum trade associations as well as other key stakeholders.CCPS elected to extend invitations to a number of organizations, soliciting their involvement in this project.The ultimate objective of this committee is to complete the Guideline book originally authorized by CCPS, suchthat additional information and guidance is available to individual companies on how to better use metrics toimprove their process safety performance. This document is intended to propose an industry-wide lagging metricand suggested leading and other metrics for individual company consideration.CCPS strongly recommends that companies around the globe adopt and implement these recommendations.
