Trust our industry experts for content you can either put into use right out of the box, or can customize to fit your organization's needs.
Planned changes are an integral part of technological progress and continuous improvement. A disciplined approach to Management of Change (MOC) is necessary to ensure that safety and integrity are not compromised while maintainingthe initial intent of the change. The Management of Change Standard will be used to manage changes at company owned and operated facilities. This standard provides a framework of activities for ensuring that changes are carefully and diligently executed. Further, the MOC process is a primary tool used to manage risk by ensuring modifications made to Company facilities and processes undergo the proper health, safety, environmental, engineering, operational and business reviews.
This purpose of this procedure is to describe the requirements and steps in execution of a Management of Change (MOC) at the facility, to manage risk by ensuring modifications made to Company facilities and processes undergo the proper health, safety, environmental, engineering, operational and business reviews as per the MOC Standard for Facility / Equipment. Following this procedure will ensure compliance with the following U.S. and Canadian regulations; 29 CFR 1910.119(l), OSHA; 40 CFR Part 68.75, EPA; API RP 750 – Management of Process Hazards; ABSA AB-512, Province of Alberta; and OH&S Code, Province of Alberta.
In the USA, Management of Change (MOC) is required by certain regulatory agencies and/or drivers for "covered processes" containing highly hazardous chemicals. MOC is designed to review, analyze, and approve process changes (including changes to personnel) such that any hazards introduced by the change are identified and controlled.
People retire, start new jobs, get promoted, get transferred, and change positions for a multitude of reasons. Facility management operating hazardous processes shall identify positions critical to process safety and develop criteria for management of changes that impact these positions to ensure that minimum levels of specific, direct, process experience – in addition to minimum levels of knowledge and skill in managing process safety – are maintained. The following are regulatory requirements for establishing a Management of Organizational Change (MOOC) process: 29 CFR 1910.119, OSHA; and 40 CFR Part 68.75, EPA. This MOOC Standard establishes the requirements for developing and implementing MOOC procedures at the facility.
The purpose of this Procedure is to ensure compliance with 29 CFR 1910.119(l). This Management of Organizational Change (MOOC) Procedure provides facility guidance for implementation of Organizational Change. This MOOC Procedure also provides a process to ensure that minimum levels of specific process experience, knowledge, and skills are maintained after organizational changes to ensure the continued safe operation of the facility.

The purpose of this procedure is to ensure that the movements of personnel in Process Safety Critical Positions are managed, so that minimum levels of specific process experience, knowledge, skills, and capabilities in managing process safety are maintained.
