New TSA charter emphasises importance of safety leadership

With the launch of the Tank Storage Associations (TSA) new Safety Leadership Charter, we hear from Peter Davidson, executive director of the TSA, on the importance the organisation places on Process Safety Leadership.

The Safety Leadership Charter consists of seven pledges that demonstrate commitment to managing major hazard risks by promoting an engaged, positive, informed and cooperative safety culture.

Peter said; “The TSA is committed to ensuring that safety lessons and best practice are shared across the sector wherever possible. Our dedicated Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) committee is key to achieving this, and we remain a driving force in a number of industry safety forums, including the Process Safety Forum and the COMAH Strategic Forum. Since its publication in 2009, TSA’s members have fully supported the Process Safety Leadership Group’s Principles of Process Safety Leadership and the launch of our Commitment to Good Major Hazard Leadership further strengthens this support. Our aim is to ensure that these principles are embedded in all that we do as a sector.”

Paul Denmead, president of the TSA, commented; “The Tank Storage Association, with the support of its members, has developed the Safety Leadership Charter to promote a positive and cooperative safety culture within member organisations. This Charter clearly demonstrates our commitment to major hazard safety, starting at the top, and puts the TSA at the forefront of safety leadership within our sector.”

Martyn Lyons, chief executive of Inter Terminals, commented; “High standards of leadership are essential to ensure effective control of major hazard risks. The Safety Leadership Charter, developed by the Tank Storage Association in conjunction with sector’s leaders, is a testament to our strong commitment to strive for the highest standards and continue leading from the front.”
