The EI Process safety survey (EIPSS) was developed in partnership with the Energy Institute (EI), and is based on the EI publication High level framework for process safety management (EI ‘PSM framework’). This publication was developed in collaboration with industry and regulators and serves as the underlying framework for the EIPSS. The framework has been recognized by the UK Health and Safety Executive as good practice:

"Controlling risks within major hazard enterprises requires a robust process safety management system, driven forward by high standards of leadership and supported by effective feedback mechanisms to show the status of critical control measures. The value of this guidance produced by the Energy Institute is that it sets out a clear framework on which to develop and implement a process safety management system and from which effective 'on the ground' control measures can be derived and maintained. Lessons from recent major incidents both in the UK and internationally show in very stark terms the costs of getting process safety management wrong and I would encourage you to apply those lessons to your own organisation by the adoption and maintenance of a robust process safety management system."
