Pre-Startup Safety Reviews (PSSRs)

Pre-Startup Safety Reviews (PSSRs)



Readiness for Review

Readiness of workers and equipment for review, particularly in relation to safety, qualification, sequences and timing.


Data Accuracy

Paper-based sign-offs, data reliability, lack of ‘checks & balances’ and audit trails/timestamps for task execution and sign-off.


Review Standardization

Standardization of regulation-compliant review procedures that are applicable to the same equipment, irrespective of location.


Data Integrity

Quality, accuracy, objectivity and consistency issues related to manually recorded, paper-based data collection not built from standardized checklists.


Data Availability

Delay in receipt of handwritten documentation of review findings,
often only available on completion of the review.



Customization to specific facility/equipment requirements and involvement of many different workers who often fail to leave sufficient records.


The Human Factor

Lack of communication, inaccurate decision-making, human error and insufficient/inaccurate reporting.


The Mobideo Platform offers a paradigm shift in the execution of PSSRs by digitalizing workflows, forms and checklists and delivering notifications, alerts, reports, digital wallcharts and KPI dashboards. Integrating with existing systems of record such as schedule and EAM/APM/CMMS solutions, it rapidly digitalizes unique know-how and content captured in operational documentation (such as manuals, SOPs and checklists) and then integrates it in planned, sequenced activities as actionable tasks and digitalized checklists that can be dispatched to workers and teams in real-time. This digitalization delivers three important solutions:

Connected Workers

The Mobideo App enables workers to automate sign-off and notification processes, thereby ensuring momentum and eliminating issues associated with the capture of manual sign-off signatures. Operational on any mobile device, it provides access to all information needed for safety reviews, guiding workers through digital checklists that tell them what to do, how to do it, and how to do it safely. This reduces the likelihood of human error, validates that work is performed by-the-book, and ensures that all management of change (MOC)/PSSR tasks are performed without paperwork or digital cameras.

Connected Managers

The Mobideo Control Center connects managers at all levels, giving them real-time visibility and insights into all work activities. Constantly monitoring and comparing activities, it delivers real-time visibility of each sign-off status and automatically provides notifications and intelligent alerts to communicate important information to the right people at the right time. Together with the collection of additional data, it empowers managers with the situational awareness they need for better decision-making and resource allocation throughout the PSSR process.

Process Optimization

The Mobideo Optimizer captures all data from the Mobideo App and the Mobideo Control Center, generating a rich data set that is displayed in digital wallcharts and saved for future use. Use of this data for a range of purposes – such as KPI measurement and analysis, audits, evaluation of how tasks are actually being executed and identification of trends and work patterns – drives continuous process improvement, strengthens operational excellence and increases efficiency and productivity.

Regulation-compliant standardization of paperless safety reviews through digital checklists

Provides reviewers with digital checklists of relevant tasks in advance, ensuring a steady stream of work and accurate, consistent inspection procedures that enable the deployment of reviewers for the uniform testing of the same equipment in plants around the globe.

Capturing all data electronically and correlating it to relevant safety data enables the capture of insights concerning past practices and modifications; drives further process improvements; and allows for future team members to benefit from the organization’s learning, rather than just relying on employee-to-employee training and knowledge sharing.

All stages of the MOC and PSSR process are assigned at a team or individual level, making it much easier to identify poor MOC and reducing inherent risks in operations.

Increases productivity and eliminates out-of-date, paper-based schedules, documents and information, manual reporting and human errors, ensuring streamlined, paperless, more efficient and accurate execution and reporting of reviews.

Availability of all relevant documents, drawings and results on a mobile device, eliminating paper trails and ensuring immediate access to the most up-to-date versions of reference material.

Specific digital safety checklists adapted to each task, reviewer and equipment reduce the likelihood of possibly dangerous safety shortcuts and human errors, and increase the reliability of results.

Always know who did what, and when.

Real-time visibility provides valuable insights – such as gaps, bottlenecks and review teams falling behind – and enables immediate, proactive intervention, including the reassignment of resources to meet changing needs.

Inspection data automatically populates compliance reports, KPIs and dashboards to drive continuous improvement and analytics, eliminate data transposition and associated errors, and improve the quality of data in systems of record.

Automated review, sign-off and approval of review work delivers a frictionless experience, eliminating the need for stakeholders to be onsite for review and approval.

Real-time visibility and understanding that everything has been performed reduces the number of surprises in actual equipment start-up, while alerts and notifications ensure avoidance of delays or non-conformance to SOPs for completing PSSRs.
