API is hosting a webinar with Avetta and Southwest Gas on May 12 to discuss the API Third Party Assessment Program and will then feature Southwest Gas Corporation sharing how they have successfully broken barriers to drive continual improvement in PSMS implementation.

As part of the industry’s ongoing commitment to continuous pipeline safety improvement, API developed a not-for-profit Pipeline SMS Assessment Program in collaboration with industry partners. During this live webinar, API will discuss their Pipeline SMS Third-Party Assessment Program, the assessment program’s uniqueness by utilizing a diverse set of assessors with multiple affiliations, and discuss 2021 and beyond. 

Additionally, Southwest Gas Corporation will share how they have successfully broken barriers by implementing a Champions network at both an executive and cross-functional employee level to drive continual improvement and contractors’ engagement through workshops and summit meetings, which will encourage PSMS adoption performance of their PSMS gap analysis. Southwest Gas will also discuss how they incorporated system improvement enhancements through a corrective action program and a virtual peer review (assessment) of a select PSMS essential element.  Finally, they will share advances made in Stakeholder Engagement through various communication channels.
