Optimize Processes and Recordkeeping for Alarm Management

Pipeline operators can find it challenging to advance from basic alarm rationalization to a full Alarm Management program. We provide operators with the tools they need to take the next step toward operating safely, efficiently, and in full compliance with the PHMSA Control Room Management Rule (CRM Rule) requirements for alarm management.

We also help you optimize alarm management processes in alignment with your Control Room Management Plan (CRMP) and ensure proper recordkeeping so that you can achieve Natural Compliance.

Your operation needs processes and procedures, a monthly review of alarms, appropriate recordkeeping, and the ability to produce records demonstrating compliance with the CRM Rule. We meet these needs through our alarm management solution, ALMgr.
