PHMSA 192.631 Control Room Management has code requirements for Alarm Management, Fatigue Mitigation, Management of Change, and Process Management that the company lacked enough appropriate industry knowledge and expertise. Outside guidance was sought to aid in the CRM plan administration and implementation. UCDS came highly recommended from various industry contacts and references.
UCDS performed a gap analysis and made various recommendations and improvements to our CRM plan. Plan has successfully gone through two multistate audits. UCDS brought to the table knowledge and skills in areas that were lacking. Staff now has better guidance and skills on all aspects of Gas Control functions. I would absolutely recommend UCDS!
