inFRONT Announces Partnerships to Save Lives in Petrochemical Industry

New Orleans-based inFRONT is a technology company dedicated to improving business processes in the petrochemical industry. They recently announced a partnership with two companies, a leading multinational oil and gas company and one of the world’s largest LNG companies.

inFRONT AllClear Emergency AssemblyThe two companies have implemented inFRONT’s AllClear Emergency Assembly Solution, the first-ever emergency response application for the industry. The app includes enhanced emergency response teams (ERT) management tools, special annotation, and accurate forensic reporting.

What makes AllClear’s reporting unique is that it is deep and advanced and provides robust data for safety professionals.

AllClear will be used by the emergency response teams (ERTs) at more than 20 global refineries and LNG plants to make better and faster decisions that save lives and money by reducing mustering time by over 90 percent. It will help keep 40,000 employees safe because of this newly announced partnership.

“AllClear was chosen by these companies because we’ve built our technology with the input of emergency responders who live the job every day,” said Christopher Laibe, president and founder of inFRONT. “As a result, AllClear’s features are on point with Emergency Response Teams as they strive to improve their readiness for the unexpected.”

By June 2015, AllClear was already proven to refine the pace and accuracy of emergency mustering exercises by 90% in downstream facilities, and return 1,850 people to work 30 minutes faster than normal, an estimated productivity savings of $79,000.

“The common mission of all petrochemical facilities is to maintain safe operations and protect their employees, placing a heavy burden on their emergency response resources,” said Laibe. “Investing in the quality, timeliness, and usability of data in emergency assembly – both during and after an event – puts the facility on a continuous improvement journey. This data empowers safety professionals to achieve their mission of returning all employees home safely to their families at the end of each shift.”
