Definition and Assessment Services

The safety life cycle begins at the concept stage, where we help identify and understand your risks, potential consequences, and the level of protection needed to manage and mitigate them.
  • Our offers

    • ISA84/IEC61511 gap assessment services identify gaps between protection and potential risk.

    • Process hazard analysis (PHA) services identify the hazards and risks, often according to relevant regulatory requirements for companies that handle or process highly hazardous chemicals.

    • Layer of protection analysis (LOPA) services evaluate process safety risks and ensure proper safeguards or independent protection layers (IPLs) are in place to reduce risk to a tolerable level.

    • Independent protective layer (IPL) and safety integrity level (SIL) selection services further define and refine selected IPLs and set SIL target assignments.

    • Quantitative risk assessment (QRA) services verify the severity of the scenario, the consequence and the frequency, as well as handling conditional dependence among IPLs and the initiating causes.

    • Safety integrity level (SIL) verification services calculate each safety instrumented function (SIF), factoring in parameters, assumptions, limitations and data sources for each.

    • Safety requirements specification (SRS) services define the integrity and functional requirements of each SIF as defined in Clause 10 of IEC 61511.

    • Functional safety management planning (FSMP) services ensure that each SIF is correctly designed and operated to obtain the appropriate levels of risk reduction.

Why work with us

  • Default Alternative Text A clear delineation of potential risks related to process operations and the kinds of protection that will be needed to close them.
  • Default Alternative Text Assured adherence to all relevant regulations and standards.
  • IEC 61511 best practice compliance White Paper

    This paper examines a small sample of some new requirements to make the point that even though plants may have good functional safety management systems in place today, compliance with Edition 2 of IEC 61511 will require additional assessment, monitoring, and management of the SIS.
