With the Health and Safety Executive’s continued focus on both Process and Machine Functional Safety it has never been more important that owners / operators of operating sites seek to tackle what can be seen as a complex and costly topic.
However, as with many aspects of compliance and engineering, perception and reality can be very different things. At C3 our TUV Certified Engineers believe that by the application of good, robust and pragmatic systems, site’s can navigate the compliance minefield.
What makes C3 different to other providers is the fact that our TUV Certified Engineers understand both the numerous standards but equally (and perhaps more crucially) what the Regulator expects
C3 has found though years of experience that many companies and organizations fall into the trap of ‘over analyzing’ and as a result attempting to apply the requirements of the standard to processes and situations for which they were never meant to be used. The end result is either complete action paralysis or worst still large all-encompassing Function Safety projects with price tags to match.
To aid companies though the process C3 has developed a number of simple, open and effective tools. These tools cover the whole Functional Safety Lifecycle from ensuring the ‘appropriate’ application of LOPA and resulting in a significant reduction in the number of Safety Instrumented Systems proposed, through the completion of SIL calculations and to Functional Safety Auditing.
