Industrial process safety management has evolved beyond simple functional safety. Some companies are at risk because management and business process aspects are not integrated into the overall safety plan. Such gaps can impact both operational integrity and profitable performance. Explore the change drivers affecting plant process safety management and learn how operators can find, measure, and manage gaps to maintain safe conditions and improve profitability.

The safety of operations can have a direct, positive impact on the operational profitability of the plant. Environmental health and safety (EH&S) can now be viewed not just as a cost center, but as a profit center, and new levels of both safety and profitability can result. Real-time safe profitability is no longer a dream—it is a reality!

New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS). Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors. Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line? A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL.
