Are your safeguards a risk

Could the correct operation of a safeguard cause a new risk?

During HazOp we consider what could go wrong with the process, and the safeguards we have in place to prevent that. We also consider the consequences if our safeguards don’t act to provide protection. But what about when they do operate? Could the correct operation of a safeguard cause a new risk? Read our article - "Could the correct operation of a safeguard cause a new risk?"

Project vs process vs Functional safety

Co-ordinating Project, Process Safety and Functional Safety Lifecycles

Standards and guidance in particular topic areas can be very inward looking. They often don’t recognise the existence of other guidance that may need to be followed simultaneously – and which may or may not impose conflicting requirements. Project managers for process industry projects need to understand typical project requirements, but also Process Safety and Functional Safety needs. Each has a typical lifecycle – but how to make the work together is not immediately apparent.
