Optimization of safety performance
Process Safety and Functional Safety is more than just hardware, software, testing and metrics. Taking an overall approach and instilling a culture of safety requires a complete end-to-end system. This includes digitalized lifecycle management, from initial Hazard Analysis through Operations & Maintenance to final Decommissioning.
Safety related data, generated by all stages of the functional safety lifecycle is collated in one relational platform. This facilitates the customer the ability to optimize safety performance across a plant, facility, or enterprise. He also becomes able to demonstrate auditable, continuous compliance with the relevant standards for Functional Safety.
The new solution will address customer needs and concerns by providing key performance indicators and reports. This offers visibility and assurance that the process risk controls are being effectively managed before an incident occurs.
“The combined team of HIMA experts and the best-in-class SLM® platform will transform the Process Safety and Functional Safety market,” said Steve Whiteside, President of MSS. “We are proud to be a key component of HIMA’s Lifecycle Services and the Lifecycle Management Solution, which will form the foundation of digitalization safety related strategies for many organizations around the world.”
