We can facilitate your team in determining process hazards and operability issues using the HAZard and OPerability (HAZOP) methodology.
Guided by a procedure we provide, or your own HAZOP procedure, we always record a HAZOP such that later phases of activity such as LoPA or other forms of SIL study will have the necessary detail.
It is your process and your hazard, so it must involve your team. You provide team members from operations, maintenance, process, safety, EC&I and any other required specialists. The team should be assembled from staff with sufficient experience of the operations of the facility or similar facilities.
eFunctionalSafety prepares the HAZOP nodes for study and gets your preferred recording tool ready so that your valuable resources do not waste any unnecessary time. We chair the HAZOP meeting and record all the team discussions and conclusions. We can provide our own software or use your preferred recording tools.
At the end of the study, we deliver a numbered list of actions for you to get started on immediately. Soon after the meeting conclusion, we deliver a professional report outlining the full study findings.
Control HAZOP - CHAZOP - Security CHAZOP
Control HAZOP, or CHAZOP is a specialist technique usually applied after process HAZOP. CHAZOP is advised for new or modified control systems and programmable devices monitoring, controlling or providing automated safety functions for process and equipment. In such systems, hazards may be caused when either a hardware or systematic failure occurs, or when the controls actioned by the system deviate from their intended behaviour. We have extended our proven CHAZOP procedure to include Security CHAZOP to check for security vulnerabilities of existing industrial control and safety systems.
Layer of Protection Analysis - LoPA
LoPA is becoming the "go-to" method for many companies in the determination of protection layer credit. With the correct tolerable risk guidelines it can be used to determine the Safety Integrity Level (SIL) for your instrumented protection functions.
We can provide an experienced LoPA facilitator who will guide your team in correctly applying the technique without the need for costly re-work.
Safety Requirements Specification
Safety requirements are the cornerstone of any safety instrumented system (SIS) or safety related electrical control system (SRECS) project. Requirements have to be carefully prepared and kept up to date.
We can provide starting templates that have been proven on previous projects and then support the development and update of the requirements for your project.
