Functional safety

Electrical, electronic and programmable electronic (E/E/PE) safety-related systems play a crucial role at industrial facilities in managing risk to tolerable levels.  Risktec considers the complete lifecycle of safety-related and business-critical systems, including concept, requirements, planning, specification, design, commissioning, operation, maintenance and decommissioning phases.

  • Hazard identification (e.g. HAZOP, FMEA, FMECA, human error review)
  • Causal and consequence analysis (e.g. fault tree analysis, event tree analysis)
  • SIL assessment and verification
  • Layer of protection analysis (LOPA)
  • Identifying safety-critical elements and developing performance standards and verification schemes
  • Design substantiation of safety requirements
  • Options analysis
  • ALARP assessment
