Is It Possible to Have Safe Systems That Aren't Considered Reliable?
Depending on the Equipment, Application, and Test Method, You May Be Able to Extend the Full Test Intervals for SIS Valves. This article is written by William L. (Bill) Mostia Jr., PE, of Exida, League City, Texas. Mostia has more than 25 years experience applying safety, instrumentation, and ...
In 2004, ISA adopted the most recent safety standard, ANSI/ISA 84.00.01. And though its a good start, its clear that S84 is just the tip of the iceberg toward management of functional safety.
Understand the SIF to Control Confusion, Complexity and Cost of Safety Instrumented Systems
Mistakes are inevitable, but understanding how and where they occur can minimize their frequency and impact.
If you dont deal with your computer-based control alarms in a disciplined manner, uncontrolled alarm growth can result, which can lead to out-of-control alarm systems. Find out what the top 10 reasons are to rationalizing your alarm management system.
Today’s safety instrumented systems (SIS) increasingly rely on programmable logic solvers to protect lives, property and the environment.
It is important to train engineers and IT/OT and expand the scope from network threat hunting to include ICS incident hunting. Perhaps we as an industry could collaborate on this important, but missing, task.
