Recent incident investigations have called for a much greater emphasis on process safety management when managing risks at hazardous installations

The most common approach to process safety involves identification of the hazard, determination of the level of risk and implementation of the necessary safeguards that form the Basis of Safety. Depending upon the process, it may be necessary to employ prevention or protection solutions some of which may require the specification and design of a functional safety system like Q4 SAFETY.

The overall success of the functional safety system relies on each stage being well executed – deficiencies in any phase of the safety lifecycle will have a direct impact on the end result.
