Safety Instrumented System (SIS)

Industrial processes and plants increasingly experience concern about potential incidents that can affect people, assets and the environment in and outside the plant. A safety instrumented system (SIS) can dramatically reduce the risk of accidents in your plant. The ANSI/ISA 84 functional safety standards is widely used to implement safety instrumented systems and are 'good engineering practices in relation to Process Safety Management' (OSHA PSM 29 CFR Part 1910).

In the continuously evolving process industry, the need for expansion and upgrades of aging safety platforms and infrastructures is undeniable. Yokogawa understands your need to implement a safety system that is compliant with the new safety regulations, such as the ANSI/ISA 84 and NFPA standards.

Our expertise covers all major applications such as ESD (Emergency Shut Down), F&G or FGS (Fire and Gas Systems), BMS (Burner or Boiler Management Systems) as well as HIPPS or HIPS (High Integrity (Pipeline) Protection Systems).

Yokogawa has over 50 years of experience in the development and implementation of safety systems and is the world's most trusted automation solutions partner for efficient project execution and safety system solutions.

Contact us today and become one of many to discover how the benefits of a compliant safety system surpasses its cost.

Yokogawa has come a long way in making its message clear to the world of process automation. Last year, the company embarked on a full-scale global marketing campaign to make customers aware of the company's focus on system reliability, security, dependability, and robustness. Dubbed "Vigilance", the campaign created a unified message for the company and greatly helped expand awareness of the Yokogawa brand and corporate philosophy.

Overview:

Process automation end users are under more pressure than ever to do more with less. The current economic climate means that many automation capital projects are on hold. With capital budgets tighter than ever, users instead focus on operational budgets (where cost cutting is also a key concern), or on automation investments with a very rapid return on investment.

Webinars

    Overview:

    When regulations like OSHA Process Safety Management mandate you to have a process safety system, there are a variety of solutions you are allowed to implement. And even though regulations may not have changed much themselves, recent accident investigation reports show a trend of stricter scrutiny for using current engineering practice RAGAGEP (Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practice). What should you be using for your automated system when there is a stringent safety requirement?

    In this webinar, you will learn the differences between widely used process safety system types. We will also discuss:

    • The differences in technologies used (PLC vs Safety PLC)
    • How industry standards can influence the safety requirement of the system or equipment in question
    • The importance of safety & production
    • Practicality for RAGAGEP requirements
    Overview:

    Safety systems are often regarded as a mandatory item to have installed in your process plant. Selecting a safety system is mainly focused on implementation in the most efficient and cost effective way. Decision makers do not always realize that a safety system needs to be implemented by expert staff and it needs to be maintained over decades of its life span. Furthermore, implementing your safety system the right way, will not only be cost-effective, but can also add to the efficiency of your process. During this webinar, Jan de Breet will discuss the extra benefits Yokogawa offers you with its ProSafe-RS Safety Instrumented System.
