Functional Safety; Alarm Management
Plant operation, and the operators response to alarms must be effective. On new and existing installations it is necessary to ensure that lessons learned have been applied to your alarm system to reduce the risk to personnel, the environment and the plant.
GPO can provide an improvement plan and an alarm philosophy and then work with the client to facilitate the alarm system changes. Previous experience has determined the most cost effective approach to the management of the alarm systems ensuring that risks are fully explored.
A typical project deliverable is expected to be:
- Alarm Management Plan
- Alarm philosophy
- A database file containing all of the alarms categorized and risk assessed
- Operators Alarm Response Manual
- Alarm system update
- Alarm test and repair strategy
- Project final report detailing findings and recommendations.
