To plug in safety gaps, you have to identify them first

Ensuring robust levels of safety is both social responsibility and vital to your business strategy. But safety challenges are becoming increasingly complex. They evolve and multiply as your assets age. How do you reliably detect safety gaps? And, how do you identify safety investments that are not only efficient and cost-effective but will drive the sustainable success of your organization?

Operational safety needs a proactive approach

From eliminating hazards in the workplace to promoting safe behavior, safety is a mindset vital to your business success. Strong operational safety contributes to higher and more robust availability. A zero-incident reputation and effective safety programs can improve workplace satisfaction and boost retention. Low operational risk is instrumental in preventing reputational losses – a growing strategic concern in a connected world where a few keystrokes can shatter a brand’s global reputation.

The key is to be proactive. To put solid safety processes in place, start with a fact-finding mission at the heart of your application – where people interact with machine trains, engines, and equipment. Tap into the safety expertise of OEM partners intimately familiar with your assets, application, and market. Build on their insights to craft a strategy that fits your operational safety goals.

Ensuring machine protection optimizes availability

Machine safety is a critically important issue across all sectors – oil & gas, chemicals, power generation, and marine. Safety gaps are risk drivers for organizations as a whole. But protecting machines and safety-relevant processes in increasingly complex environments is a multidimensional challenge.

From remote monitoring to upgrades, choosing the right investments requires you to stay on top of the latest in R&D, monitor evolving certifications and standards, and track the safety options at your disposal. It’s an on-going effort.

There are ways to outsource the worrying. Your concerns overlap with those of your OEM. Benefit from the fact that your safety concerns are their safety concerns. The bonus? They know your engines, machine trains, and auxiliary equipment inside out.

Cybersecurity encompasses all layers of an organization

As industries make great strides in bringing smart and connected applications to life, leveraging digitalization and automation comes with a host of new challenges and requirements. Whether it is a hack attack from outside or a simple unprotected USB port on-site, vulnerabilities are everywhere. The problem all cybersecurity strategies face: To be effective, they must consider all levels, from component to plant, from network to organization. The dilemma is an abundance of choices. Cybersecurity solutions come in every size and shape. Some harness data, accelerate connectivity, and come with built-in layers of security. Others take the form of component upgrades with newer, more safety-aware, design iterations. Some solutions sterilize specific vulnerabilities. The challenges: to identify the solutions that best meet your criteria – and reliably assess their ROI.

Detect gaps early

safety-expertise Robust safety management systems and procedures are crucial in preventing incidents from affecting availability and performance. Remote monitoring is instrumental in detecting vulnerabilities early: Smart algorithms enable condition-based – even predictive – maintenance to prevent those incidents before they occur. Inspections are another tool in your safety toolbox. They complement monitoring solutions identifying safety issues remote monitoring solutions can’t see. Combined, they ensure high long-term safety levels.

In risk assessments, we assess risks and safety levels and issue recommendations to help you protect your assets and fulfill your operator obligations. Our experts collaborate closely with you to take the safety needs and business goals of your organization into account when we make recommendations.
