Overview

A truly integrated safety management system will deliver trips and safety interlocks that deliver a high degree of safety without being costly and overdesigned. This book explores how to gain the benefits of more integrated safety systems, and how to develop systems within the framework set out by international standards, including IEC61508 on safety instrumented systems.
This book also provides a solid grounding in the role played by Hazops (Hazard and Operability studies), explaining how to carry them out, how to understand their findings, and what to do next. The section on Hazops summarises the identification of risk reduction requirements, and how to build a risk reduction strategy into an integrated safety system.
A number of practical exercises support the reference information and allow you to test your understanding of the material in the book.
This book aims to bridge the discipline gap between hazard studies and the provision of safety-related alarm and trip systems. It provides training in hazard and operability methods (Hazops) and in the principles of safety instrumented systems as defined by international standard IEC 61508.
