LEADERS IN PROCESS AND FUNCTIONAL SAFETY SUPPORT
Our expert team harmonizes efforts of process and functional safety by providing functional & process safety, alarm management, and cyber security services.
Are you concerned about how both the safety and production reliability of your plant are affected by your current safety instrumented system (SIS) designs? It’s one thing to meet functional safety standards, it’s another to do it with justified results in both cases. We pride ourselves in supporting our clients with optimum designs that operations and maintenance personnel are pleased to support.
With potential international cyber threats to plant controls, no one should be left exposed. If you don’t have the “in between” competence to bridge IT and control system domains, please give us a call. The good news we hope to provide you is that you don’t have significant vulnerabilities, so don’t delay in getting such tranquilizing feedback.
Process Safety Management
Do you feel your PSM professionals are harmonized with your safety instrumented systems (SIS) designers? Since process and functional requirements are linked together more than ever, it helps to have an alliance with SILverstone who blends well-managed solutions. Whether is a crucial multi-disciplined project or setting up long-time compliance support, we’re here to lend a hand.
Many current process facilities now recognize that too many alarms have been implemented due to low cost process control technology. How can you efficiently scale them back and manages their long term lifecycle? Such support activities by SILverstone and our channel partners take you to your targeted destination quickly and then we equip you for the long run.
Our team provides critical support to align clients' Process Safety Management (PSM) programs with Safety Instrumented System (SIS) designs.
As regulations and technology evolve, becoming increasingly complex, organizations commit considerable resources to ensure projects meet PSM standards (OSHA 1910.119) and functional safety RAGAGEP (Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices) (ISA 84 / IEC 61511). Our mission is to optimize process and functional safety with associated equipment design, which has been achieved by developing strategic alliances with leaders in engineering design and software development.
Our multi-disciplined expertise helps us harmonize clients' efforts to meet standards, assure critical task accountability, and prevent delays in scheduling by minimizing redundant tasks and design deficiencies.
By delivering continuity throughout the project life cycle, we help clients integrate process and functional safety efforts to achieve verified compliance with optimal efficiency.
With proven experience and multi-discipline capabilities, our strategic alliances with Keystone Engineering Inc. and exida make SILverstone the clear leader providing integrated process and SIS managed solutions.
