Industrial environments pose many unique risks to the safety and wellbeing of employees and the surrounding community and environment. Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) play an essential role in providing a protective layer around industrial process systems. Its purpose is to identify a specific hazard when pre-determined set points are breached and take the process back to a “safe-state.”
Whether working on upgrading an industrial facility or building a new greenfield facility, designing, installing and maintaining “failsafe” control systems and instrumentation is of the utmost importance. Establishing a Process Safety Management (PSM) program requires qualified experts in industrial safety systems and regulatory compliance. Beyond instituting a PSM program, maintaining and testing safety systems and practices should be an ongoing process to ensure that the safety processes and systems function as intended over its operational life.
Hargrove’s Safety Culture protects and promotes the wellbeing of each person who works with us and each person touched by our work. Hargrove’s SIS Specialists and Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) facilitators are seasoned and highly-trained, having completed the industry’s most rigorous and comprehensive Functional Safety Training Program to earn certification as TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety (FS) Engineers.
Our Team has many years of experience in the practical application of industry standards; we design and implement safety systems in the process industries daily (refining, petrochemicals, chemicals, oil and gas, and manufacturing). With senior members of our Team participating members of safety standard committees, we have a thorough understanding of industry standards and stay abreast of the ever-evolving regulatory requirements. Our Certified Functional Safety Engineers have developed a meticulous methodology for process safety, adhering to IEC 61508 / 61511, ANSI/ISA-61511-2018, and the entire Safety Lifecycle.
From building new systems, studying legacy systems, and recommending the most impactful safety changes, our team works with you to meet your safety needs. The Team at Hargrove includes:
Hargrove provides the full range of SIS design and implementation services. From program development to mitigation, reporting, and procedure writing, our Team can help ensure your facility meets regulatory requirements and best in class safety guidelines.
Hargrove performs hazard and operability studies (HAZOP) and layers of protection analyses (LOPA), participates in design reviews, calculates probability of failure on demand (PFD), performs criticality analyses, and tests on new systems. We help our clients install and maintain “failsafe” control systems for the full Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) – logic, actuators, sensors, and other control equipment independent of your basic process control system to ensure SIS functionality is not compromised.
We are experienced in a wide variety of platforms including HIMA, Schneider Triconex, Emerson DeltaV SIS, Rockwell AADvance and GuardLogix, Honeywell Safety Manager, Honeywell Fail Safe Controller (FSC), Burner Management Systems (BMS), Yokogawa ProSafe, Siemens Step7 Safety and Siemens (Moore) QUADLOG and more.
Our Team assists our clients with:
With Hargrove, you get the right experience from the right people in system integration working alongside you to meet and exceed your expectations. Working together as One Team – that’s Hargrove.
