Safety programs are often viewed as a vital part of the business, thus perceived as a necessary cost of doing business.
Now companies are looking to capitalize on opportunity costs and help make safety programs more profitable, moving from traditional functional safety, which is reactive by nature, to process safety; a more holistic approach focused on productivity and performance.
Safety standards are changing and becoming more demanding. The newest version of IEC-61511 uses more prescriptive language regarding the performance of safety systems. Meaning that safety systems need to be verified to ensure they are operating as designed, and if not, that appropriate retroactive action is taken.
Schneider Electric can help: SIF Manager software tracks KPIs automatically and alerts management to items that require attention. Empowering users to identify risk gaps due to underperforming safety functions and address them proactively.
Big Data, advanced analytics and other value-focused offers can help you determine if your safety functions are maintained and operated as designed, which can help you increase your profits on safety systems and operations.
