Courtesy: ACM Facility SafetyACM Facility Safety's SafeGuard Sentinel safety monitoring software is designed to continuously measure, monitor and alert operations and management to process safety risks. The software also delivers contingency plans that can be executed immediately to address issues and reduce potential risk. 

SafeGuard Sentinel enables plants to reduce risk and identify critical safeguards during operation, and it provides information on which to base strategic decisions, including monitoring of safety performance indicators. 

SafeGuard Sentinel runs on a Windows-based server in a plant network, and can be accessed by any device capable of running a browser, including DCS workstations, operator terminals, tablets and smartphones. 

The SafeGuard Sentinel server connects through OPC and ODBC, allowing it to gather information from a variety of systems including DCSes, PLCs and PACs from all major control system suppliers. Other sources of data typically include safety systems, historians, SCADA systems, maintenance systems, operator logbooks and workflow tracking systems. 

Depending on the network setup, SafeGuard Sentinel can be hosted in the plant DMZ, which allows access at a business level. SafeGuard Sentinel only needs one-way communication from the various systems to gather data, thus preserving plant security.

SafeGuard Sentinel integrates data from these various systems to create an all-inclusive database of information including Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) Studies and Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA). SafeGuard Sentinel uses this information to provide situational analysis and contingency plans for process safety situations.
