The Rocky Relationship Between Safety and Security eGuide

Sponsored by ABB

Process control and safety systems have always followed one key concept: Separation. They were always separate and independent of each other. The safety system would be ready to kick in and take action no matter what the condition of the process control system.

Over the last few years, safety standards and certification requirements have changed. So have approaches to the design and implementation of safety systems – a fact that affects not only the replacement of aging systems, but also the selection of safety and control systems in new facilities.

Integrated Safety eGuide

Sponsored by ABB

Process industries are inherently hazardous, and maintaining safety in processes and operations has become increasingly complex and costly. But too often, companies have difficulty demonstrating a clear return on investment in their safety activities. With both safety and financial concerns being a high priority, those in the process industry sometimes struggle to reconcile them. 

This Control Engineering eGuide covers a recent white paper on how process industries can improve safety and profitability, without disrupting operations, and includes the additional informative articles regarding Integrated Safety:

  • Process safety what are the odds?
  • Analysis: Engineering values from the top down
  • Integrating emergency shutdown valves with a process control system
  • Developing People: Making operators more effective
