Individual and Personal Support

Safety is not a one-time affair or a quickly implemented permanent solution - it is a continuous and dynamic process. Therefore, it is important to consider the overall lifecycle of the plant from the initial analysis through planning and installation to operation and retrofitting or modernization. In this way, you reduce the costs incurred and minimize the safety risks, avoidable downtime and unexpected follow-up costs over the entire lifecycle. This ensures the reliability, availability and performance of your plants.

Success through Economic Solutions

HIMA was one of the first companies in the world to be TÜV-certified  for its Functional Safety Management. We actively analyze, create and support your safety management, plant processes and operations throughout the lifecycle to ensure maximum safety. To this end, our experts rely on methods such as:

  • safety reviews 
  • gap analysis 
  • hazard and risk analysis (HAZOP)
  • layer of protection analysis (LOPA) or risk graphs
  • safety checklists
  • failure modes, effects and diagnostic analysis (FME(D)A)
  • fault tree and event tree analyses. 

We keep an eye on conformity with standards and the state of the art as well as on the operation and availability of your plant.
