Functional Safety – The Potential of Digitalization for Operators and EPC

The challenges regarding the digitalization of functional safety are faced by everyone. With the maxim "Digitalization of Functional Safety with Added Value", HIMA is bundling its activities to get one step closer to the future.
In this video Peter Sieber, Director Strategic Marketing of HIMA Group, explains the individual aspects of the #safetygoesdigital program and points out how customers will benefit.

Safety and Security

No Safety without Security

Safety and security are inextricably linked. Technologically, however, these areas must be strictly separated from each other. HIMA achieves this with the "Security Environment for Functional Safety", which maintains security throughout the entire life cycle of the safety solutions. This reduces complexity and lowers investment and operating costs.

Enduring Compliance

Data Becomes Usable Information

HIMA digitalization solutions support permanent compliance with standards and regulations by automatically transforming safety-relevant data into usable information. This helps to ensure compliance with the norms and standards that are vitally important for functional safety. Thus leading to increased empowerment for driving a continuous improvement process for functional safety. Such improvement will lead to reduced cost while achieving higher productivity.

A solution to drive safety compliance and​ efficiency


Make Processes more Efficient

HIMA solutions enable more efficient processes in the following areas: 

  • Review of existing asset inventory (hardware and software).
  • Detailed identification of changes
  • Verification of changes
  • Automated testing at the device level
  • Review of the design basis of safety functions

Risks and costs for functional safety are minimized and plant availability is increased.

Exploiting the Potential of Safety Lifecycle Digitalization

Plant operators are facing challenges: shortage of skilled workers, internationalization, operating permits and pressure to increase productivity and efficiency. A new and holistic approach to digitizing the safety lifecycle now opens up new potential and helps to overcome the challenges. The technical paper compares the processes of a conventional and a digital Functional Safety Management System (FSM). Learn how you can achieve savings of up to 70% through digitalization.


Digitalization of Functional Safety: The Next Step in the Evolution of Your Processes

Read in this whitepaper why the digitalization of functional safety is an important step in the evolution of your processes. And why digitizing functional safety means not only improving the safety function, but also improving your processes overall.
