Regulatory Analysis - Safety

It's critical to protect not only your assets, but the people around those assets. To suggest appropriate risk reduction measures, SKF performs regulatory assesment for Instrument Protective Function (IPF) using method such as Safety Integrity Level (SIL) and considers:
  • Consequences of failure
  • Exposure probability
  • Possibility of avoiding the hazard
  • Demand rate

Based on the level of risk and acceptability, function test frequency is calculated as a result of the probability of failures. Calculations account for levels of redundancy in safety systems to assure maximum availability of protective equipment.
