Capita PROjEN have a team of experienced TUV certified engineers, who using a lifecycle approach can ensure your compliance with IEC61508 and 61511.
A Functional Safety Lifecycle Plan is the key to managing your Functional Safety responsibilities. It is a statement of intent to use standard BS EN 61508 and its associated sector implementation standards (e.g. BS EN 61511) as a lifecycle method of achieving Functional Safety. The development and execution of the functional safety lifecycle is overseen by a Functional Safety management team usually comprising client and specialist engineers (such as Capita PROjEN).
The Functional Safety Management Team ensures that, for each new plant and plant modification, hazards are identified, risks evaluated and the appropriate risk management measures determined. In addition to the functional safety management team, a Functional Safety Assessment Team will be established, whose duty is to undertake and record formal functional safety assessments at critical stages in the lifecycle of the process/facility concerned.
Capita PROjEN also offer a range of Functional Safety training courses, for more information on the training we offer please click the below link.
