Functional Safety Capabilities

With in-house TUV certified Functional Safety experts and engineers, Synertec can provide services that cover the full lifecycle of a plant. Synertec can provide safety services to meet clients’ needs from the definition stage of the safety requirements through to the project implementation and continuing on into the longest part of the lifecycle – ongoing maintenance and auditing.

Functional safety covers critical systems that are independent of the control system and mitigate defined risks to people, assets, business or the environment.

Synertec can provide services across the entire safety lifecycle including:

Definition Stage

  • Functional Safety management capability assessments
  • Functional Safety assessments
  • SIL assessments
  • Safety requirement specifications
  • Conceptual design
  • SIL verification
  • System reliability studies

Project Stage

  • Project lifecycle implementation
  • SIL design and documentation
  • SIL testing
  • SIL validation
  • SIL verification

Post Project Stage

  • On-going maintenance
  • Auditing of systems
  • Management of change systems
  • De-commissioning

Relevant Experience

Safety systems are found across most industries. Synertec can provide services in areas such as:

  • Machine safety systems
  • Burner management systems (BMS)
  • Emergency shutdown (ESD)
  • Fire and gas detection (F&G)
  • High integrity protection (HIPPS)
  • Pipelines
  • Turbine safeguarding systems
  • Wellhead control panels
  • SIS (Safety Instrumented Systems)

Synertec engineers are well versed in the functional safety lifecycle activities as identified in standards such as IEC 61508 and 61511.

Synertec has the capability to provide support at every stage of the Safety Lifecycle. The table below provides a brief overview of our capabilities at each stage:
