Functional Safety

Minimising risk for safe and secure operations

Secure and resilient systems are critical to industrial operations.

Businesses are looking to implement automatic safeguards and protection systems which help to reduce risk whilst keeping their people safe and assets operating safe and efficiently.

Most process plants have a control system at their heart, controlling all aspects of their processes, but what is controlling that control system?

Autonomous Standalone Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) silently monitor the operation of the basic control systems, only operating when the control system goes beyond its normal operating parameters. The SIS may go a lifetime without needing to operate on 'demand' thus, the integrity of the SIS needs to be assured.

For many of our customers, typically operating in highly regulated industrial environments, every unexpected event or minute of downtime can cost many millions of pounds, result in wider penalties or regulatory fines, and cause irreparable reputational damage.

Safety at the heart of everything we do.

From stand-alone Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) which offer a layered approach to protection (reducing plant operating risks to a reasonably practicable level) - to the protection of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) from cyber threats, safety is at the heart of everything we do.

Our independently accredited lifecycle and functional safety management system helps us to design, build and realise SISs from Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 1 up to SIL3, and we are also accredited for installation, commissioning, and overall validation in accordance with IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.

We have a number of TUV certified functional safety engineers who deliver specific tasks from the lifecycle and, in response to cyber threat, we ensure that cyber security is a fully embedded part of our functional safety activities.

A proven track record

We have a proven track record of designing, delivering, and supporting safety, non-safety and security systems to customers working in industries including nuclear, power generation and utilities where resilience is mission critical.

As an independent systems integrator, we can engineer SISs using a range of technologies such as relay-based logic, programmable platforms, and hardwired systems to meet your specific requirements.


We take our responsibilities for the delivery of safety related systems very seriously.

Our functional safety solutions are designed, rigorously tested, and implemented in nuclear, power generation and utility sectors with a clear focus on delivering the demanded level of functional safety.

We design, build, implement, test and support safety systems that interpret complex safety requirements and comply with

We have been independently assessed for Functional Safety by CSA Group and have Suitably Qualified and Experienced Personnel (SQEP) accredited to Technis and TUV standards.
