Functional Safety Management

The purpose of the Functional Safety Management (FSM) process is to ensure projects meet PSM standards (OSHA 1910.119) and functional safety RAGAGEP (Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices) (ISA 84 / IEC 61511).

During the project’s lifecycle the FSM business process provides a framework to:

  • Analyze a facility’s Safety Instrumented System design,
  • Manage the key records required for OSHA PSM compliance and RAGAGEP,
  • Enforce critical task accountability,
  • Optimize scheduling by minimizing redundant tasks and design deficiencies

Gateway can rapidly configure FACILEX® to initiate an FSM project, generate action items linked to analytical tools, business rules, process checklists, forms, reports, etc. All of the tasks necessary to conduct an FSM process can be generated, assigned and tracked throughout the project lifecycle. SharePoint’s best in class document management platform enables secure, enterprise-wide access to the FSM records and data, thereby enhancing corporate knowledge and safety.

The diagram above shows the Functional Safety Management business process rendered into a lifecycle. During each state in a lifecycle, participants complete action items. Once all the action items in a state are completed the business object is promoted to the next state onward to completion.
