Functional Safety Management

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

The FACILEX® Functional Safety Management (FSM) solution adds the Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) design process to the Risk Based Process Safety suite. Now, with the addition of this new application, process and functional safety compliance can be achieved on the Microsoft 365 platform.

Functional Safety Management

Gateway has configured 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 are 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 singular purpose of the FSM process is to ensure critical SIS projects fully comply with ANSI/ISA 84/IEC 61511:2018 functional safety standards.  These measures help to avoid common systematic execution and documentation flaws encountered in many fast-paced SIS designs.

During the project’s lifecycle, the FACILEX® FSM tool provides a framework for:

  • Walking a team through the extensive range of action items in the FSM and SIS lifecycles
  • Analyzing a facility’s SIS design and other forms of safety protection
  • Enforcing critical task accountability of both process and SIS design disciplines
  • Optimizing scheduling by minimizing redundant tasks and design deficiencies
  • Managing the key records required for OSHA PSM compliance and RAGAGEP
