All-Round Plant Safety: How to Avoid Knowledge Gaps

It is not easy for plant operators to stay up to date with functional safety. Increasing digitization, new working methods, and changing standards all complicate the process. It is important to focus on ensuring that important know-how about safety equipment and software is retained. But how do plant operators achieve that?

Best Practices

Automation of Proof Testing

With modern safety systems and the "digitization" of field device information, test sequences can now be largely automated. In practice, this means considerable simplification and potential savings.
