Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced that it launched Process Safety Suite, which centralizes and synchronizes disparate process safety data to eliminate errors and inconsistencies, and thereby creates a complete, real-time view of safety risk for all levels of an organization. The new safety solution integrates aeSolutions’ aeShield process safety software with Honeywell’s Safety Builder, Process Safety Analyzer and Trace solutions, enabling increasingly resource-constrained process safety staff of large industrial facilities to efficiently monitor process safety while helping to reduce operational costs.
HPS signed a reseller agreement for aeShield with the software products division of aeSolutions, a consulting, engineering and system integration company that provides industrial process safety, cybersecurity and automation lifecycle solutions and tools. Process Safety Suite is a response to the time-intensive, manual procedures that most large industrial facilities use to manage process safety today.
Process Safety Suite allows safety personnel to monitor process conditions by comparing actual performance from the plant historian with pre-defined hazard conditions from the risk analysis, and take immediate action to minimize risk. It also facilitates analyses, such as Process Hazard Analysis (PHA), Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA), Safety Requirements Specification (SRS), and Safety Integrity Level (SIL) calculations and classifications.
Mark Sen Gupta, ARC Advisory Group, commented, “End users need better tools to address process safety lifecycle management and are still faced with creating a solution piecemeal in order to prove compliance to safety standards. ARC Advisory Group believes Honeywell’s decision to integrate aeSolutions’ offering to create a more holistic safety lifecycle solution will reduce data disjointedness for many customers and provide more timely insight into the state of their safety systems.”
