Calgary, AB, June 2014 - ACM Facility Safety™ is pleased to announce a partnership agreement focused on providing education and innovation through the donation of 25 SafeGuard Profiler software licenses for the next three years (valued at $200,000/year) to SAIT Polytechnic’s Instrumentation program. In addition to the licenses, ACM will provide training onsite or in-house along with technical support for SAIT’s instructors and IT personnel.
A Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) is a method of putting numbers to HAZOP data to determine if a system is safe, has too many alarms and trips, or requires a SIL rated system. Come and learn how ACM and SafeGuard Profiler can build a bowtie to compress HAZOP information and perform an analysis that will save you operating money and operator hassle.
Major incidents in the chemical and process industry have resulted in companies adopting new strategies to incorporate the use of performance-based standards into their overall safety philosophy for dealing with risk reduction methods.
