Functional Safety is the management of the lifespan of a Safety System. This process ensures that the system is Functionally Safe throughout its operational life.
Lark are able to provide support and assist with the implementation of IEC 61508 and IEC 61511. These are the international standards for the Functional Safety of Electrical/Electronic/Programmable Electronic Safety Related Systems.
We are able to develop Functional Safety systems based on the SIL target set as part of a Risk Assessment procedure. Lark provide expertise in ensuring that all calculations are clearly referenced and illustrated using a ‘SIS loop’ diagram. These schematics show all of the vital details that are required by regulatory bodies such as the HSE when proving the strength of a system.
The Functional Safety services provided by Lark include the provision of safety systems for process industries up to SIL 3 and support to customers looking to meet particular directives, requirements or recommendations from industry organizations, insurers, or regulatory bodies.
Functional Safety is applicable to all industries and is increasingly in demand as manufacturers and end users look to further mitigate the associated risks.
