Honeywell rolls out software platform to enhance safety risk assessment
Process Safety Suite combines aeShield software with Honeywell Safety Builder.
Honeywell has announced the launch of Process Safety Suite, which centralises and synchronises disparate process safety data to eliminate errors and inconsistencies. The software platform creates a complete, real-time view of safety risk for all levels of an organisation.
The new solution integrates aeSolutions’ aeShield process safety software with Honeywell’s Safety Builder, Process Safety Analyser and Trace solutions, enabling large industrial facilities to efficiently monitor process safety while helping to reduce operational costs.
Honeywell 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.
“The aeShield and Honeywell technologies work together to integrate critical steps in the process safety lifecycle,” said John Rudolph, president Honeywell Process Solutions. “The result is an enterprise-wide risk identification and reduction capability that is unique in the industrial process safety market.”
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 minimise risk. It also facilitates analyses such as process hazard analysis, layer of protection analysis, safety requirements specification and safety integrity Level calculations and classifications.
“We’re delighted to work with Honeywell to create a new industry approach to process safety,” said Mike Scott, president, software products, aeSolutions. “By connecting design assumptions to real-time operating data, users can start to view process safety as a profit centre that proactively and cost-effectively removes risk to the business.”
