M.A.C. Solutions, developer of the ProcessVue® suite of alarm management software, is hosting an educational webinar on Alarm Enforcement on 26th September 2018. The webinar session on “Alarm Enforcement or not? ” will be hosted by Ian Brown, Alarm Rationalisation and Services Manager at MAC Solutions (UK).
Alarm Enforcement or not? (26th September 2018).
Alarm Management is a multi-faceted project. An Alarm Philosophy and design guidelines must be produced, a Master Alarm Database must be created and maintained, performance monitoring, maintenance, testing, training, … the list goes on.
And don’t forget about auditing. How do we know and ensure our alarms are set as they should be? You need Alarm Enforcement, or do you?
MAC Solutions are presenting a series of Alarm Management webinars during 2018, and this webinar (Alarm Enforcement- Or not?) will focus on what Alarm Enforcement is, and on some of the pros and cons of Alarm Enforcement, so you can decide if you want or need to implement it on your site or not.
The webinar should appeal to a wide range of process industry plants, particularly Upper and Lower Tier COMAH-regulated or FDA-regulated sites. These include oil & gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, power stations, food processing and water companies. It doesn’t matter what the customer’s process is or what type of plant-wide control systems they have in place. If there is a need to manage and resolve alarm issues on site, the webinar can offer useful advice.
Ian Brown, Alarm Rationalisation and Services Manager at MAC Solutions (UK) comments: “Alarm Enforcement is not a requirement in the alarm management standards. If implemented for the wrong reasons because you’re told ‘you should’, alarm enforcement may instil a warm feeling that all is well with your alarm system; when in fact, your management of alarms may be totally out of control.
So, do you ‘need it’ or must you ‘have it’? For those companies that are unsure about whether they need enforcement or not, the webinar is a great starting point in your decision-making process.”
