In designing process safety systems, “more” is not necessarily better. Advanced technology has created a mindset to over-install hardware to prevent or to reduce the risk of failure in hydrocarbon processing facilities. Several international standards set guidelines on equipment/instrumentation life cycle systems. There are better approaches in developing a safety instrument system (SIS) that can achieve a balanced safety function system and still meet all mandatory requirements. Managing process hazards safely Major plants contain hazardous processes. Therefore, adequate precautions are required for process safety. It is essential to apply different techniques to reduce proces
