Risk & Safety Services

Risk / Safety Services
The SIS is a critical aspect of process control, and is fundamental to an organization’s ability to mitigate risk related to the health, safety, and environmental (HSE) impacts of their operations.

The SIS is also part of a corporation's risk reduction strategy to mitigate the likelihood of HSE impacts resulting from process upsets or equipment failures. With the current focus on corporate responsibility and sustainability, it is more important than ever for organizations to ensure that they have skilled resources to support their SIS with the intent of maintaining safe operations.

In recent years, a number of safety standards (for example IEC 61508, IEC 61511, and ANSI / ISA S84.00.01) have created stringent requirements for a variety of systems, including emergency shutdown, burner management, and fire and gas. We help our clients to ensure their SIS implementation, maintenance and operation comply with these safety standards.

mCloud’s functional safety experts will work either as single analysts and facilitators or with their partners within multi-disciplinary teams to conduct process hazard analyses, layer of protection analyses (LOPA), and safety integrity level (SIL) assessments.

Emergency Shutdown Systems
mCloud offers a complete review, design and implementation services for emergency shutdown systems and standby power, to ensure our clients’ facilities are in compliance with government regulations and that they meet corporate health, safety and environmental standards.
Functional Safety Assessments & Audits
A functional safety assessment is an investigation based on evidence to judge the ability of a safety related system to achieve the required functional and integrity requirements. mCloud’s functional safety professionals can either lead the FSA for a client or participate in a client lead FSA.
mCloud's Smart Process team has considerable experience engaging in HAZOP and CHAZOP analysis in conjunction with automation system projects that we are involved with.
LOPA / SIL Determination
mCloud’s automation and SIS professionals and facilitators participate in process hazards analyses, LOPA, and SIL determination sessions to either add their functional safety expertise to the customer’s multi-disciplinary teams or lead them through the process.
Proof Testing
As a requirement of IEC 61511, SIFs must be tested at predetermined intervals and the results documented and maintained. mCloud offers the service to end users to assist them with regular proof testing of their SIFs and provide the documentation in compliance to the standard.
Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS)
Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) play a critical role in protecting many industrial processes and automation systems.
