Jeremy of TUV Rheinland Singapore: Continuous Support of Safety Services for Process Industries amid COVID-19

Background:  COVID-19 is affecting every industry, including Process Industry’s Safety Management. SafetyCase.sg has recently conducted an interview with Jeremy Gan, one Business Development Executive of TUV Rheinland Singapore. In this interview, SafetyCase.sg intends to find out how the industry stakeholders can jointly combat COVID-19 situation in the aspects of Process Safety and Safety Case.

SafetyCase.sg: Hi Jeremy, thank you for your time with us today. Can you tell me something about yourself?

Jeremy : Hi SafetyCase.sg, it is my pleasure, thank you for the opportunity. I work in the Industrial Services team of TUV Rhineland Singapore mainly supporting Safety Assurance for the Process Industry. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have a chance to intern at TUV Rheinland Singapore back in 2018. It was in my short stint with TUV Rheinland that made me realise I am interested to contribute to the safety aspect of Singapore process industry, particularly in the aspect of Safety Case Regime.

SafetyCase.sg : Can you elaborate more on TUV Rheinland’s services in support of Safety Case Regime?

Jeremy: TUV Rheinland, originated in Cologne Germany in 1872, is with business focus in quality and safety. In Singapore, our industry services teams focus on Safety Services for the process industry in line with local regulations and best engineering practices.  With a rich experience of more than 400 Safety Case Projects done globally, we can support all aspects of Safety Case development in Singapore including MAPP, PHA, SHMS, EPP and QRA, as one registered QRA consultancy with NEA (National Environmental Agency). In addition, we support in Functional Safety (SIS/SIL/SIF) application for process industries according to IEC 61511 and Explosion Protection services in line with ATEX/IECEx.

SafetyCase.sg : Can you name some of your clients and some project names you have conducted?

 

Jeremy : I am sorry that I’m unable to share the project names to Non-Disclosure Agreement signed with companies. However, I can share some of our local client list includes regulatory body and industrial giant like EMA, Shell, Evonik, SRC, CPChem and so on.

 

SafetyCase.sg : Does the COVID-19 affect the safety services for process industry  greatly in Singapore?

 

Jeremy : Yes, indeed it does. However, we still offer continuous support for our clients to my best ability, though we have to reschedule some auditing jobs.

 

SafetyCase.sg : How does your team manage to continuously support your clients?

 

Jeremy : We tap on the advancement of technology, go digital and go remote.  As it is our utmost priority to ensure the well-being and safety of our customers and employees, with the support of the clients, we now conduct our services remotely by telecommuting and working from home.

These services include Gap Analysis, Training, Auditing, Verification, Assessment and workshop in the aspects of Functional Safety (SIS/SIL/SIF), Safety Case (HAZOP/QRA/LOPA) and Explosion Protections (Atex/IECEx).

Proof Test of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) according to IEC61511

Based on the presentation on Proof Test of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) according to IEC 61511 by Functional Safety Expert Mr. Chen Zhenkang of TUV Rheinland Singapore,  at the ASEAN HSSE conference dated  18th Sep 2019.

  1. Introduction: Process Industry & IEC61511The process industry sector, such as Refineries, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Specialty Chemical, Semiconductor, Tank  Storage, Power Plants, Pulp and paper, Water Treatment, FPSO and other oil and gas platforms, is becoming increasingly reliant upon complex safety systems for safety management.IEC 61511 is a technical standard which sets out requirements for the specification, design, installation, operation and maintenance of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS), so that it can be confidently entrusted to achieve or maintain a safe state of the process. Its latest revision is edition 2 ( 2016) with amendments.

    3 important S-words in IEC 61511 are SIS, SIF and SIL.

    SIS: Safety instrumented System

    is a system of hardware and software used to implement one or more SIFs to reduce risk.

    SIF: Safety Instrumented Function

            is designed to achieve a required SIL and typically consists of sensors, logic solver and final elements.

    SIL: Safety Integrity Level

            is a discrete level (1,2,3 or 4), allocated to each SIF for specifying the safety integrity requirements to be achieved by SIS; is a property of a SIF, NOT a property of a system, sub-system, element or component.

    The co-relationship between these 3 terminologies (SIS, SIF, SIL) are shown in Figure 1.

  2. Proof Test: a SHALL requirement in IEC 61511“IEC 61511-1: 2016, 16.3.1” clearly states Proof Test is a SHALL requirement for the entire SIS including sensor(s), the logic solver and the final element (s).
  3. Why Proof Test?                                                                                                                                                               Safety functions, like all other functions,  are associated with failures, thus we need to understand and manage their failures.Analysis λDu (Dangerous/unsafe undetected failure) really bothers us: it will  make that the safety system cannot perform the desired action.Since λDu cannot be detected by diagnostics, then how to control it?

    Proof Test shall be performed to reveal the λDu .  It is just like the mock test in school, which helps the students to reveal their knowledge gap which cannot be identified by themselves (undetected) while will fail them in the coming major examinations (dangerous).

     

  4. What is Proof Test ?In practice 100% of “as new” condition is not achievable for other than low-complexity safety-related systems. But this should be the target.As a minimum , all the safety function which are executed are checked according to the safety requirements specification.
  5. When and How to Proof Test ?Phase 3: SIS Safety Requirement Specification (SRS)

    Requirements relating to Proof Test Interval, Proof Test Implementation and functions enabling Proof Test…

    Phase 4: SIS Design and Engineering

    Design for appropriate proof testing and if necessary online proof testing…

    Phase 5: SIS Safety Validation

    Safety Validation shall include proof test…

    Phase 6: SIS Operation and Maintenance

    Planning and procedure of Proof Test shall be developed for each SIF…

  6. TÜV  Rheinland & Functional Safety
    • TÜV Rheinland is a well-recognised certification body for the Functional Safety Products, Functional Safety Applications and Functional Safety Management System.
    • TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Program is the only worldwide extended vocational training program in the area of Functional Safety where knowledge and competencies are approved of by a third neutral party and where certificates are issued.
    • As for the process industry sector, our functional safety service covers all safety life-cycle phases based on IEC 61511:2016 and IEC 61508:2010.

Safety Case Assessment Guide regarding Safety Instrumented Systems and IEC61511

Based on Safety Case Assessment Guide by MHD.

For Source

For technical discussion:  

3. Q:  Safety Case Assessment Guide requires MHIs to demonstrate competency in SIL level
determination, SIS design and maintenance of EC&I systems. Does competency refer to specific
functional safety competencies e.g. functional safety certifications, functional safety? Or would
competence gained through on-the-job-training and work experience in relevant areas such as
operation / maintenance / process safety and design be acceptable?

A: Relevant staff must have good understanding of the EC&I systems in order to implement the
requirements and maintain the systems.
To demonstrate this, MHIs could use a Training – Core Competency Matrix, which matches
training and experience to competencies needed for SIL implementation, SIF design, installation
and maintenance. The demonstration should include how the MHI determined the level of
understanding, training and education needed to perform those tasks.
Functional safety certification is not a requirement but would be useful for the demonstration of
EC & I competency.

4. Q: Can third parties be engaged for EC&I activities?
What proof/documentation is required in the safety case to demonstrate that the third party is
competent to do the work, especially for past projects?

A: Yes, third parties can be engaged.
The MHI will need to demonstrate competency for third parties e.g. relevant competencies and
experience in proof testing and SIS maintenance; basic understanding and training in functional
safety, especially in requirements for record keeping and SIS proof test procedure.

5. Q: What proof/documentation is required in the safety case to demonstrate survivability of critical
utilities and adequacy of backup e.g. UPS?
 Are there standards/guidelines for utilities?
 Is an instrument designed to fail safe on loss of utilities good enough?
 Can MHIs adopt in-house guidelines instead of IEC61511?

A: There are a range of codes, standards, good engineering practices and guidelines for the
design/maintenance of utilities that MHIs can take reference from.
Examples of critical utilities that could impact on safety are compressed air, N2, steam etc. In the
safety case, MHIs should describe the utilities, their sources, how loss of utility is detected and
actions taken upon loss detection. Information on utility specifications (e.g. compressor capacity),
availability of backup systems, utility recovery, maintenance, inspection and testing should be
provided. Documentation such as test records and diagrams would support demonstration in the
safety case.
Designing fail-safe instruments is good engineering practice and enhances reliability. However,
the use of fail-safe design does not remove the need for utility survivability. Instead, it should be
seen as a complement to utility design. The SIS should comply with IEC61511.
MHIs that adopt in-house guidelines for non-SIL control must demonstrate that in-house
guidelines are comparable to good industry engineering practices and guidelines

6. Q:  Does Safety Case require MHI to apply IEC61511 to:
– relay based systems, PLC and DCS with loops used for safety protection
– general alarm systems and Priority 1 Alarm systems used for safety protection

A: All systems deemed to be SIS and SIL-rated should adhere to IEC61511. For alarm management,
refer to EEMUA 191.
Beyond the scope covered by these standards, good engineering practices shall apply. For
example, selection and placement of detectors should be considered and could be addressed by
detector mapping.

7. Q: What proof/documentation is required in the safety case to demonstrate adequacy of non SILrated system?

A: The safety case should include the identification of SIFs, SRSs, inspection records etc. MHIs can
refer to HSE’s Operational Guidance on “Management of instrumented systems providing safety
functions of low / undefined safety integrity”.

8. Q:  Do MHIs need to adhere to all requirements in IEC 61511?

A: MHIs could determine and implement the relevant requirements. However, if the MHI claims to
comply with IEC61511, all requirements in the standard will need to be complied with.
MHIs adopting alternative standards will need to provide justifications.

9. Q: IEC 61511, Section 8.2.4 calls for “A security risk assessment shall be carried out to identify the
security vulnerabilities of the SIS”. Security risk assessment is new for the process industries in
Singapore. What is the timeline for MHIs to complete the assessment?

A: Safety case covers industrial risks that could lead to major accidents. Although security is beyond
the scope of SCAG, MHIs should ensure that their systems are secure and safe from cyber
attacks. Currently, demonstrations of security and cyber attack prevention are not required in
safety case.

10. Q: Fire and Gas detection has been taken out of the scope of IEC 61511. The general understanding
is that the PFD for detectors can be influenced by external environmental conditions (e.g. wind
direction), thus, SIL rating of detectors would not be sufficient. Would it be acceptable to use
detector mapping to demonstrate sufficient coverage by detectors of a SIF, as part of SIL
verification?

A: F&G systems is within the scope of IEC61511. Detector mapping is good practice to demonstrate
sufficient detection coverage.

WSH (MHI) Regulation survey for one research project by SIT

A very good day to you. My name is Jasmine and I’m an undergraduate from Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), pursuing a degree with honors in Pharmaceutical Engineering. Currently, I am doing a research project on the new workplace safety and health (WSH) regulations targeted for Major Hazards Installations (MHI) that was released last September – WSH (MHI) Regulation. The objective of my project is to come up with a guideline to help the process industry in Singapore understand the regulatory requirements better so as to utilize/apply the company’s functional safety systems to meet those requirements.

Other than information on the new regulation and how to meet the requirements, the guideline will also include a study of the best relevant functional safety engineering practice from other countries as well as local functional safety practices.

In order to gauge how useful the guideline will be for the industry, this survey targets to gather opinions of professionals working in the process industry. All feedback will be greatly appreciated and thank you for taking your time to provide your valuable input.

About

The safety case should demonstrate the adequacy of measures the operator will implement to control risks associated with major incidents that may occur. The safety control measures that governed by IEC61511 plays an important role to prevent and mitigate the risk. As part of the safety control measures, functional safety refers to the use of instrumented systems to implement safety functions to achieve risk reduction. Hence, control & instrumentation technical aspects in safety case, is a key elements to be considered by MHIs. IEC61511 is recognised as best practice pertaining to Functional Safety and since the release of IEC61511 edition 2 in 2016. Cyber security assessment will also be discussed and its importance as part of the risk assessment to eliminate catastrophic consequences caused by cyber-attacks.
