Functional Safety


Delivering a Safe & Compliant Plant

Safety Engineering & Design Services

Safety is at the forefront of everything we do today, plant safety is no different. People’s lives, livelihoods, plant assets and reputations are at stake. Bilfinger UK have decades of experience in design, implementation, commissioning and maintenance of Safety instrumented Systems (SIS). With our extensive knowledge, we can help you comply with functional safety best practice and keep your systems free from unacceptable risk.


Functional Safety Management

Functional safety management defines all technical and management activities during the life cycle of a SIS. The life cycle concept ensures that projects are scoped, managed, executed, verified and validated in the correct manner by competent personnel. Almost half of all life cycle failures take place during the project specification stage.

Bilfinger UK can assist at this stage to ensure customer specifications are fit for purpose and will provide a compliant and reliable system. To guarantee compliance with the life cycle concept, we ensure all projects are rigorously PVA’d – Planned, Verified and Assessed.


Functional Safety Services

Our services apply throughout the entire life cycle and include HAZOP & LOPA studies, hardware and software safety engineering, independent verification, testing and commissioning of safety systems. All carried out by TUV certified functional safety professionals.

Bilfinger UK‘s electrical & instrumentation design and installation expertise includes DSEAR hazardous area classification and design and CompEx trained installation personnel. We provide these services to customers in highly regulated industries within many different industries.
