Alarm systems have developed over the last decade from hard wired indicators which were costly to configure compared to the cheap and highly configurable SCADA interfaces commonly implemented today. This transition has largely gone unregulated by company standards leading to the blanket implementation of alarms for everything and anything available without fully considering the impact on the operator. An alarm management program is essential ingredient to ensure panel operators receive timely and high quality information.
Three important parts of a site program include an alarm management site standard, to be able to assess the performance of the current alarm system and to review existing alarms for their relevance. Safety Solutions can provide support at any stage through the alarm management process, from producing reports benchmarking the extent of alarm issues through to helping to develop a site philosophy and facilitation of alarm reviews.
