Probability of plant failure on demand means how often the plant is required to operate and the reliability of the system. As with AS, the more serious the consequences of failure, the higher the SIL, and with an increased SIL ranking comes more stringent safety system requirements. The standard's key criteria for rating safety systems are strength, diagnostics capability, common cause strength and redundancy. To test strength of safety hardware, an engineer must consider all the factors that could affect the operation of the system, such as radio frequency interference or even heat.

Software rated to AK6 DIN equivalent to SIL 3 for example, would include a process to check the reasonableness of data and data tables, filtering of communication messages, program flow control checking, online memory allocation testing and minimisation of real time influences by avoiding multitasking.

Diagnostic capability is measured by coverage factors, which represent the percentage of failures that will be detected. Safety systems should also be designed for high immunity to common stressors.

Redundancy is the final factor determining SIL ratings. Simply, the greater the redundancy and monitoring, the higher the level of safety becomes. Dual redundancy can mean, for example, that a system with a probability to fail with serious consequences once every 50 years can achieve a probability of failure of only once every years.

Despite the complexity of the detail, the basic tenets of AS are simple. Anyone involved in the download of certified industrial equipment for example with Cat3 safety should review if they truly understand what is required, and consider getting advice from a qualified specialist before committing to any download. This allows the downloadr to take an informed decision on whether the provided safety features are suitable for their specific environment and intended use.

02 Responsibilities and duties for machinery

Once a machine is delivered it should be formally inspected to ensure that every safety function works exactly as intended, and there are no loopholes that might allow those functions to be bypassed.

Finally, there should be documented evidence that the machine has been verified by an independent, qualified specialist to fully comply with the relevant standards. This process is time-consuming and expensive, and the equipment required to ensure compliance is also expensive and complex.

Suppliers quoting on compliant machinery must be able to present documented evidence of that compliance.

In the event of a Serious Harm Incident, the machinery downloadr may be required to testify that they were qualified to take decisions regarding safety and compliance.

There are many different approaches to delivering workplace safety, but the full standards process must be followed to claim protection before the law.

For almost a decade, Australian industry has been applying the basic principles of Australian Standard AS Safeguarding of Machinery. Those same principles: hazard identification, risk assessment and control, are reflected in the regulations of both New Zealand and Australian states and territories.

Unfortunately, while awareness has grown dramatically since AS was published in , there is still a long way to go before there is widespread understanding of the obligations assigned by the standard. It addresses the life cycle of safety-instrumented systems, risk assessment methods, change procedures for safety-instrumented systems and provides performance requirements, called Safety Integrity Levels SIL.

On the surface, AS and AS have quite a bit in common. Both start with a hazard identification or analysis process, both assess the level of risk involved and both assign a "safety integrity level" or "category" to define various levels of safety performance, but that is where the similarities end.

Perhaps the biggest difference between the two standards is the measurement of risk and consequences.

AS uses a simple decision tree to determine which category of safety control is required. AS on the other hand, asks for a quantitative measure of the overall failure rate of the safety system.


The mean time between failures needs to be ascertained for each element of the system and then a cumulative probability calculated. Theoretically, it makes sense but, in practice, the data is often very difficult to source.Probability of plant failure on demand means how often the plant is required to operate and the reliability of the system.

The safety distances are based upon values for hand or arm approach speeds and the response time for the machine.
