Richard Automation offers experienced, in-house resources to manage process safety projects while adopting a lifecycle approach needed to comply with current industry standards. These services are based upon proven methodologies for addressing design, operation, maintenance, testing and change management associated with safety instrumented systems (SIS) as defined by current ANSI/IEC-61511 and ISA-84 standards. No matter which approach is utilized, our engineers are available to provide the leadership and engineering services associated with a complete and quality SIS solution.

We provide engineering and consulting services that address the SIS and the plant’s overall security program. The activities focus on identifying potential hazards and risk assessment and mitigation to reduce the likelihood of events that could potentially have a negative impact on a plant in terms of environment, personnel health and safety, and asset protection. Just as process, industrial safety, and security are crucial to establishing and maintaining a plant or worksite’s safe operation, cyber-security has become a necessity in today’s technology-driven marketplace.

RAI has documented experience in achieving compliance with the applicable industry and client-specific functional safety standards by establishing a strong working relationship with our customers that is facilitated by open and timely communications. We pride ourselves in our ability to understand and adapt to the processes that are unique to clients’ safety system programs. By engaging our clients’ Process Safety Management groups, we integrate their methods into the RAI SIS process and in many cases provide validation for management.
