ABB’s new SafetyInsight is a suite of digital software applications that supports companies operating in high hazard industries across the energy and process sectors throughout the entire lifecycle of process safety management (PSM).
Operating as a central source of information, the software digitalises early Engineering Technology (ET) data to create a process safety digital twin, and uses this data to give context to the vast amount of data generated through IT and operational technology (OT) systems.
By combing IT and OT data with ET data, SafetyInsight enables valuable engineering data (such as HAZOP and LOPA reports) to be digitalised and readily accessible by operation and maintenance teams in simplified, intuitive visual formats.
Ongoing risk assessments can then be based on digitalised safety data. The addition of the IT/OT data provides near real-time updates, enabling the accumulative impact of operation and maintenance activities to be visualised on a dynamic risk matrix, to further aid risk assessments and management of operational risk.
