Safety and the Value of Risk Assessments

The control of combustion elements in a boiler system is similar to controlling an explosion. Within any process system, where specific elements need to maintain their prescribed balance, small miscalculations can be devastating. This is why safety is one of Synergy’s top priorities. While optimization and efficiency are of great importance, none of it matters if a system isn’t safe.

Regular risk assessments and timely inspections are essential in order to maintain plant safety. The illusion of a safe environment is often created by the fact that no harmful incident has happened. The time to consider a risk assessment is not after an employee or system has been severely injured, but before.

Like every other area of a plant, safety can be optimized for the greatest efficiency. Synergy’s safety measures, including our PLC systems and valve trains, have redundant controls to make sure that processes in a plant continue to operate optimally, even in the event that one small part malfunctions. In addition, we have perfected safety optimization to dramatically reduce nuisance trips.

The highest standard of safety is essential in a workplace to ensure the well-being of employees and equipment. That doesn’t mean you have to pay the highest price. Our combustion and engineering experts would be happy to perform an assessment of your plant and provide you with custom, optimized solutions for your safety, budget and goals.
