Designing for Safety & Reliability (DFSR) is focused on protecting workers and operational integrity while creating a cost-effective inspection and maintenance program. Through the use of Reliability Technologies, the need for constant fixing of things that aren’t broken is replaced with the ability to continuously monitor and inspect critical assets. This requires fewer staff to focus on each asset and allows a higher number of inspections, increased data sets to analyze performance and condition, and a clearer ability to plan any necessary repairs.
Companies that Design For Safety & Reliability operate at a safer and more efficient level than those that don’t. Providing the ability for technicians to run their inspection rounds on their own, in a closed-panel environment that would provide an increased level of safety from arc flash, electrocution, etc., DFSR also decreases the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for each asset.
