Immediate visibility of overrides
An override, bypass or inhibit is an arrangement that interrupts a safety device or system from performing its intended function. While overrides are commonly used to enable essential work to be carried out, when an override is applied the level of protection is reduced which increases the risk in operating the associated asset.
Through using override monitoring software from kanepi, operators, supervisors and managers have immediate visibility of all overrides at their asset(s), including time of activation, purpose, expected duration, time active and person responsible for activation. All required information is there, at your fingertips.
Meet compliance & HSE requirements
The kanepi override monitoring application (OIM) can help operations comply with safety standards and government regulations. It is easy to configure and use, and automates monitoring and control. Best practice HSE guidelines on the usage of overrides can easily be applied, including; setting manageable limits for total number of overrides in place, maintaining an override log and history for audit purposes, ensuring visibility and control of all active overrides and minimising active duration.
Relevant across industry
OIM from kanepi is industry independent and applicable to most processing industries, including oil & gas, petrochemical, refining, mineral processing and industrial processing sectors. Typical application includes monitoring process start up overrides and maintenance overrides in ESD, SIS and F&G systems. With OIM, companies can also monitor field based overrides, such as ‘bridges’ / ‘jumpers’, locked open / locked close valves, PSVs, pressure switches, valve jammers etc.
OIM will provide your facility with everything you need to know about override usage, to enable a safer and more productive workplace.
