Functional safety

Protection for people,

plant and environment

Operating a plant in the process industry brings many obligations and responsibilities for the owner. Processes have to be made as error-free as possible, potential dangers to people, the environment and the plant itself have to be reduced to the technically possible minimum. Comprehensive legislation and standards are constantly developing and changing, continually creating new explicit requirements that enterprises need to comply with. This applies not only to new projects - keeping conditions unchanged in existing plants can soon become an uncertainty factor.

RÖSBERG gives you orientation and reliability, for functional safety that is up-to-date and compliant with the required standards. We support you with an integrated view of the whole life cycle of your plant and PCT protection systems according to IEC/DIN EN 61511 and VDI/VDE 2180 - from the first consultation and assessment of your need for action, to engineering, implementation, inspection and documentation.


Our consultation offer

Risk analysis for clarity and structure

With us, you are on the safe side for compliance. By assessing the initial situation, we identify the basic need for action in your safety concept - whether it involves additions to functional processes, or your documentation simply needs bringing into line with required standards. Our experts will be glad to support you in the introduction or evaluation of your functional safety management system, and indicate how it can be optimized.

In our consulting services we provide

  • Assessment of your current situation regarding functional safety
  • Action recommendations for the measures that need to be implemented
  • Creation of documents and standards (functional safety handbook, intrinsic safety certificates, etc.)
  • Clarification of certification questions
  • Technical expertise in hazard assessment


The basis for reliable implementation

We know what we are talking about. Our many years’ certified experience in all aspects of automation in the process industry will benefit you at every stage on the way to your safety concept. We provide professional support for your interdisciplinary risk analysis using HAZOP or LOPA methodology, and support the development of appropriate solutions right up to the qualification of your safety system.

The services we provide

  • Support in multidisciplinary risk analysis (HAZOP, LOPA)
  • SIL classification
  • Specification, design and assignment of safety functions (SRS, SIF, SIS) and safety-related control systems (ESD / SSPS)
  • Verification, SIL calculation
  • Inspection regulations and inspection plans for initial commissioning, start-up and follow-up test
  • Qualification of safety functions and safety-related control systems (ESD / SSPS) as well as the safety system
  • Standard-compliant documentation.

Implementation, inspection, training

Quality from one source

So that everything runs smoothly: if you wish we will support you in the implementation of all functional safety measures, across the various trades and process connections - including TÜV-certified pre-commissioning testing or functional safety training for your personnel.

Training available at our Academy ranges from basics to certified FSE (Functional Safety Engineer). In this way we support engineering partners and plant owners in the qualifying of their employees as required by standards. We also offer additional support in specific practical seminars, for instance on “Burner Control”.

We will stand by you during the whole operational phase of the plant, for instance in the preparation, organization and documentation of all tests and inspections. So the functional safety of your systems is secured in the long term.

  • Initial inspection (functional safety)
  • Training: From an introduction to functional safety, to TÜV-certified Functional Safety Engineer (FSE)
  • Periodic inspection (Intrinsic safety, functional safety)
