The HIMA booth during the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, May 4-7, will showcase the latest comprehensive safety-related solutions for a wide range and sizes of offshore applications, including HIPPS, ESD and F&G.
“Throughout the industry there’s concern about the inherent safety of integrated control and safety systems from a single vendor. We think that concern is merited, and OTC is a great opportunity to discover the facts, hear recommendations from safety experts and compare offerings,” said Buddy Creef, North American Sales Director.
As an independent safety solutions provider, HIMA offers four safety platforms that can integrate with but remain physically separate from control systems. This freedom of choice enables offshore operators to select the best-performing BPCS and best-performing safety system, without worrying about common cause failures. With separate systems, operators also benefit from higher systems availability and reliability.
Offshore operators concerned about cybersecurity have another reason to make sure they comply with OSHA, EPA and international standards for independent layers of protection. An integrated system from a single vendor can negate the effectiveness of these protection layers and introduce security vulnerabilities in the same way it introduces safety vulnerabilities.
“HIMA is completely focused on helping clients create an island of safety for the ultimate in systems separation, diversity and safety,” added Creef. “We invite everyone to come experience Island Time with HIMA at OTC.”
