UKPIA publishes gap analysis and self-assessment module

As part of its commitment to process safety1, UKPIA has published a Gap Analysis and Self-Assessment Module on the use of operators in SIL1 Safety Instrumented Functions. These tools have been developed with the involvement of member companies' experts, and independently reviewed by Human Reliability Associates. The self-assessment tool is not intended to provide assessment against current good practice, but to represent a shared goal of achieving excellence in the area of operators who form part of a Safety Instrumented Function. Reference should be made to the legal caveats on usage, included in the foreword of this module.
