E.S.M. studied the safety features on high voltage transmission towers for the prevention of unauthorised access (i.e. climbing) of the structures.
E.S.M. has Control Systems Engineers and Functional Safety Specialists with expertise in planning and implementing functional safety on complex systems through the full asset lifecycle.
Functional Safety is part of the overall management of a system and relates to the reliability and integrity of a control system used as a safety function. It aims to detect potentially hazardous situations, analysing the inputs, processing logic and outputs that drive a system to a safe state. It also looks at the safe management of likely operator errors, hardware and software failures and environmental changes.
