Digitalization of Functional Safety with Added Value
Functional Safety needs a digital transformation: #safetygoesdigital. This means not only automating existing processes, but also creating added value for companies.
Digitalized Safety and Security can reduce costs, increase plant availability, and provide optimization data. HIMA has a holistic approach for the Digitalization of Functional Safety.

Functional Safety – The Potential of Digitalization for Operators and EPC
The challenges regarding the digitalization of functional safety are faced by everyone. With the maxim "Digitalization of Functional Safety with Added Value", HIMA is bundling its activities to get one step closer to the future.
In this video Peter Sieber, Director Strategic Marketing of HIMA Group, explains the individual aspects of the #safetygoesdigital program and points out how customers will benefit.
No Safety without Security
Safety and security are inextricably linked. Technologically, however, these areas must be strictly separated from each other. HIMA achieves this with the "Security Environment for Functional Safety", which maintains security throughout the entire life cycle of the safety solutions. This reduces complexity and lowers investment and operating costs.
Seamless Data Integration
HIMA Safety Engineering solutions support seamless data integration, from risk analysis throughout the engineering process to maintenance and retesting:
- Documenting all decisions
- Creation and implementation of detailed engineering
- Use of automatic test programs
- Creation of plant documentation meeting functional safety requirements
HIMA Safety Engineering reduces operating costs and increases plant availability and efficiency.
Data Becomes Usable Information
HIMA digitalization solutions support permanent compliance with standards and regulations by automatically transforming safety-relevant data into usable information. This helps to ensure compliance with the norms and standards that are vitally important for functional safety. Thus leading to increased empowerment for driving a continuous improvement process for functional safety. Such improvement will lead to reduced cost while achieving higher productivity.
Make Processes more Efficient
HIMA solutions enable more efficient processes in the following areas:
- Review of existing asset inventory (hardware and software).
- Detailed identification of changes
- Verification of changes
- Automated testing at the device level
- Review of the design basis of safety functions
Risks and costs for functional safety are minimized and plant availability is increased.

The HIMA Safety Platform
In the digital age, the number of risks is continuously increasing. It is difficult for plant operators to foresee correlations and consequences. We developed the HIMA Safety Platform – the world’s first scalable safety platform with built-in automation security.
