The interactions between the design and application of instrumentation and safety are many and diverse. The correct utilization of instrumentation for monitoring and control reduces risk. An obvious example is a fire detection and control system, but even a simple cistern control which prevents a water tank from overflowing affects
overall safety. Any instrumentation which contributes to maintaining the designed status of an installation can arguably affect safety. However, instrumentation can increase the danger in an installation, usually by being incorrectly designed or used.
Accident avoidance is a discipline to be cultivated, careful documentation tends to be a valuable aid, and common sense is the aspect which is most frequently missing.
The majority of engineers cannot experience or have detailed knowledge of all aspects of engineering, and safety is not different from any other factor in this respect. The secret of success must therefore be the need to recognize the danger so as to know when to seek advice. This research paper has attempted to provide the background for recognizing the need to seek expert advice; it is not comprehensive enough to ensure a safe design.ENGINEERING DESIGN, INSTRUMENTATION AND SAFETY PRECAUTION IN INDUSTRY.pdf (484.2% u)
