Safety Functional Requirement Specification (SFRS)

When a safety risk assessment has been completed, an SFRS can be used to review the recommendations and ensure that risk mitigation strategies are practical for your facility.

When developing the Safety Functional Requirement Specification (SFRS), a Rockwell Automation consultant will lead discussions with your safety, engineering, operations and management teams to verify that plans will achieve safety goals, enhance operations and will not impede production and maintenance.

The approved safety functional requirement and specification is typically used as the basis for risk mitigation engineering design. It will also be used as the basis for safety validation, which is the completion and acceptance phase of an upgrade project.

It comprises three steps:

Step 1
On-site review of the recommended mitigation options.

Step 2
Documentation of the agreed functionality together with integration details of new and existing technology required.

Step 3
Review of the initial mitigation design to determine if any changes are required based on the approved SFRS.
