Functional Safety

Functional Safety Engineering

At Paradigm Engineers, we understand the importance of safety in the workplace. That’s why we offer comprehensive safety audits for plant and rail-mounted stockyard machines.  

We have over 15 specialists with extensive experience in the electrical and control aspects of machines and machine auditing, making us authorities in this area. In addition, Paradigm Engineers can develop audit procedures and checklists tailored to the site and client’s specifications.  

Control System Audit

Control and Protective Device Audit (CAPD)

Our team of experts will work with you to create a safe work environment for your employees. We use functional and operational testing to ensure that all your devices operate as intended.  

At Paradigm Engineers, we provide a complete assessment of all control and protective devices, including: 

  • Lock-off stops 
  • Limit switches 
  • Anti-collision devices and systems 
  • Tilt switches 
  • Microwave sensors 

In this article for the Australian Mining review, Applying Functional Safety to Rail Mounted Mobile Machines, we discuss a systematic risk management process and implementation of a rugged, well designed safety system to manage these risks. 

Control System Software Audit

This is a systematic review of the control system software installed on a site to ensure modifications are implemented correctly, change management procedures have been followed, and no unauthorised overrides are present.  

In the case of balanced rail-mounted stockyard machines, the control system auditing is an essential part of the owner’s statutory obligation to implement a system of checks and inspections to ensure that the machine achieves its projected life without structural failure. Completing scheduled audits will also help identify other areas of concern, such as maintenance requirements, spares holdings, and training needs.  

The benefits of completing regular control system audits are: 

  • Checks modifications are made correctly and in accordance with change management procedures
  • Prevents unauthorised overrides from being installed 
  • Ensures that our rail-mounted stockyard machines are working correctly and meet all requirements with our comprehensive checks and inspections system 
  • Identifies other areas of concern such as maintenance requirements, spares holdings, and training needs
