Software provider and system integrator join forces to deliver safety system monitoring platform

ACM Facility Safety partners with Autopro Automation Consultants to deliver safety software for process industries allowing real-time risk visualization.

12/09/2013


ACM Facility Safety and Autopro Automation Consultants have established an integration partnership agreement focused on providing real-time risk visualization solutions to process industries in Canada. The partnership is designed to deploy SafeGuard Sentinel software, a solution that allows users to monitor their process safety risks in real-time, and provide Risk Performance Indicators (RPIs), equipping management to track process safety performance proactively without incidents.

Billing itself as the largest independent automation engineering specialty organization in Canada, Autopro says it is well positioned to integrate SafeGuard Sentinel into the wide range of existing control systems and industrial information systems which need to be monitored to ensure process plants are operated with visibility into their level of risk.

Ken Bingham, CEO at ACM, feels the partnership with Autopro is the perfect fit in ACM’s ongoing mission to make the world a safer place, “Autopro’s experience with safety systems and integration are a powerful combination that will allow us to meet the safety needs of our clients. The end result is that plants using this technology will operate more safely, resulting in fewer process upsets, reduced environmental damage, reduced damage to assets, and most importantly, fewer injuries.”

David Nakaska, president of Autopro Automation Consultants, adds, “Risks take many forms within operating facilities from safety and environmental related risks to equipment damage, process upsets, production interruption and damage to corporate image. ACM has developed a unique product in Safeguard Sentinel which can make a real difference in achieving safer and more productive facilities by identifying risks in real-time. Autopro is delighted to add our expertise in industrial automation, functional safety, industrial IT and systems integration to complement ACM’s process safety and risk experts in the design and implementation of this high value solution.”

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
