Are you satisfied with your current Alarm Management?

Alarm management is one of the most critical functions of a SCADA system. If the alarm management is poor, operators may become inundated with more alarms than they can handle. This can result in crucial alarms being overlooked, incorrect diagnosis of problems, and delayed or inadequate responses to critical events.


Poor alarm management can lead to:

  • Missed or delayed responses to critical events

  • Costly downtime and reputation damage

  • Increased risk of safety related incidents

  • Unnecessary strain and stress on the team

Duplicate alarms can easily be missed and/or unclear

SAFEgroup Automation (SGA) recognises the significance of alarm management and collaborates closely with clients to enhance their alarm system. Our approach is practical and aims to provide the best tools. This ultimately enables frontline operators, technicians, and engineers to have an accurate understanding of their system and make informed decisions.
