A plant that is unreliable cannot be safe.  As a plant becomes more reliable it becomes a safer working environment.  Safety incidents decrease because less work is required on the equipment, fewer equipment failures occur which creates unsafe conditions, etc.  Reliability breeds safety!

How is your facility using reliability efforts such as Condition Monitoring to create a safer working environment? 

Have you had discussions with your Safety Department about the value that reliability efforts such as CM provide to the overall safety of your plant?
