in collaboration with the Health & Safety Executive

INTRODUCTION EEMUA 191 ­ launch of the new 2nd edition

Alarm systems are increasingly important in the safe management of plant and machinery. Where major hazards may be present, effective alarm handling is an area of continuing concern for the Health & Safety Executive (HSE). Since it was first published in 1999, EEMUA Publication 191 has become the globally accepted and leading guide to good practice for alarm management. A particular strength of the EEMUA 191 Guide is that it was developed by the users of alarm systems in industry. EEMUA 191 has sold thousands of copies worldwide, has formed the basis of training courses internationally, and has led to the production of related publications such as EEMUA 201 that deals with human-machine interfaces. The HSE says EEMUA 191 provides clear, and now `tried and tested' guidance ­ adding that its inspectors carrying out assessment and inspection activities may look for evidence that the principles and recommendations in EEMUA 191 are being or have been applied to alarm system design and management. HSE experience is that such application produces significant safety improvements as well as other operational benefits. At this meeting, the second Edition of EEMUA 191 is being launched ­ representing the first major update of this hugely popular and respected Guide. The HSE contributed to the original edition of EEMUA 191 and has been consulted on the new 2nd Edition. This guide is highly relevant to the process industries and also applies more widely. This meeting will explain the background and explore some of the aspects of better alarm handling as presented in the new second Edition of EEMUA 191.


This meeting will be vital for anyone who follows the current alarm management guidance in EEMUA 191 and wants to understand what changes have been introduced in the new 2007 edition, and why. This will also be an important event for anyone to attend who: has responsibility for safety & quality improvement through efficient and effective use of alarm handling systems works directly or indirectly with alarm systems in the chemical, food, pharmaceutical, petrochemical and other process industries, onshore and offshore oil and gas exploration sector, power generation and utilities, bulk storage and transportation, and related sectors.
