Senior Process Safety consultant Herman Jansen is a TÜV Certified Functional Safety Expert, teacher of the HVK-educations of PHOV and Kader BV. He is member of the Dutch SIL-platform. He started his career as Instrumentation Engineer of ABB Lummus Global in 1983. In 2003, he joined the (TNO) SSC organisation and became skilled in Process Safety. In 2011 he started Consiltant BV.
During facilitation of HAZOP/LOPA sessions, Herman is aware that the risk reduction of risk reducing provisions could be limited.
The starting point of SIL verification studies is the process, the P&ID’s, the HAZOP report, the Risk Assessment. Without knowledge of the process, the hazards and the risk, the SIL verification is incomplete.
Herman is assisted by process safety consultant (and TÜV Certified Functional Safety Engineer) Jeroen Mijnarends-Jansen. He worked for several years at Dow Chemical and AkzoNobel as process engineer and process safety engineer. He always worked directly on the chemical plant, which resulted in a lot of knowledge on operational level. Within Consiltant he is leading HAZOP/LOPA sessions, SIL-verifications and executes simulation of PLC application programs.
Office manager Linda Peters takes care of all office activities (administration, training, correspondence).
The Functional Safety Management System of Consiltant BV is certified in 2019 by Dekra (SIL 4).
