Hazard management systems

In some sectors, security has a high priority. This applies to critical infrastructures, key sectors and large parts of the public administration. Here, extensive security measures are implemented at different levels.

In many other companies, the potential consequences of having an inadequate level of security are either not considered at all, or not considered enough. Failing to do so in effect means allowing the existence of an entire company to be endangered. Even when this realisation filters through to those in charge, it’s often only in connection with the costs.

It thereby always pays not to look at hazard and safety management exclusively from a cost perspective. Rather, it represents an important part of corporate value creation. A hazard management system (HMS) optimises the use of personnel and technology and helps to avoid follow-up costs. If an HMS works properly, the operator can choose from a wide range of possible technologies and products from different manufacturers. This ensures economic independence from individual suppliers. 

We would be happy to advise you on how to make hazard management systems part of your corporate value creation.


HMSs receive, store and process messages and data from different technical security systems. These are, for example, individual systems for hazard prevention, building control technology and plant automation.

Unconnected systems, a wide variety of manufacturers and completely different hazardous situations: this not only sounds confusing – it is confusing. Precisely in the event of a hazard, however, it is particularly important that you not only recognise hazards, but also assess them correctly in order to be able to initiate suitable measures. An HMS makes it possible to control security-related systems by connecting the individual components via a central software interface. One or more software components then operate on one or more computer systems via a man-machine interface. The HMS can also perform functions of alarm-receiving facilities, summarise their information and link them to other information, such as master data and alarm plan data. 

This has a whole range of advantages, because at the company location the individual skilled craftspeople are connected and can interact with each other. This approach also works across several locations and, if appropriate, even across national borders. 

Security is not something static: security concepts for buildings and systems change, facilities are expanded and new technology components are added. Thus, a hazard management system has to evolve with such developments and integrate upgrades.
