GEO – Acrylics Safety


GEO Speciality Chemicals UK Ltd is a leading manufacturer of naphthalene sulfonate products used as dispersants in the concrete admixture, gypsum, oil field, ceramics and polymerisation industries.


GEO is adapting the standard across its manufacturing plants.

The requirement was to assess the Acrylics Plant for compliance to IEC 61511 and to upgrade the safety systems where necessary.

IEC61511 is a recognised standard for functional safety.


HFL provided TUV certified safety engineers to perform all the safety lifecycle activities for the plant compliance.

The project included a site safety plan, SIL assessments, design verification, installation, commissions and liaising with the regulatory authority.


GEO’s acrylic plant is now fully compliant with IEC 61511.

The functional safety documentation has been successfully reviewed by the regulatory body.

Haden Freeman has been at the forefront of functional safety lifecycle activities for many years and our expertise ensured GEO provided the Regulator with a first class demonstration of compliance.
