The need for separation of redundant safety systems is well established; however, what constitutes an adequate separation is not. Adequate separation depends upon the nature of the hazards involved, and the vunerability of the protected equipment. This paper categorizes the most prevalent hazards and explores separations techniques, with respect to equipment vunerability, to adequately ensure safety functions.
