Rebekah Reilly |
Functional safety specialist at Aurecon, Adelaide - Australia As Tino's student in the HIMA TUV Functional Safety Course held in Perth in the first week of March 2009, I was very impressed with the way he delivered the course with much precision and concision in just a short space of 3 days! His unique teaching style was both so effective and captivating that it tended to generate individual's self-interest of striving to learn, think and comprehend the subject in greater depth. His vast practical experience had made possible for him to single out salient aspects of the subject which he delivered with such powerful and repeated exertion that made the sink-in-the-heads process almost a certainty. He has also demonstrated the good quality of being a personal and caring coach to his fellow students on an individual's need basis.

Rebekah Reilly
Rebekah Reilly is an Electrical/Control Systems Engineer working in Aurecon's Adelaide Office. She has broad design experience through her involvement in a range of infrastructure, industrial and energy sector projects. Rebekah has particular skills in safety instrumented systems, and is a certified TUV Functional Safety Engineer. Currently working as an Electrical Engineer, she has a Bachelors of Engineering (Computer Systems) Hons, Flinders University, 2004. Since starting with Aurecon, Rebekah further developed her skills in electrical/control systems and worked on specialising in safety instrumented systems and functional safety. She undertook on the job and formal training in the Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) review process, and obtained additional qualifications including her TUV Functional Safety Engineer, certificate 1822/09, and recognition as a Chartered Professional Engineer, from the Institute of Engineers Australia. Rebekah has worked on energy sector projects featuring safety instrumented systems analysis, realisation and commissioning. Part of her speciality in functional safety has lead to facilitating risk assessments workshops according to the HAZOP, CHAZOP and Machine Safety methodologies for various clients around Australia. The purpose of these workshops is to review a design or existing plant in a systematic manner to identify potential hazards and operability problems. The role of the facilitator is to lead a workgroup representative of the designers, owners, operators and maintainers through the risk assessment process. Facilitating risk assessments takes a balance of interpersonal, organisational and technical skills. Rebekah found that being mobile in the earlier parts of her career was key in obtaining development opportunities that would not have otherwise been available. In her first 12 months working for Aurecon's Adelaide office, Rebekah also travelled regularly to assist in improvement's to the control system and alarming at a power station. The following year she relocated to Whyalla to work in an Aurecon Hatch site office for almost two years. She also recently completed a three month secondment to an Aurecon Hatch project office in Brisbane to assist in the control system development for a coal terminal. With a strong background in functional safety and risk assessment, Rebekah is now back in Adelaide leading a key project. The project is reviewing the requirements for upgrading turbine and boiler safety systems. The project involves hazard and risk analysis work, and is expected to lead into the full specification of the replacement for the Burner Management System on a range of gas-fired steam turbines. Rebekah initially considered engineering on the suggestion of her Physics and Chemistry teacher in Year 12. All medical career options having been ruled out by an aversion to needles and blood; she visited the Flinders University Engineering open days and was impressed by the final year projects demonstrating simple robotics and control loops. Once Rebekah started studying, she found the course required a strong foundation in mathematics and physics to allow understanding of the more practical subjects such as 'Electrical Machines' and 'Measurement and Control'. A strong mathematical understanding has also been necessary for the risk analysis component of work she now undertakes at Aurecon.
