Functional process safety involves identifying potential hazardous events that can trigger a chain reaction that could lead to severe or catastrophic consequences. This online training seminar explains the requirements of the international standards IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 for functional safety instrumented system and covers the entire life-cycle of safety instrumented systems, from determining what risk control systems are required through to decommissioning. This also includes the separation of basic process control systems and safety instrumented systems (SIS), layers independent protection (LOPs), how to determine safety integrity levels (SILs), technology choices, and field device issues.
This GLOMACS Safety Instrumentation and Emergency Shutdown Systems online training seminar primarily focuses on establishing conceptual and detailed design requirements, hazard analysis techniques, safety requirements specification, and the commissioning, operating, and maintenance procedures.
This online training seminar will highlight:
- Hazard and Risk Reduction Studies
- Explaining Technology and Equipment Choices
- Safety Requirement Specifications for an SIS
- Selection of Field Devices (Sensors, Programmable Logic Controllers and Valves)
- Establishing Operation and Maintenance Procedures
This online training seminar is to acquaint instrumentation and control system engineers with the essentials of the IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 safety instrumented systems standards and, how they relate to the safety life cycle of developing and maintaining safety instrumented systems. The fundamental tools will enable delegates to evaluate, design, install, and maintain Safety Instrumented Systems (SISs) and determine their Safety Integrity Level (SILs) requirements.
At the end of this training seminar, you will learn to:
- Understand the requirements of the international standards IEC 61598 and IEC 61511
- Apply the IEC 61508 Safety Instrumented System Development ‘Safety Life Cycle’ model
- Determine the Safety Integrity Level (SIL) using risk assessment methods
- Understand the specifications of emergency shutdown protection requirements
- Establish specification requirements for the sensor, programmable logic controller, and valves
- Follow Management of Change (MOC) procedures for control of future SIS changes
This online training course will utilize various proven online learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. The training course is conducted Online via an Advanced Virtual Learning Platform in the comfort of your choice location.
In addition to the professional development of staff, the organization will prioritize resources for developing and managing safety instrumentation system projects, including:
- Implementing safety instrumented systems that optimises production and safety
- Use well-proven risk assessment and analysis for competent SIS development
- More effective implementation in upgrading existing emergency shutdown controls
- Improved confidence in the prevention of hazardous incidents
Attendees will be able to apply skills learned from this training at a practical level to identify, develop, and implement safety instrumented systems.
- Delegates will gain skills to be able to select technology choices that meet IEC 61508 / 61511
- By using these skills, you can competently implement the SIS safety life cycle
