Course Information Sheet

Title Ref Date & Dur. Location The course provides an overview of the key concepts associated with Functional Safety Engineering, covering in depth the entire safety life cycle and will help you develop a thorough understanding of the Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) by covering Process Hazard and risk analysis, management of functional safety, SIL determination, Layer of Protection Analysis, basics of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) design and implementation requirements based on current and emerging standards and covers design verification techniques. Real life examples will be discussed to enforce the teaching. The content is well suited for managers, engineering professionals, technicians, and sales personnel who would like to formalize their knowledge base. You will be able to: Differentiate between process control and safety control Implement the ISA84 (IEC 61511) standard Evaluate process risk levels Select Safety Integrity Levels (SILs) for Safety Instrumented Functions (SIFs) using a variety of techniques Analyze the performance of different logic system technologies Analyze the performance of various sensor, logic, and final element configurations, as well as the impact of diagnostics, test intervals, common cause, system size, imperfect manual testing, and bypassing Determine optimum system test intervals Specify and select safety instrumented systems Apply the documentation requirements for process safety management, regulations, and industry standards
