This training focuses on functional safety aspects for process, oil & gas, petrochemical and chemical industries according to IEC 61508 / IEC 61511. This includes the complete safety lifecycle in the context of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) projects.
These courses comprise 3 days of classroom tuition and practical guidance, for understanding and mastering the application, principles and requirements of Edition 2 IEC 61508 & Edition 2 of IEC 61511 for SIS. We also include many fundamental topics that we know you need to understand, but are not covered in the standards. Practical exercises will be performed throughout the course based on real life examples. There is a 4 hour competency examination on the last day.
Who Should Attend
Instrument Engineer, Process Engineers, Process Safety Engineers and Safety Engineers as well as senior Operating and Maintenance personnel who are involved in any of the safety lifecycle phases for safety instrumented systems from hazard and risk analysis through design of shutdown systems/fire and gas systems to installation, commissioning, testing and maintenance.
In accordance with the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Program:
Participants should have a minimum of 3 years of experience in the field of functional safety and a University degree or equivalent engineering experience and responsibilities as certified by their employer or engineering instituition.
Key Learning Objectives
- Process hazard analysis and associated risk management using the most popular and internationally adopted methods and tools
- Requirements for a Safety Requirement Specification (SRS) and shown how to undertake appropriate cost effective designs for Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) and Safety Instrumented Functions (SIF) and how optimal test and maintenance strategies for them can be achieved
- Application software requirements for safety instrumented systems (SIS) and the relationships between hardware and software architecture
