The company Engineering Safety Consultants Ltd., United Kingdom, is an accepted course provider for Safety Instrumented Systems trainings of the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Program.
Why attend the course?
There is an increasing dependence on Safety Instrumented Systems to achieve tolerable risk levels in the process sector. In addition there is an increasing need to justify that the risk levels that have been achieved are tolerable. Subsequent to incidents such as Texas City (USA) and Buncefield (UK), there has been a greater emphasis on standards such as IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.
The standards cover not only the design requirements of the systems themselves but also the development of the Safety Requirements Specification in terms of the Safety Instrumented Functions to be performed and the Safety Integrity Levels of those Safety Instrumented Functions.
The management of functional safety and the competence of those involved in any Safety Lifecycle activity are also specified in the standards.
The course is aimed at those who have responsibilities within the scope of IEC 61508 & IEC 61511. In particular:
Fundamentals of functional safety #1:
Fundamentals of functional safety #2:
