ISA84 and IEC61511 have developed Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) standards for implementation of SIS worldwide. Many of the requirements have changed recently or are in the process of changing. Beginners, intermediate, or advanced practitioners of SIS can gain value and advance their knowledge in this area by attending this course. You will learn the basics of SIS, regulatory requirements around designing and implementing Safety Systems, how to perform calculations to meet the Safety Integrity Level (SIL) target and generate deliverables for systems integrator to program the system. The course goes through numerous examples of various designs, advantages and disadvantages of those approaches as experienced by SIS experts with extensive implementation experience. This course is beneficial for process safety coordinators, HSE managers, controls and process engineers to understand the value of having properly designed safety systems and generate best practices for their organizations as they develop new SIS programs or enhance existing ones.

The course includes the following topics:

  • Overview of SIS requirements
  • Identifying SIFs and SIL requirements
  • PM overview of SIL selection techniques (LOPA, risk graph)
  • Preparing a safety requirement specification (SRS)
  • Failure modes and failure rates
  • SIL calculation basics using simplified equations (Probability of failure on demand – PFD)
  • Calculating PFD of safety instrumented functions
  • SIL calculation workshop
  • Management of change (MOC) of SIS
  • Test plan development

Changes in Facility Siting Standards: API 752, 753, & 756

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
