basic functional safety course

Phase of Analysis

-Risk concepts and how to reduce them with layers of protection.

-What is an independent protection layer (IPL)? SIS principle of independence and shared elements. Examples.

-Risk Analysis Techniques. 

-HAZOP Methodology and Risk Graph

  • Definition of nodes and identification of deviations.
  • Definition of Causes and Consequences.
  • Evaluation of the consequences.
  • Identification of safeguards (IPLs) and assigned credits.
  • Is a SIS layer necessary?
  • Determination of «SIL» with Risk Graphs.
  • Examples with Excel template.

-LOPA methodology

  • Identification of initiating events.
  • Frequency of causes and conditioning modifiers.
  • Identification of non-SIS IPLs and PFDs.
  • Calculation of the scenario frequency.
  • Comparison with the tolerable frequency defined by the Plant. Example of the risk matrix.
  • Is a SIS layer necessary? SIL assigned to the SIF.
  • Examples with Excel template.

-Exercises: HAZOP, Risk Graph and LOPA.

-Safety Requirements Specification (SRS).

Documentation: PDF + Excel templates + SRS + videos

Phase of Design & Implementation

-Most used architectures and examples.

-Principles of safety system design. Safety versus Availability.

-IEC requirements and key parameters to calculate the SIL.

-Data sources of failure rates.

-Formulas to calculate PFDavg and MTTFS.

-Examples of real industry SIFs:

  • Design assumptions (transmitter configuration, used models, architecture degradation, etc.)
  • Example of tank level.
  • Example of pressure vessel.
  • Calculate the SIL achieved by Logic Solver.

-SIL Verification Report. Example.

Documentation: PDF + Verification report + videos

Phase of Operation & Maintenance

-Concepts and reasons for maintaining the SIS.

-Main clauses of IEC 61511:2016 on Operation & Maintenance.

-Use of the bypass and its impact.

-Proof Tests and their impact. Examples.

-Repair of the SIF and its impact.

-SIS modifications.

Documentation: PDF + videos

Review of the main concepts

Documentation: 10 pages

Aimed at

Students, technicians, designers, system integrators and engineers who want to learn about Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) in the process industry.

The objective is to acquire the necessary knowledge to start working in Functional Safety. If you already have knowledge, the course will help you better understand the concepts and give you a real insight into the importance of the different phases of the life cycle.

Documentation for the student

  • PDF files with the contents.
  • Excel Templates (HAZOP, LOPA, example of SRS).
  • Example of SIL Verification Report (MS-Word + Annexe)
  • Possibility of downloading some videos.
  • Certificate.
