Course description:

This course is specifically intended for valve and actuator manufacturers who are being asked to supply products with a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) capability.

Session 1 is an overview of hazards, risk and SILs to help attendees understand where a ‘SIL’ comes from and the necessity of a proper specification prior to design. Examples of safety instrumented functions in the process industry are given to illustrate the principles.

Session 2 concerns the safety-related aspects of the design of the ‘final element’ in the safety system and how to achieve the specified ‘SIL capability’. Reliability modelling, assessment and quality system requirements are all covered.

Session 3 includes an overview of the regulatory framework, IEC 61508 and related standards (such as IEC 61511) and the various approaches used to demonstrate conformity. (Session 3 may also include any remaining topics from session 2 if time did not permit them to be covered then).

Target audience:
The course is aimed at all those who are involved in the design and specification of valves, actuators and related accessories, such as design engineers, reliability and quality engineers, technical managers and product applications specialists.
