How Safe is Safe Enough? Webinar recording now available

Members of the Process Management & Control Special Interest Group can now replay a recording of Ron Bell's webinar from 11 January 2017, setting out the key elements that form the foundation for determining what is deemed safe in the context of Safety Instrumented System (SIS).

From 1992 until 2006, Ron Bell was head of the Electrical and Control Systems Group in the Health and Safety Executive. In 1998 he was appointed as one of the five UK members of the binational Channel Tunnel Safety Authority which is a post he held for 13 years. He chairs one of the two IEC working groups responsible for IEC 61508 (the international standard dealing with safety critical systems) and in that capacity was responsible for both the development of the first edition of IEC 61508 and the subsequent second edition. In 2005 he received the IEC 1906 Award for his work on functional safety and in particular IEC 61508.
