Webinar: Functional safety management of installed SIS

Webinar: Functional safety management of installed SIS
  • Date From 1st May 2020
  • Date To 1st May 2020
  • Price Free of charge
  • Location Online

Functional Safety Management is a key requirement of good practice standards (eg IEC 61511 for the process industries) for managing safety instrumented systems (SIS) to minimise systematic failures during the lifecycle. Functional safety management requirements are defined in good practice standards. However, the standards are focussed on new SIS and it is not clear how to apply the standards to installed SIS whether they be recently installed or legacy. Guidance has been developed through the Chemicals and Downstream Oil Industry Forum (CDOIF) in colloboration with the regulator HSE to define how to manage installed SIS. This webinar will set out the background to the guidance and some of the key requirements.
