Webinar: Business Case for Digitalisation of Process/Functional Safety
  • Date From 14th April 2021
  • Date To 14th April 2021
  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 15:00 BST. Duration: 1 hour.


Cost-effective compliance with the Safety Lifecycle Standards (IEC 61511 and ISA S84) is a requirement for most process-industry companies. In part, compliance means keeping SIL verification, protection layer design, requirements specs, cause and effects, and functional test plans continuously updated with operations and maintenance data. This is anything but cost-effective using tools in place since the 1980's. aeShield digitalises the entire lifecycle, updates compliance documentation continuously and provides tangible productivity gains in the process. 

The presentation primarily targets process and functional safety practitioners in end-user, EPC and consultant companies. Also of interest are operations and maintenance staff responsible for operating process facilities with risk-reduction safeguards in place.
