Most of today’s computer controlled industrial processes involve large amounts of energy and have the potential for devastating accidents. Reliable, well-engineered safety systems are essential for

Protection against destruction and loss of life. This course is an intensive practical and valuable exposure to the most vital, up-to-date information and practical know-how to enable you to participate in hazard studies and specify, design, install and operate the safety and emergency shutdown systems in your plant, using international safety practices. This course will provide you with a broad understanding of the latest safety instrumentation practices and their applications to functional safety in manufacturing and process industries. This course could save your business a fortune in possible downtime and financial loss.


The objectives of the course are to:

  • Expand your practical knowledge in the application of safety instrumented systems (SIS) as applied to industrial processes
  • Provide you with the knowledge of the latest standards dealing with each stage o the safety life cycle from the initial evaluation of hazards to the detailed engineering and maintenance of safety instrumented systems
  • Give you the ability to plan hazard and risk assessment studies, then design, implement and maintain the safety systems to ensure high reliability
  • Assist your company to implement functional safety measures to international standards


Topics Covered:

Although a basic understanding of electrical engineering principles is essential, even those with a superficial knowledge will substantially benefit by attending this course. In particular, if you work in any of the following areas, you will benefit: Instrumentation and control engineers and technicians, Design, installation and maintenance engineers and technicians in the process industries, Managers and sales professionals employed by end users, Systems integrators or consultants, Consulting electrical engineers, Plant engineers and instrument technicians, Operations technicians, Electrical maintenance technicians and supervisors, Instrumentation and control system engineers, Process control engineers, Mechanical engineers
