An Institute of Instrumentation, Control & Automation Australia /ISA professional development training course on how to implement safety instrumented systems will be held at the Ingleburn RSL, NSW, on Tuesday 19th October, alongside the IICA Sydney Table Tops trade show.
The EC50C Safety Instrumented Systems training course covers the basics of what needs to be done in the design and selection of safety instrumented systems. It answers questions such as:
- which technology should be used (electric, electronic, or programmable)?
- what level of redundancy is appropriate (single, dual, or triple)?
- how often should systems be tested (monthly, quarterly, yearly, or once per shutdown)?
- what about field devices (technology, level of redundancy & test intervals)?
- understand the design basis of recent standards, guidelines and recommended practices
- understand the difference between process control and safety control
- describe the life cycle set of activities that are necessary to design, implement and maintain safety systems
- understand the basics of evaluating process risk levels
- understand the basics of determining Safety Integrity Levels (SILs)
- describe the failure modes of safety systems
- understand the real impact of redundancy
- describe the pros and cons of various logic system technologies
- understand the impact of field devices on system performance
- understand the documentation requirements.
