2073: Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) Implementation-Sept 19-21, 2017
The SIS Implementation short course is designed to provide the student with an understanding of the required safety management system, how to perform LOPA to identify the need for an SIS and to assign the SIL, how to design the SIS to meet the specified SIL, how to verify that the SIL can be achieved,and how to develop an operating plan to maintain the SIL throughout the SIS life.

This course reviews the various good engineering practices that apply to Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) implemented in process industry facilities. It presents the requirements of IEC 61511 using a lifecycle framework that is supplemented with several industrial guidance documents. It explains how risk analysis techniques, such as Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA), are used to identify the need for administrative and engineered safeguards. IEC 61511 establishes requirements for designing and managing SISs to achieve specified Safety Integrity Levels (SIL), which are related to order of magnitude ranges of risk reduction. When LOPA determines that an SIS is required, the required risk reduction becomes the target SIL for the SIS.
