Training Process Industry

The process industry in a certain way triggered the development and establishment of Functional Safety standards. A serious accident in a petroleum refinery prompted experts around the world to start thinking about Functional Safety requirements. From this process evolved the basic standard, IEC 61508, from which the application standard for the process industry, IEC 61511, was derived shortly afterwards.

SGS-TÜV Saar GmbH offers you trainings in which you learn how to optimally apply IEC 61511 e.g.

  • Trainings in the use of IEC 61511 (for application engineers and operators)
  • Workshops in probabilistic calculations and methods
  • Consulting for implementing necessary engineering steps according the lifecycle model of IEC 61511
  • Gap analysis to existing development processes
  • Design verification of safety instrumented functions (SIF) according the requirements of IEC 61511
  • Assessment of performed design verifications resulting in a technical report
  • Assessment of the implemented safety process steps
  • Certification of engineering processes and applications according IEC 61511

You will particularly benefit from the experiences of our trainers as pioneers in the field of Functional Safety. They will train you using case studies you can directly integrate into your operational planning processes.
