Introduction to SIL Determination Course Overview
The Introduction to SIL Determination Course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of a SIL Determination study in context of IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.
As part of the requirements to meet international standards IEC 61508 and IEC 61511, a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Determination study is essential to determine the required risk reduction target expressed as a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Target for a Safety Instrumented System (SIS). This one day course is intended to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of a SIL Determination study in the context of IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.
Course Learning Objectives
By the end of this course, participants should have an appreciation of:
- The concept of SIL Determination in the context of the requirements of IEC 61508 and IEC 61511
- The concept of risk reduction, risk reduction parameters and the concept of a tolerable risk
- The concept of a Safety Instrumented Function with respect to its functionality and its performance
- The role of a Safety Instrument System, other engineered measures and risk parameters in achieving a tolerable risk
- Safety Integrity and Safety Integrity Level (SIL)
- SIL determination concepts and methods
- Modes of operation and associated Target Failures Measures
- Application of the Risk Graph Method for determining SIL requirements
- Fundamentals of the Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA) methodology
- Key points when preparing for a SIL Determination workshop
- Use and application of the software package ProSet’s SIL Comp Module to conduct and record a SIL Determination study
- Demonstration of the As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP) principle using Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA)
The training course will be held be ESC’s Simon Burwood .
