Functional process safety involves identifying potential hazardous events that can trigger a chain reaction that could lead to severe or catastrophic consequences. This program explains the international standards IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 for functional safety instrumented system. It covers the entire life-cycle of safety instrumented systems, from determining what risk control systems are required to decommission. The program also includes the separation of basic process control systems and safety instrumented systems (SIS), layers independent protection (LOPs), how to determine safety integrity levels (SILs), technology choices, and field device issues.

This Safety Instrumentation and Emergency Shut-down Systems training seminar primarily focuses on establishing conceptual and detailed design requirements, hazard analysis techniques, safety requirements specification, and the commissioning, operating, and maintenance procedures.

The course is compliant with current IMO requirements and based on best practices.


At the end of this training seminar, you will learn to:

  • Understand requirements of the international standards IEC 61598 and IEC 61511
  • Apply the IEC 61508 Safety Instrumented System Development ‘Safety Life Cycle’ model
  • Determine the Safety Integrity Level (SIL) using risk assessment methods.
  • Understand the specifications of emergency shutdown protection requirements
  • Establish specification requirements for the sensor, programmable logic controller, and valves
  • Follow Management of Change (MOC) procedures for control of future SIS changes


This program is suitable for a wide range of professional but will greatly benefit:

  • Design and Electrical Engineers
  • Instrument and Process Control Engineers and Technicians
  • Mechanical Engineers and Technicians
  • Operations and Process Engineers
  • Line Managers and Supervisors
  • Personnel who are responsible for designing, selecting, specifying, installing, operating, and maintaining safety instrumentation systems
  • Experienced professionals who want to broaden their understanding of safety instrumentation systems (SIS)


This training course will utilize various proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. This includes formal lectures and discussions, active participation through the use of problem-solving exercises, videos, group discussions, analysis of real-life case studies, and industry best practices.

Pre and Post-course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training and the pre and post skill and ability of participants.
