Free workshop teaches essential elements of Safety Instrumented Systems including how to comply with myriad safety requirements.

Calgary, AB -- ACM Facility Safety presents a free two-day process safety workshop with hands-on instruction on how to deal with safety requirements such as SIL, HAZOP, LOPA, SIF Loop Verification, SRS and Reporting. The workshop is available in a two-day classroom in Calgary, or as a three-day webinar.

This workshop is designed for engineers and technologists who want to follow best engineering practices with regard to the application of Safety Instrumented Systems in the process industry. The course is free for qualified students and includes a copy of SafeGuard Profiler software, an IEC compliant Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Life Cycle tool, which students will use to compile data, perform analyses and generate reports during the class.

The workshop covers:
• Safety Integrity Level (SIL)
• Safety Life Cycle (SLC)
• Safety Instrumented Function (SIF)
• Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP)
• Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA)
• SIL Determination and Validation
• Safety Requirements Specifications (SRS)

• SIL Determination using LOPA Scenario Analysis
• Risk Graph Analysis
• SIF Loop Verification
• Loop Linking (SIF to LOPA, SIF to SIF)
• Contingency Planning and Risk Exposure
• Reports
• Other related topics

The workshop is appropriate for High Integrity and Critical Control System specialists, I & C Team Leaders, engineers and technologists, SIL and LOPA team leaders and scribes, and engineers involved in any aspect of the safety Lifecycle.
