Kenexis Consulting Corporation today announced that President Ed Marszal has been selected as the keynote speaker for two upcoming Safety Control Systems (SCS) Conferences organized by IDC Technologies and to be held in fall 2011. The conferences will be located in Houston and Australia, with more details to follow once they have been finalized. The keynote topics for the conferences will include “Competency Management for SIS” and “Safety Instrumented System (SIS) Bypass Management.” In addition, Mr. Marszal will present a separate four-hour workshop of safety integrity level selection prior to the full conference. Mr. Marszal has been on the forefront of the topic of SIS bypass management, as evidenced by Kenexis recent development of a SIS bypass management training course. Mr. Marszal noted “This issue has become an important topic as the economic climate has forced operators around the world to function with a smaller and less experienced instrumentation staff. So we’ve seen an increase in requests from our clients to expand on this training.” IDC Technologies continues its effort in providing dynamic and popular speakers. “Edward Marzsal, key note speaker for a number of our worldwide Safety Control Systems Conferences, is a presenter of the highest calibre. Edward’s expertise and enthusiasm in presenting has contributed to the continual success and sell out numbers of these events,” noted Steve Mackay, Technical Director at IDC Technologies.
