Can I see your Functional Safety Management Program documentation?

Planning Functional Safety (with Template Procedure)

A part of the IEC 61511 standard that does not get the attention that it deserves is clause 5 – Management of Functional Safety.

While most engineers want to focus on detailed design, risk analysis and SIL verification calculations, it is the management aspect that addresses the human failure portion of the risk equation.

In clause 5 we define the need for a plan to be made for functional safety.  This plan needs to include the definition of tasks that occur during the SIS safety lifecycle along with assignments of who is responsible for these tasks.  This clause also addresses items like competency and the assignment of SIS tasks to external organizations.

In this webinar we will highlight some of the information that is contained in the Kenexis course – SIS Management responsibilities.  We will then move on to an explanation of the Kenexis Template SIS Safety Lifecycle Procedure along with recommendations on how to customize it for your organization.  If you do not already have a safety lifecycle management procedure, this webinar and the template are a great starting point that will honestly get you most of the way to where you need to be.

Why is that Detector There

Have you ever wondered why a gas or fire detector is installed at a location. Maybe someone walking through your facility asked you why a detector was installed at a particular location. Scrambling to find an answer at that point is probably useless, you already revealed that you don’t know and maybe no one else onsite knows.

In this webinar we will quickly go through how we engineer where detectors are positioned and some of the science behind the engineering. We will discuss the process and even design a small system live and calculate coverage to see if it meets the requirements.

SIS and BPCS Component Sharing

There is still some confusion about a key attribute of good Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) design – specifically separation of Basic Process Control Systems (BPCS) and Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS). In this live webinar, we will cover Definitions and Standards Requirements, Assessment of Independence – Shared Valve System, Quantitative Justification of Shared Component, Additional Standards Requirements, Design of SIS Separation Workflow

Determining and Documenting Appropriate Leak Tightness Requirements

This webinar was well attended with many questions and comments, and you asked for more. The webinar went into detail about the differences between tight shut off and leakage rate methods, the standards, and how to determine the correct leak requirements for your situation.

We did not record the webinar, however it is available on our Process Safety Training Center site.

If you want, you can request a 3-day Process Safety Training Center trial request and view the recorded training session as well as other training available on the site. Click here to request the trial, https://www.kenexis.com/request-trial-access-for-24-hours-to-the-process-safety-training-center/

Once you log into the site, there is a Training button in the button bar to the right shown in the image below. That button will take you to training. Once you are in the Training section, the Browse Available Courses link near the bottom will take you to the course list. You want the Safety Requirements Specifications (SRS) course. Once the course is open, click on the Subscribe button to enter the course and Section 14 – Valve Leakage Rates covers Standards Requirements, Leak Tightness Definitions, Selecting Leakage Class Approaches, and Valve Leakage Specification Workflow. You can even take the quiz at the end if you want.
