How to Quickly Determine if Safety Functions are Vulnerable to a Cybersecurity Threat

In this webinar, we will briefly cover the good cybersecurity principles like backing up everything, restricting access, and the other top ten things everyone should already be doing at a minimum. Then we will dive into how to perform a Security PHA Review (SPR) of your HAZOPs. An SPR is designed to help you quickly determine if any of your safety functions are vulnerable to a cybersecurity threat.

Quantitative Bowtie

Research into Unified Hazard Assessment combining HAZOP, LOPA, and Quantitative Bowtie Analysis has yielded techniques that elegantly address the limitations of LOPA and provided a significantly improved graphical communications method. This recorded webinar provides background on how Unified Hazard Assessment yielded the techniques of Quantitative Bowtie analysis. The webinar will also describe in detail how to implement quantitative bowtie analysis along with the mathematical concepts used for quantification of risk for multiple causes and multiple consequences inside a single scenario. The concepts will be presented using example studies that include mitigative safeguards and multiple cause scenarios.

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
