Introduction to SIL Determination Course Overview

The Introduction to SIL Determination Course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of a SIL Determination study in context of IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.

As part of the requirements to meet international standards IEC 61508 and IEC 61511, a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Determination study is essential to determine the required risk reduction target expressed as a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Target for a Safety Instrumented System (SIS). This one day course is intended to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of a SIL Determination study in the context of IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.

Course Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, participants should have an appreciation of:

  • The concept of SIL Determination in the context of the requirements of IEC 61508 and IEC 61511
  • The concept of risk reduction, risk reduction parameters and the concept of a tolerable risk
  • The concept of a Safety Instrumented Function with respect to its functionality and its performance
  • The role of a Safety Instrument System, other engineered measures and risk parameters in achieving a tolerable risk
  • Safety Integrity and Safety Integrity Level (SIL)
  • SIL determination concepts and methods
  • Modes of operation and associated Target Failures Measures
  • Application of the Risk Graph Method for determining SIL requirements
  • Fundamentals of the Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA) methodology
  • Key points when preparing for a SIL Determination workshop
  • Use and application of the software package ProSet’s SIL Comp Module to conduct and record a SIL Determination study
  • Demonstration of the As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP) principle using Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA)

The training course will be held be ESC’s Simon Burwood .
