Safety Instrumented Systems Engineering
22-24 November 2015, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Nothing is more important than safety to the Process Control Industries and there are never no more places for improvement of safety design and operations. In fact, the more insightful and experienced the safety control related technicians are, the more effective and reliable your systems will be.
Answering the needs of upgrading engineering skills as well as strengthening understanding of international best practices, standards and rules applied to Safety Instrumented System, this workshop is conducted to not only cover important aspects of a Safety Life Cycle but also provide key parameters and factors impacting SIS Performance Capabilities as well as practical exercises and calculations performed for better SIS Design and Operations. The workshop includes a case study on Fire Detector Coverage Mapping which is believed to be of interest to most Oil and Gas Companies where flammable and toxic materials are just some of the issues faced on daily basis. The applications of IEC 61511 to Fire and Gas Detection System and the difference between this system and traditional SIS discussion will be useful to participants’ understanding and practices
- Execute applications of IEC 61511 Safety Life Cycle to Practical Projects with discussions on handling existing equipments versus New Projects
- Comprehend the importance of PHA, execute PHA methods and PHA Data Mining for better SIS Design Calculations
- Identify commonly employed methods for SIL selection and practice Consequence and Likelihood Analysis
- Discover Key Parameters impacting SIS Performance Capabilities with practical examples
- Master the Quantitative and Qualitative Aspects of Achieving the SIL Targets
- Apply fundamental statistics, probability, and reliability engineering to SIS design verification
- Use Fault Propagation Modeling Techniques, Fault Tree Analysis and Markov Model for Multi-component System Reliability
- Perform SIL verification calculations with multiple techniques and tools
- Leverage your Failure Modes, Effects and Diagnostics Analysis
- Execute Partial Stroke Testing of Emergency Shutdown Valves
- Considering common cause failures, diagnostics, test intervals in SIL Verification
- Appreciate best practices in SIS Documentation and acknowledge P&ID Symbology for SIS Equipment
- Capitalize on Case Study of Fire Detector Coverage Mapping
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND:
As incidents in process industries are very costly and damaging, it is important that improvements in safety instrumented systems design and operations be continuously emphasized and those dealing with the systems are having better and better insights and skill set. This SIS training is a platform for instrumented and control systems to enhance their SIS critical knowledge such as Risk Management approaches, PHA issues, SIL calculations, selections and other reliability engineering fundamentals.
Participants are expected to go back to their workplace with revised perspectives, comprehensive knowledge and necessary tools and techniques to leverage their future performance.
By attending this course, you will have a chance to discuss and consult one of the leading experts who has been actively involved in setting and documenting standards and requirements dedicated to utilizing instrumentation to safeguard process plants including ISA SP 84 and ISA SP 18. His ISA award winning methods of teaching Safety Integrity Level Selection and his various consulting experience in SIS Design and Analysis guaranteed that participants get access to the most insightful training and widen their practical knowledge on Safety Instrumented Systems.
