Overview

The global importance of SIL (Safety Integrity Levels) has grown substantially in process industries over the years. However, SIL is still a somewhat ambiguous concept that often is misinterpreted and incorrectly implemented.

Register for this webinar to learn in-depth details about the SIL Risk Management Process from product assessment and their layers of protection to the process risk reduction measures for keeping personnel and property safe.

The Risk Management Process covers product component level selection, product incorporation within the system, and systematic layers of protection. A lack of consideration with respect to any portion of the SIL Risk Management Process can expose a system to higher risk resulting with intolerable negative consequence.

Webinar attendees will gain an enhanced understanding of the purpose and intent of the systematic methods applied for evaluation and implementation of functional safety provides for improved decision making in the achievement of tolerable risks.

  • Understand the importance of a Safety Instrumented Function (SIF)
  • Discover how SIL levels are calculated
  • See how to determine a tolerable risk using a Risk Matrix.
  • Find out how to implement a Risk Management Process to identify, assess, and control risk to keep personnel and property safe
