This course forms a broad review in preparation for the Certified Functional Safety Expert (CFSE) and Certified Functional Safety Professional (CFSP) process industry application engineering exams.
It provides an overview of process industry safety engineering from the point of view of the Risk Analyst, Process Safety Coordinator, and Control Systems Design Engineer.
This course delivers a complete overview of the functional safety lifecycle. The course reviews Process Hazard Analysis (PHA), Consequence Analysis, Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA), Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Target Selection, Safety Requirements Specification (SRS) generation, failure rates, device and system reliability, SIF verification, SIF detailed design and Operations requirements.
FSE 211 - IEC 61508 - An Introduction to Functional Safety
SPECIALTY: Safety Hardware and Software
The IEC 61508 standard for functional safety of electrical/electronic and programmable electronic systems explains the concepts of safety integrity levels, the safety lifecycle and many detail requirements needed to ensure functional safety. The standard is comprehensively reviewed and explained. Documentation requirements, project implications, and maintenance/operational implications are explained. Checklists and other implementation tools are presented.
IEC61508 is the foundation for many industries, including Machine Safety. Today, ISO13849 and IEC62061 are 2 main distinctive standards used as the building blocks. Machine safety is particularly relevant to professionals who are responsible for validating the safety of machines that use either simple lower risk/complexity systems or complex systems such as PLC’s for safety duties. New standards like the ones mentioned above are continually being developed, placing unfamiliar requirements on the task of assuring machine safety, especially when more complex equipment such as PLC’s are used. With technology changing, effective competency training of individuals who are responsible for specifying, designing, or otherwise applying technology to safety applications is increasing in demand. This course will walk the candidate through the machine safety lifecycle and will learn about Risk, how to reduce the Risk, how to determine SIL, and much more. The main goal of this course is to make not only the plant safer but also to ensure the safety of your staff and financial health of your organization.
AUT 211 - Automotive ISO 26262: Road Vehicles Functional Safety
SPECIALTY: Automotive Safety
ISO 26262 is a functional safety standard intended to be applied to the development of software for electrical and/or electronic (E/E) systems in automobiles. ISO 26262 is an adaptation of the broader IEC 61508 safety standard, which has been used to derive safety standards for the nuclear power, machinery, railway, and other industries. It is aimed at reducing risks associated with software for safety functions to a tolerable level by providing feasible requirements and processes. This course offers an introductory to the standard from a software and hardware level.
