Competency in IEC 61511

7 March 2017

IEC 61511-1 was updated in 2016 and one of the areas it has strengthened is in the area of competency. Unfortunately, Competency has been an ongoing issue and this webinar is aimed at highlighting the need for competency and how competency can be measured. Many agree that competency is a blend of knowledge, experience and capability, which is critical when it comes to being able to perform Safety Instrumented System (SIS) engineering tasks. IEC 61511 specifically states that personnel shall be fully competent to perform the tasks required of the appropriate phase of the safety lifecycle. This webinar follows on from the Functional Safety Management webinar held in November last year since roles, responsibilities and competencies form a crucial part in the prevention and/or elimination of systematic faults creeping into the SIS.
