Overview of IEC 61511: Functional Safety Standard for End-Users in the Process Industry

Course Code: FSE 121

Course Description:

The IEC 61511 standard is the functional safety standard, specific to the Process Industry sector. The standard introduces a safety lifecycle concept, a structured engineering process to ensure functional safety is achieved in a plant. The standard also focuses on probabilistic evaluation of process risk and required risk reduction, if necessary. This training will provide an introduction to the IEC 61511 functional safety standard. The functional safety lifecycle will be discussed from a “big picture” perspective, with subsequently additional detail in the main phases of the lifecycle, Analysis, Realization, and Operation. The training will conclude with functional safety requirements and basic reliability concepts.
