exida Recorded Webinars

How are You Handling the O & M Requirements of IEC 61511?

Recording Date: June 2014

It is hard to believe that the IEC 61511 standard has been in existence since 2003 and most companies operating in the process, chemical, and refining industries, (or any other hazardous process manufacturer) have adopted its practices. It is also significant that any plants that were built at that time with a Safety Instrumented System (SIS) will now be halfway through their useful life. This begs the question of how well have companies been recording the performance of their SIS systems, in terms of failures, spurious trips, and proof testing results? This webinar highlights how testing and documenting the performance of the SIS is an essential part of ensuring that the SIS is able to fulfill its designed functional safety requirements. This is especially true as the SIS approaches its end of useful life.
