The release and adoption of IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 has created new requirements for all organizations involved with equipment used in safety related systems. As these functional safety standards are applied more broadly across industry and referenced more frequently as examples of best practice by industry and product standards the importance of meeting them is increasing. The requirements of the standards are new to many end users, EPCs, and manufacturers of valve, actuator, and other devices used in the final element which can result in effort invested in areas that do not guarantee compliance or increased safety reliability.
This webinar will:
· Review the functional safety standards along with the steps necessary to meet them
· Examine IEC 61508, including the Safety Lifecycle, key documentation necessary, and information that is supplied to end users
· Review IEC 61511 to examine the impact of the information supplied by manufacturers
· Provide examples from both the manufacturer and end user viewpoint to illustrate common pitfalls as well as best practices
