What Really is Functional Safety Management?

Recording Date: October 2018

IEC61511 defines that a Functional Safety Management System be put in place to manage the Safety Lifecycle activities, but what really does that all entail?

The IEC61511 Standard is built around a safety lifecycle (SLC™) to provide a consistent approach to risk identification and risk reduction, in accordance with a company’s tolerable risk. This webinar will introduce the SLC™ along with what is risk and how to manage it. We will then discover at how Managers need to be competent when it comes to managing SLC™ tasks; along with being responsible for personnel who are performing SLC™ tasks. We will wrap up the webinar considering the importance of performing preventative maintenance and how arbitrarily cutting expenditure on maintenance could lead to serious incidents and litigation.
