This 2-day course is designed to deliver expert instruction on how to successfully plan and execute Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Determination studies efficiently, effectively and in accordance with the IEC 61511 standard. This includes understanding the principles behind three of the most commonly used SIL Determination methods (Layer of Protection Analysis, Calibrated Risk Graph and Safety Layer Matrix), learning how to deal with challenging personalities within the SIL team and how to avoid common pitfalls and traps so studies run smoothly. Price: $1,850 CDN

Note: The SIL Determination / LOPA Workshop can be taken in conjunction with the SIL Validation Workshop to gain a more thorough understanding of the Safety Lifecycle process.

This course teaches all the requirements to prepare team leaders to facilitate and document SIL Determination studies, including:
• Risk Assessment specialists
• SIL / PHA / HAZOP team leaders & scribes
• Process Safety Management (PSM) / Loss Management specialists
• Supervisors, managers and engineers responsible for SIL studies
• Project managers who need to understand the concepts and principles of IEC 61508 & 61511
• Engineers involved in any aspect of the SIS Safety Lifecycle

Participants should understand the process of executing a HAZOP study and be familiar with typical HAZOP reports.

The course is comprised of two days of combined classroom instruction and workshop exercises. In addition to expert instruction from an experienced, professional SIL Determination facilitator, students will form a study team with other participants and take turns leading the team through “practice” SIL Determination studies. The instructor will coach students and provide feedback on performance. SafeGuard Profiler software is used throughout the workshop to demonstrate the SIL methods, document the SIL studies and produce typical SIL Determination reports.

The course follows the first two phases of the SIS Lifecycle within the IEC 61511 standard.
