THE WORKSHOP

Many of today’s computer controlled industrial processes involve large amounts of energy and have the potential for devastating accidents. Reliable, well engineered safety systems are essential for protection against destruction and loss of life.

The Safety Instrumentation & Shut-Down Systems workshop is an intensive, practical and valuable two-day course. We offer you the most vital, up-to- date information and practical know-how to enable you to participate in hazard studies and specify, design, install and operate the safety and emergency shut-down systems in your plant using international safety practices.

This workshop will provide you with a broad understanding of the latest safety instrumentation practices and their applications to functional safety in manufacturing and process industries. This workshop is "not-to-be-missed" - it could save your business a fortune in possible downtime and financial loss!

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

The workshop objectives are to:

• expand your practical knowledge in the application of safety instrumented systems as applied to industrial processes

• provide you with knowledge of the latest standards dealing with each stage of the safety lifecycle from the initial evaluation of hazards through to the detailed engineering and maintenance of safety instrumented systems

• give you the ability to plan hazard and risk assessment studies, then design, implement and maintain the safety systems to ensure high reliability

• assist your company to implement functional safety measures to international standards

PRACTICAL SESSIONS

There are at least six practical exercise sessions to give you the hands-on experience you will need.
