SIS Course


In an increasingly multidisciplinary engineering environment, and in the face of ever increasing system complexity, there is a growing need for all engineers and technicians involved in process engineering to be aware of the implications of designing and operating safety-related systems.

Safety instrumented systems (SIS) are used to provide safe control functions for processes, e.g. emergency shutdown (ESD), fire detection and blowdown functions. SIS typically are composed of sensors, logic solvers and final control elements.

The Course has been developed to provide an overview of current industry standards on SIS, functional safety concepts and current tools used to determine safety integrity levels while applying industry recognised techniques and methodologies.


As a professional involved with functional safety, the participant’s ability to demonstrate competency in this subject is taking on greater importance and is being driven by standards such as IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.
