Mumbai, Sep 01, 2011– Abhisam Software informs us that they have arranged an introductory course in Functional Safety on 26th Sep 2011 in Mumbai at Hotel Kohinoor Continental, Andheri near the airport. The course will cover everything related to Functional Safety at an introductory level. It will answer key questions that are asked by many engineers and safety professionals in relation to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) and Functional Safety.

These are:

  • What is Hazard and Risk?
  • What is Functional Safety?
  • What does SIL mean?
  • Is SIL 3 better than SIL 2?
  • What are the IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 standards?
  • What SIL applies to my plant, instrument or location?
  • How can I get my products “SIL compliant?
  • What are Safety Instrumented Systems?
  • What do you mean by a “SIL Study”?

These and many other questions will be answered by Dr. Michel Houtermans, the world’s leading expert on Functional Safety and SIL.

This training program is something that is useful to Instrumentation & Control System manufacturers, system integrators, engineering consultants, electrical and instrument contractors as well as users in the process industries such as Oil & Gas, Petroleum, Chemicals, Fertilizers, Power and similar industries that utilize complex safety and emergency shutdown systems to keep their plants, people and the environment safe. It will also be of interest to regulatory authorities who supervise these industries.
