Free Online Course: Functional Safety for Managers

Wednesday 4th May 2011 - 2 Sessions


Recent events such as the Deepwater Horizon disaster and the Montara blowout are causing more emphasis to be placed on functional safety in instrumentation and control systems.


In this context functional safety deals with the application of "safety instrumented systems" as part of a company's overall risk management strategy.
The objective of this webinar is to help participants to understand:


  • Why functional safety needs management
  • What is meant by the term functional safety
  • How functional safety fits into wider quality and risk management frameworks
  • The standards that need to be followed and why they are important
  • The basic principles in managing functional safety
