Functional Safety in the process industries

15 August 2019

Functional Safety is the part of the overall safety of plant and equipment that depends on the correct functioning of safety-related systems and other risk reduction measures. In the process industries IEC 61511 is the benchmark standard for the management of Functional Safety.

The EEMUA Functional Safety e-learning training course covers the application of IEC 61511. The training is positioned at the awareness/introductory level and addresses what is a safety system and what are the applicable standards, through to the legal aspects, regulator expectations and demonstrating compliance, ending with roles and responsibilities and the SIS safety lifecycle.

Engineers, Technicians and Managers operating in the oil and gas, chemicals, petrochemicals, fine chemicals, and other high-risk industries, should find this e-learning of interest. Further information can be found here.

Employees in EEMUA Member companies can access the e-learning free of charge as a benefit of membership.
