SAICHE-352: Layer of Protection Analysis & Safety Integrity Evaluation
Provider: ISHECON cc
Valid from: 15/08/2019 - 15/08/2022
Event Date: Contact service provider if not on SAIChE website.
About the Course:
To enable those involved in projects and plant or installation modifications to contribute meaningfully in a Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) and Safety Integrity Level (SIL) study session. This will ensure that the design and operation meet all safety, health and environmental requirements based on the layers of protection and the appropriate specification of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) . Further appropriate post-course experience should enable mastering the skills to take on a LOPA SIL Facilitator role.
OBJECTIVES AND ACHIEVEMENTS
Explain the scope, procedures and limitations that are applicable to a LOPA and SIL evaluation
Understand Initiating Events, Hazards, Independent Layers of Protection (IPL), Enablers, Modifiers, Safeguard and Safety Instrumented Functions (SIF)
Use information from Hazop Studies to carry out a LOPA and determine the SIL for SIS via basic methods, risk graphs and matrixes
Assess the adequacy of SIS’s against tolerance criteria
Knowledge of failure data and logic diagrams
Recording of LOPA and SIL evaluations
Gain insight of SIS hardware configurations, redundancy, diagnostics, proof testing, and spurious trips
Alarm prioritization concepts
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
• Instrument and control engineers and technicians.
• Safety/Loss Prevention/Risk managers, practitioners
