SIL Determination & Hazard Assessment

Management of risk and the demonstration of appropriate risk reduction measures are becoming increasingly important in industry today. This can be relevant to compliance with aspects of legislation, such as COMAH, and in the application of standards such as IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.

This course is designed for those who need to understand the causes and sequence of failure that can lead to significant hazardous events occurring and be able to identify the key contributors to the level of risk - to people, business or the environment. 

Topics include:
- Calculation of hazardous event frequencies
- Assessment of risk reduction from protective systems and Safety Integrity Levels (SIL)
- Criteria for tolerable levels of risk
- Assessment of demand frequence on protective systems

Duration: 5 days 

The benefits
The effective use of the techniques allows questions to be answered in the areas of safety, health and environment; asset management and maintenance; loss prevention; new investment.

The course
On completion of the course you should be able to demonstrate a working knowledge of SIL and hazard assessment including:

- Logical analysis, using fault tree techniques of scenarios leading to hazardous events
- Use of data and its application to predict the likelihood of a hazardous event
- Development of practical hazard criteria
- Handling of dependent or common mode failures
- Basic human error assessment
- Applying basic SIL and hazard assessment in a variety of situations to help in making more effective and cost effective decisions

This course is also suitable as a basic qualification for those wanting to become hazard and reliability analysts.

Syndicate topics:
- Working with logic gates
- Use of the basic techniques to assess the potential frequency of hazardous events
- Logic diagram development and effect of proof testing
- Logic diagram development and effect of elements common to control and protective systems
- Logic development and use of data
- Use of event trees
- Failure rate for multiple plant items - development of logic
- Use of truth tables in analysing different plant arrangements
- Cost effective decision taking in controlling hazards
- Logic diagram development and the relative merits of shared elements and independent control and protective systems
- Use of minimum cut-sets to analyse complex protective systems
- Risk calculation for various operator situations
