WEBINAR: Functional safety - progress and pitfalls

Avoid common mistakes, implement best practice

Functional Safety Webinar

The implementation of effective functional safety is valuable in ensuring that safety critical control and protective systems are appropriately specified, designed, installed and maintained. 

Through the IEC functional safety standards the concepts of the Safety Lifecycle and Safety Integrity Levels are now well known. However, DNV GL’s experience from numerous projects across different industry sectors suggests that there remain challenges to be overcome. 

This webinar will explore DNV GL’s experience of the progress made over recent years. It will also discuss the challenges and pitfalls we have witnessed with reference to common findings from Functional Safety Assessments carried out by DNV GL’s expert consultants. In addition it will discuss how changes to the new edition of IEC 61511 may present opportunities and challenges to companies in the oil, gas and process industries. 

Watch this recorded webinar to learn:

  • How to avoid common mistakes in the management and implementation of functional safety
  • Examples of good practice in the application of functional safety
  • How good practice can help optimize test regimes, increase plant availability and reduce maintenance workload
  • How changes to the 2nd IEC 61511 may affect your management of functional safety.

Target audience:

This webinar will be of interest to functional safety engineers, control and instrumentation engineers, safety and risk engineers, HSE/safety managers, technical authorities, regulators and HSE officers.
