Training on Functional Safety

Functional safety is the most fundamental to every industry to ensure that the work environment is a place free of hazards. There is an ongoing demand of Functional Safety Professional across various industries like Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Paper, Metals and mining. The main standard of Functional Safety IEC-61508 and IEC-61511 are discussed in detail and also applicability of standards are discussed. Lifecycle of SIL verification and validation also discussed.






This course includes in-depth study of:
