About The Course
The operation of many industrial processes, especially those in the chemical or oil & gas industries, involve inherent risk due to the presence of
dangerous chemicals or gases. Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) are
specifically designed to protect personnel, equipment, and the environment by reducing the likelihood or the impact severity of an identified emergency event. Explosions and fires account for millions of dollars of losses in the chemical or oil & gas industries each year. Since a great potential for loss exists, it is common for industry to employ Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) to provide safe isolation of flammable or potentially toxic material in the event of a fire or accidental release of fluids. This course will explain the basic concepts, definitions and commonly used terms in Safety Instrumented
Systems and provide a basic understanding of SIS related concepts.
