ACM’s LOPA and SIL Validation Workshops in Calgary – Feb 26-27 and Feb 28-Mar 1, 2018

Published February 01, 2018 under ACM News


LOPA Workshop and SIL Validation Workshop

February 26-27 and Feb 28-March 1st in Calgary, AB

Would you like to learn how to plan, execute and document Safety Integrity Level (SIL) determination studies, (including SIL determination method LOPA), perform SIL verification studies efficiently, effectively and in accordance with the IEC 61511 2nd edition standard?

Are you responsible for ensuring that Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) have been designed and engineered to appropriately mitigate an identified high level of risk?

Want to increase your chance of successfully passing the TUV (Rheinland) FS Eng. SIS exam?

ACM's LOPA and Safety Integrity Level Verification (SIL-V) workshops are designed as an entry level into the world of SIS and are used as a gateway into more advanced certification courses. The LOPA workshop provides insight on why SIS are needed and at what stage of facility design they are determined to study. SIL-V is an extension of the knowledge gained in LOPA and focuses on how robust each safety instrumented function (SIF) must be to reduce identified risks to a tolerable level within the facility. Each workshop is two days long, they are held back to back every quarter at ACM in Calgary. The learnings gained from these two courses will prepare you to speak to the justification and design of SIS.

With these 2 workshops, ACM helps participants understand the underlying principles behind two of the most commonly used SIL Determination Methods (Layer of Protection Analysis and Calibrated Risk Graph) and use real-life examples to teach how to design one or multiple Safety Instrumented Functions (SIFs) to meet specified integrity levels.
