Free eLearning content on functional safety published

May 2015 News

The companies TÜV Nord, Krohne, Samson and Phoenix Contact have published a jointly created eLearning on functional safety (SIL). Designed for system planners and operators of industrial process plants, the new eLearning offers ten modules for the use of IEC 61508/61511 in safety-related systems. The eLearning can be accessed immediately at www.sil-training.com

The contents are product-neutral and free and are based on the SIL seminar series that has been conducted as collaboration between the companies since 2009 as part of the Krohne Academy. The partners have decided to publish the content as eLearning due to the high demand for further education on the topic of SIL.

The 10 modules build upon one another and provide an overview of the basic concepts and methods of functional safety. Following an introduction to the topic of ‘Safety in the Process Industry’ other modules follow on hazard and risk assessment; safety requirement specifications; engineering and design; requirements for sensor technology and final elements; and the verification of SIL. These are complemented by calculation examples and a module for start-up and modifications. At the end of each module learners have the opportunity to check their knowledge by completing a short questionnaire.

On successful completion of a module, a certificate is issued to each participant that can be downloaded and printed. Participants who have passed all ten modules receive a global course certificate.
