Fifjure F 1 are now multiplied together and the product is entered in column 8, Figure F. Safety instrumented systems for the process industry sector. Safety instrumented functions can operate in a demand mode of operation or a continuous mode of operation.

Process monitoring systems alarm a permissible fault status of the process ief to alert the operating personnel or induce manual interventions process monitoring systems do not normally need to be implemented according to the requirements of this standard. The total risk reduction provided by the safety instrumented function s together with any other protection layers has to be such as to ensure that: ALARP is a concept oec can be applied during the determination of safety integrity levels. The 615511-3 in 6511-3 standard address the following: Each individual process plant location may have a defined quantity associated with specific substances above which notification is required to local authorities Projects need to determine what can be accepted in a specific location.

Therefore 0,1 is entered into column 6, Figure F 1 under additional mitigation and risk reduction. It starts by assuming that no safety instrumented systems exist, although typical non safety instrumented systems such as BPCS and monitoring systems are in place.

Introduction to Safety Instrumented Systems (IEC 61508/IEC 61511) – 3 day Course

For example, a person could receive information on the state of the process, and perform a safety action based on this information If a person is part of a safety function, then all human factors should be considered. The method starts with data developed in the Hazard and Operability analysis HAZOP study and accounts for each identified hazard by documenting the initiating cause and the protection layers that prevent or mitigate the hazard.


Figure 2 gives an overview of risk reduction methods. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be same as that ot the specified value in this standard. For existing safety instrumented systems SIS designed and constructed in accordance with codes, standards, or practices prior to the issuance of this standard e.

The technique relies heavily on the expertise of a team to identify hazards, provides an explicit method to handle existing safety systems of other technologies, uses a framework to document all activities that have lead to the stated outcome and provides a system for lifecycle management.

An IPL is designed solely to prevent or to mitigate the consequences of one potentially hazardous event for example, a runaway reaction, release of toxic material, a loss of containment, or a fire. Such systems are referred to as Safety Instrumented Systems. The relationship between the combinations of risk parameters and safety integrity levels is established by considering the tolerable risk associated with specific hazards.

Loss of cooling water to the condenser and failure of the reactor steam control loop. No part of these publications may be reproduced in any form without the prior permission in writing of BIS.

It should be noted that the F parameter is not used in this risk graph because the concept of occupancy does not apply.

Step 1 establishes the safety target of the process. Annex B provides an overview of a semi-quantitative method used to 61511-33 the required SIL. Certain conventions are, however, not identical to those used in Indian 6151-13. If corrective action not taken Impact event could cause serious injury or fatality on site or off site Impact event that is five or more times severe than a serious event.

Therefore, process control systems are classified as follows: One person on the team should be trained in the LOPA methodology. Serious Damage to equipment. An example of this would be a jacketed pipe or vessel The jacket would prevent the release of process material if the integrity of the primary pipe or vessel is compromised.

In most situations, safety is best achieved by an inherently safe process design. It may be achieved by one or a combination of risk reduction techniques.


This is the broadly acceptable region where the risks are small in comparison with the everyday risks we all experience. The results can be used to identify necessary safety functions and their associated SIL in order to reduce the process risk to an acceptable level. The purpose of determining the tolerable risk process safety target level for a specific hazardous event is to state what is deemed reasonable with respect to both the frequency of the hazardous event and its specific consequences.

Again, these ratings are provided for guidance. For example, a hazardous event, leading to a specific consequence, would typically be expressed. Minor Minor damage to equipment No shutdown of the process. Mitigation layers may reduce the severity of the idc event but not prevent it from occurring.

If it is necessary ifc reduce individual risk to a specified maximum then it cannot be assumed that all this risk reduction can be assigned to a single SIS. In fact, the total frequency of releases to the environment from Figure B. For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with, the final value, 611511-3 or calculated, expressing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded off in accordance with IS 2: The assessment of process risk using semi-quantitative techniques can be distinguished in the following major steps.

Frequently, process experience and the HAZOP study results for a particular process can be generalized so as to be applicable for similar processes that exist in a company. 6151-3 addition BPCS and monitoring systems which are in continuous operation and reduce the demand rate of the safety instrumented system are normally present.

The protection layers obtained from process design, alarms, additional mitigation and the SIS still exist if a failure of the steam control loop occurs. The process industry sector includes many types of manufacturing processes, such as refineries, petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, and power.
