Whether you are working to IEC61511 on a process industry application or simply using BS EN 61508, the master standard for safety instrumented systems, Functional Safety Management is a basic requirement of the standard. It is required in IEC61508 part 1 clause 6 and IEC61511 part 1 clause 5.
Demonstrating Functional Safety Management to both IEC61508 2nd edition and IEC61511
So has your company been discussing the need to demonstrate your competency management for safety instrumented systems?
Have you wondered how to assess your suppliers' competency management for looking after your safety shutdown system?
Have you thought about how your customers might assess your suitability for the management of high-integrity safety systems work?
One thing is clear: IEC 61508 requires competent people at all stages of the lifecycle for the safety loop.
This free workshop run at HazardEx 2011 shows you how to document your Functional Safety Management system in compliance with the standards and demonstrate it to others. The same tools help you assess the Functional Safety Management system of your suppliers.
