The Asia-Pacific Branch is delighted to present its inaugural webinar on the 3rd February 2021 at 1630 Hong Kong time/1930 Sydney time which is 0830 UK time.

Following the success and popularity of the SaRS webinar “Fundamentals of Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Verification” that was broadcast on the 30th June 2020, the Asia-Pacific Branch would like to re-present this webinar at a time when more Asia-Pacific based S&R professionals can watch it live and participate in the Q&A.

The webinar will present the fundamentals of performing a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Verification which is a key requirement specified in IEC 61508 and IEC 61511. This requirement ensures that the Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) is designed to meet the SIL target identified in the SIL Determination study in order to achieve the required level of risk reduction. The presentation will cover the fundamentals of SIL Verification, random hardware failures assessment and the common pitfalls and issues. A simple example of a SIL Verification assessment will be presented.

The webinar will be presented by: Jaspreet K Chana MEng (Hons.) CEng MIChemE FSEng (TÜV Rheinland), Principal Consultant, Engineering Safety Consultants (ESC) Limited.

Jaspreet is a certified TUV (Rheinland) Functional Safety Engineer, with a background in Chemical and Process Engineering, who has worked in high risk, critical consequence industries for over 10 years including nuclear and oil and gas. As a Functional Safety Specialist, her expertise lies in areas such as risk assessments, reliability modelling and implementation of functional safety management systems with the aim of supporting clients to achieve and demonstrate compliance with Functional Safety standards.
