This is the final part of the SaRS Technical Learning webinar series on the Basics of Functional Safety. The series gives an overview on the various aspects of Functional Safety and compliance with international standards and responds directly to topics requested from the previous webinar feedback forms. The series is presented by experts from Engineering Safety Consultants (ESC) Ltd.

In Part 5 we look at the key elements of data collection within safety instrumented systems, covering:

  • What does the standard say? (IEC 61511-1:2017+A1:2017)

  • How to evaluate and use the data.
