Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 

3rd of December 2014


This hands-on seminar will introduce the purpose and application principles for implementing Safety Integrity Levels (SIL) in process safeguarding systems.  
The seminar session will focus on the establishment of the appropriate SIL (Safety Integrity Levels) and the subsequent selection of functional safety applications as established by and described in Safety Integrity Level procedures in accordance with SIL IEC-61508/61511 guidelines.  


  • Understand and make use of the IEC-61508/61511 guidelines
  • Can assist with a risk management in accordance with IEC-61508/61511
  • Regulations and standards
  • Understands the safe electrical/instrumentation control chain
  • Understands the classification of safety levels and how to assess the limitation / mitigation of damage by the use of instrumented protective solutions
  • Understands safety lifetime cycles and the individual Safety Integrity Levels (SIL) of safety related systems
  • Has an overview of the framework, definitions, systems, and hardware and requirements for SIL systems



  • IEC 61508/61511 guidelines, function and fundamentals of SIL
  • Impact of redundancy on overall system performance with respect to safety and availability
  • Overview of how to calculate and select appropriate Safety Integrity Levels
