Functional safety training for the process industry from SGS helps you learn how to reduce risks and comply with relevant standards.

The process industry was instrumental in triggering the development and establishment of functional safety standards. A serious accident in a petroleum refinery prompted experts around the world to start thinking about functional safety. From this process evolved the basic standard, IEC 61508. The standard for the process industry, IEC 61511, was derived shortly afterwards.

Our training modules teach attendees how to optimally apply IEC 61511. You will particularly benefit from the experiences of our trainers as pioneers in the field of Functional Safety. The training is based on case studies that can then be directly integrated into operational planning processes.
