Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Study & Verification




Safety Integrity Level (SIL) determination and the verification on a Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) is a foremost requirement according to international standards.


This course is designed to provide the awareness of Safety Integrity Level (SIL) determination and the knowledge and understanding required to undertake a SIL verification study.

Different Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) will be considered in the course.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand and describe the meaning of Safety Integrity Level (SIL).
  • Appreciate the concept of failure rate and diagnostics.
  • Realize the criticality of defining failure modes.
  • Know the modes of operation and associated Target Failures Measures
  • Grasp the concept of Probability of Failure on Demand (PFD)
  • Account for common cause failures when assessing sub-systems with redundancy.
  • Determine and verify Safety Integrity Level (SIL)
