1-Day Training Course
This course is aimed at those involved in the design of machinery safety-related control functions (or related system components) that need to achieve a performance level (PL ‘a’ to ‘e’) in accordance with ISO 13849.
The course covers the principles of functional safety as applied to modern industrial machinery, from how the required safety performance is determined through to the design of compliant safety systems. Throughout the course, a thorough overview of the standard is provided which is re-enforced with practical examples and exercises to show how it is applied.
The exercises focus on the quantifiable parameters such as mean time to failure, diagnostic coverage, common cause failure, and system architectures (categories). Once the parameters for system components have been thoroughly covered, the method for establishing the overall PL for a safety function implemented by a combination of components is worked through.
A comprehensive training manual is provided for each attendee, based on the lecture slides, together with a certificate of attendance for personnel training records.
The course is particularly intended for engineers (electrical/electronic /mechanical). Frequent question and answer sessions are included for clarification and group discussion.
