Understanding SIL in Real Life

Let's conclude our discussion about SIL by contemplating the answer to the following question..are you just trying to meet specifications or are you designing a safety system?

Companies in industries around the world are expected to produce safe products and provide a secure working environment. This can be achieved by anticipating hazards that might occur and creating a safety system to combat them. The approach a company takes to control the risks and liabilities that go along with these hazards is an essential part of the safety process. 

Understanding SIL: Safety Instrumented System

The conversation around Safety Integrity Level (SIL) has picked up among the industrial community; but what exactly is everyone saying and how does it apply to YOUR process? 

Let’s attempt to break down this often-misunderstood concept and learn how it can be implemented properly. To fully understand a complex concept like SIL, there are a few other aspects to consider, last week we looked at functional safety, this week let's focus on Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS).
