Addressing your challenges

Are your staff fully conversant with the requirements of IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 or do they need additional training?

 

The international standards IEC 61508, IEC 61511, IEC 62061 and IEC 61800-5-2 are widely recognised as a benchmark for good practice in the management, design, application and operation of safety instrumented systems. It is therefore important to have a good understanding of the standards and how they apply.
