Functional Safety Training, Audit & Assessment Services.

We specialize in training and assessment for process and machinery safety applications according to IEC 61511 / ISA 61511, IEC 62061 & IEC 61508

If you are looking for functional safety training and don't want the hassle of travel or fixed training dates, then look no further. We have developed modular online courses designed for TEAM LEARNING of functional safety principles of IEC 61508 and specialised training for the safety instrumented system safety life-cycle of IEC 61511 / ISA 61511.

The IEC 61511 (also known as ISA 61511) safety life-cycle is aimed at applications where safety instrumented systems (SIS) are used for risk reduction in the process industry sector - including chemicals, oil and gas, pulp and paper, pharmaceutical manufacturing, food and beverage, and non-nuclear power generation.

The requirements of IEC 61511 apply to the entire supply chain involved in the delivery of an SIS, not just the end user. This means equipment suppliers, software providers, engineering services companies, consultants and system integrators.

eFunctionalSafety provides training and online resources which can assist with getting your team up to speed with the IEC 61511 / ISA 61511 standard.

ONLINE self-paced 
e-Learning for TEAMS

You will need functional safety training for your team if you are working on any project or industrial process plant that has safety functions with a safety integrity level (SIL) requirement. These occur in oil & gas, power generation, chemical and pharmaceutical production, pulp and paper and others.

IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 training is required for:

  • Project managers involved with setting up projects involving safety systems
  • All personnel involved with SIL target selection
  • Electrical, control and instrumentation professionals writing safety requirements specifications
  • Engineers involved with designing SIF and SIS
  • Validation/Testing technicians and engineers
  • Operations and maintenance personnel

The IEC 61511 standard requires that all personnel involved in projects or operations of safety instrumented systems (SIS) are "competent for the activities for which they are accountable".

Online training is never going to make anyone fully competent, but it's a great starting point.

"Taking a structured training course is part of everyone's competence journey."


Excellent course for operation, design and process engineering . Subjects well designed, organised and presented perfectly with practical example.
