Lesson 1 Chapter 1
Welcome to the SIS Foundation online training course. My name is Jon Keswick, and I’m the course author.
This online course is designed to provide a complete introduction to functional safety and safety instrumented systems employed in the process industry sector.
The material is based upon many reference sources, but the primary reference is international standard IEC 61511.
This standard is a European Norm and is also recognized best practice in the United States – originally published as ISA 84, and now known as ANSI/ISA-61511.
The course is split into relatively short modules in the seven main topic areas shown here.
