IUCLID Seminar for REACH, 2-day seminar: 4th/5th of June 24 in Dresden  

Avoid accidents: HAZOP/ LOPA/ Human Factors/ Functional Safety Seminar;

HAZOP/ PAAG-LOPA/ functional safety/ Human Factors/ EN 61511-3: 2019-Seminar

  • Risk Management

  • Safety Instrumented Systems

  • Mechanical Safeguards

  • Human Factors

  • Functional Safety

The new EU standard EN 61511-3:2019 "Functional Safety" describes the determination of tolerable risk and "probabilistic" methods for the analysis and control of risks in technical processes and installations of the process industry by appropriate protection systems and the specification of their necessary reliability.

The goal of risk mitigation is to comply with tolerance criteria, which must be set out in the risk matrix for various serious effects of loss events. Of the methods described in EN 61511-3, the simplest way to determine  requirements for the reliability of protection systems (expressed by Safety Integrity Level (SIL) for "instrumented" (Electric/ Electronic systems or Independent Protection Layer (IPL) for mechanical systems) are the use of the Risk Graph Method and the use of the Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) The EN 61511-3:2017 gives only few numerical values as to the frequency of initiating events or probabilities for failure of safeguards. In the seminar, however, numerous international data are explained.

Our topics:

  • Risk assessment
  • HAZOP-Study and Regulations
  • Risk Graph method and other methods (e.g. FMEA)
  • Risk tolerance criteria, risk matrix
  • LOPA
  • Method Comparison
  • Human Factors
  • Functional safety

Our seminar will take place again in 2024 in Dresden. Dates will be published soon. 

Our speakers:

  • Dr. rer. nat. Karl-Werner Thiem, HAZOP/LOPA-Moderator, Consultant
  • Dipl.-Ing. Wilfried Hilbig, expert for plant safety, Consultant
  • Dipl. Ing. Stephanie Bauer, HSE, Fraunhofer-Institut für Silicatforschung ISC
  • Dipl.-Ing. Karsten Litzendorf, Engineering Office Litzendorf
