Safety and Quality Control Engineering

Safety and Quality Control Engineering

This program is for engineers and technicians who wish to develop their knowledge of the design and implementation of safety in electrical, automation and instrumented systems in industrial processes. Safety control systems are widely used in hazardous processes to protect people, the environment and equipment against serious harm. Many countries look for compliance to international standards IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 as a benchmark of acceptable quality in design and management of safety controls. This program will explain the key requirements of the IEC 61511 standard for all stages of the safety project from hazard and risk assessment studies through to hardware and software engineering and on to the maintenance and proof testing regimes.
