This seminar focuses primarily on the Design & Review aspect of the Safety related part of the SPLCs & associated control system elements against the current Industry Standards ISO-1 3849 part 1&2 (Safety of machinery- Safety related part of the control

Course Outline
After participating in the seminar, you will be able to:
• Apply suitable design criteria to SPLC programming to meet the performance level requirements as per ISO-13849 part 1
• Design cost effective safety solutions for your industry to meet regulatory compliance.
• Use general principles of design under instructor guidance on example projects for safety related part of the control system based on the architecture requirements of ISO-13849 part 1- 2006

Description With continuously emerging market demands for competitive technologies in today’s economy, more and more industries are utilizing safety programmable logic controllers (SPLC) based safety control systems instead of hardwired systems to achieve compliance under the requirements of Pre-Start Health and Safety Review as required by Section 7 of Ontario regulation for industrial establishments. This seminar focuses primarily on the Design and Review aspect of the Safety related part of the SPLCs and associated control system elements against the current Industry Standards ISO-1 3849 part 1 and 2 ( Safety of machinery- Safety related part of the control system). Objective

To familiarize participants with the concept of Safety PLCs versus non safe Process logic controllers (PLCs) and traditional Hardwired Safety system

Who Should Attend

Instrumentation and control engineers, design engineers, consulting engineers including those professional engineers conducting PSHSRs, plant engineers and instrumentation technicians and technologists, maintenance personnel and other individuals who work with instrumentation and control in process plants and want to develop a better understanding of current industry standard used in the design of SPLC programs to meet the requirement of industrial legislation.

Special Feature
The program is divided into four modules to be covered over the course of two day utilizing live Safety PLC demo unit.

Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
