Having been a member of the IChemE for a number of years we are delighted to announce that ENGIE Fabricom UK will be hosting one of their member group events (a talk on functional safety) at our Grimsby offices on the 6th November.
We will be facilitating a talk on functional safety which comes on the back of ENGIE headlining this year’s Hazards 29 as one of the main sponsors that has since sparked an increased interest in our process safety consultancy services.
The talk is designed to provide an insight into the recent changes to BS EN (IEC) 61511:2017 (Edition 2) which governs functional safety across the process industries. Although it is not a legal requirement to follow the standard it is deemed “state of the art” and is one of the many standards that the HSE will use to make a judgement against the process industries.
As such, we will explore how process engineers and process safety specialists are impacted as a result of the functional life-cycle and the ways in which it operates. In addition to this, we will also be discussing the impact of the new requirements when it comes to security risk assessment (both physical and cyber) and whether such changes will impact on the design and process risk assessment stages.
We look forward to welcoming you to our offices in November.
