Safety Instrumented Systems


Abhisam Software
Thousands of process plants all over the world use Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS for short), to protect people, equipment and the environment from catastrophe. During recent years, various countries and regions have made it mandatory to use these systems, to prevent accidents and mishaps.
Unfortunately however, knowledge about Safety Instrumented Systems is perceived by many people to be a hidden art that only a few chosen people know (or are capable of knowing), which is just not true. Any professional who has work experience and / or qualifies to work in the process industries can easily learn all about Safety Instrumented Systems.
Until now, however, there were few cost-effective resources that a person who wanted to know more about SIS in detail could refer to. Let us take a look at these now. These resources were mainly of three types; books on the subject, some online training courses and so called "free white papers" that one could find on the internet. The books are quite excellent, but you require to read, understand and digest, at least three of them (to gain a complete knowledge on the subject) that can be used in your work. This requires a lot of time that many people today simply cannot spare. Many online training courses are available, but they are mere copies and summaries of materials in the books and/ or power point presentations of long gone seminars in a new avatar. The topics in the white papers and other documents is pretty good, but it ranges from the very basic to the very complex and everything in between. Reading and understanding it is like trying to drink a glassful of water from a fire hose. Theoretically possible but practically impossible.
But now, there is an alternative-it is the newest e-learning course from Abhisam Software. This course on Safety Instrumented Systems is designed to make the learning experience comfortable and easy. Everything is explained in easy to understand terms, with plenty of graphics, interactive simulations and worked problems. Everything that you need to know about Safety Instrumented Systems, put together, in an easily digestible form, stripped of all the complexity, but still useful to impart skills to you that you can actually use in your work.
To reiterate once again, this course is NOT a rehashed power point presentation. It is a full fledged e-learning course with interactive animations, simulations, graphics and text. It also has many worked out example problems, to help understand the logic behind designing and operation of Safety Instrumented Systems.
