    Safety Instrumented Systems: A Life-Cycle Approach

    By Paul Gruhn, PE, CFSE, and Simon Lucchini, CFSE, MIEAust, CPEng



    Understanding the safety life cycle as outlined in ISA/IEC 61511 isn’t enough to implement a safety system. You also need to know how to design, install, commission, and operate one, and to have access to real-world examples,” says author Simon Lucchini. Authors Lucchini and Paul Gruhn have compiled almost 80 years of real-life experience and lessons learned into this easy-to-read reference that contains real-world examples of designing, installing, commissioning, programming, managing, and maintaining safety instrumented systems.

    This book covers the entire safety instrumented system life cycle; I’m not aware of any other book that does the same,” says Gruhn. What does this book do that others don’t?

    • It provides a high-level overview of the ISA84/IEC 61511 standard.
    • It explains how to align the performance requirements of ISA/IEC 61511 with project execution.
    • It provides guidance for making the right decisions about safety systems at the right time.
    • It provides insights about key project milestones so that functional safety engineers can create more effective designs.
    • It analyzes actual situations and experiences to help people learn from the mistakes of others and to help them better troubleshoot their own applications.

    This is a practical, how-to text designed to guide functional safety engineers and others in process industry safety to the right decisions about safety systems at the right time.
