• Safety

    The ISA84 standard was one of the main sources of standards on process safety that became the IEC standards 61508 and 61511, the international standards for process safety. ISA has been writing standards and textbooks, tutorials and teaching about safety since its beginnings.

    The ISA web site has information on hazardous locations and how to operate inside them, as well as leak detection and gas detection technologies and techniques.

    Here you will find deep, actionable information on process safety, functional safety, plant and machine safety and how to design safety system HAZOPs (hazard and operability study), create SIS (safety instrumented systems) using designed SIL (safety integrity level) calculations and how to maintain safety systems properly through both calculation and partial-stroke testing.

    Here you will learn to design HMIs and rationalize and improve alarm management systems so that human factor errors will be lessened dramatically.
