    Protecting people and assets in automation environments

    Expert-led safety training with real-world application from a global leader in automation and control training

    Process safety and preventing catastrophic accidents is a critical concern for all manufacturing and process plant employees. The International Society of Automation (ISA) is a world leader in training automation and control professionals on the proven safety standards, technologies, and procedures that can identify and mitigate safety hazards in industrial environments.

    ISA has been at the forefront of developing safety standards in manufacturing and process industries for decades. In 1986, ISA first released the ISA84 standard: Functional Safety-Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) for the Process Industry Sector, which enables manufacturers to systematically and continuously identify, reduce, and manage process safety risks. A series of ISA84 (IEC 61511) standards has since been developed, further improving functional safety throughout the world, particularly in the chemical, petrochemical, and oil and gas industries, thus reversing the trend of dangerous failures in industrial automation.

    During this time, ISA also introduced several other vital automation standards to improve safety in fossil fuel plants and in the operation of burner management systems (ISA77) and nuclear power facilities (ISA67). To boost awareness about the need for plant safety and increase compliance with sound safety practices, ISA offers a wide variety of training courses, as well as certificate programs, focused directly on ISA and other well-accepted industry safety standards.

    ISA is continually broadening and strengthening its safety-centric instructional and educational resources. From process safety fundamentals and SIS design to advanced Safety Integrity Level selection and verification-and everything in between-ISA covers plant safety from every angle and across all systems, disciplines, and topics including:

    • Abnormal Condition Management
    • Alarm Management
    • Burner Management
    • Engineering/Procurement/Construction
    • Fire and Gas
    • Field Devices
    • Machinery
    • Nuclear
    • Offshore
    • Pipeline
    • Security
    • Software
    • Tank Farms
    • Wireless

    ISA's world-renowned safety experts provide the comprehensive, practical instruction needed to immediately apply knowledge in the workplace, and through a wide variety of learning formats.
