The International Society of Automation (www.isa.org) is a nonprofit professional association that sets the standard for those who apply engineering and technology to improve the management, safety, and cybersecurity of modern automation and control systems used across industry and critical infrastructure. Founded in 1945, ISA develops widely used global standards; certifies industry professionals; provides education and training; publishes books and technical articles; hosts conferences and exhibits; and provides networking and career development programs for its 36,000 members and 350,000 customers around the world.
ISA owns Automation.com, a leading online publisher of automation-related content, and is the founding sponsor of The Automation Federation (www.automationfederation.org), an association of non-profit organizations serving as “The Voice of Automation.” Through a wholly owned subsidiary, ISA bridges the gap between standards and their implementation with the ISA Security Compliance Institute (www.isasecure.org) and the ISA Wireless Compliance Institute (www.isa100wci.org).

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:
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.

All ISA training courses provide real-life examples and case histories, further reinforcing the practical and relevant nature of ISA training. To ensure flexibility and to meet varying customer needs, ISA offers safety training at a variety of locations: at ISA headquarters in North Carolina, at ISA's many regional training centers, and onsite directly at customer facilities.
All of ISA's safety training courses can be taught directly at your company location through ISA's Onsite Training services. Contact ISA at +1 919-549-8411 or at email@example.com more information.
