Dil Wetherill was one of 5 speakers who were all part of the InstMC’s FS-SIG Executive Committee (Functional Safety – Special Interest Group). Topics covered included:

  • SIL Determination, Tolerable Risk and ALARP
  • SIF Design and Compliance Evaluation
  • SIS Product Selection (presented by Dil)
  • SIS Cyber Security
  • SIS Operation and Maintenance

We were particularly grateful for the presentation by Paul Hibberson from the HSE on the subject of Cyber Security. Paul discussed the development of this subject and how the HSE will be approaching its implementation in 2019.
