Part 1: FSE 101: Safety System Analysis
Looking to become a CFSE or CFSP? This is the course you'll need to pass the exam!
Also known as FSE 100, this course provides an overview of process industry safety engineering from the point of view of the Risk Analyst, Process Safety Coordinator, and Control Systems Design Engineer.
It delivers a complete overview of the functional safety lifecycle. The course reviews Process Hazard Analysis (PHA), Consequence Analysis, Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA), Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Target Selection, Safety Requirements Specification (SRS) generation, failure rates, device and system reliability, SIF verification, SIF detailed design and Operations requirements.
The purpose of FSE 101 is to set the stage for the safety lifecycle as a sound, logical and complete way to use safety instrumented systems to manage process plant risk. It goes on to present the basic techniques for analyzing risk and developing the requirements for any safety instrumented functions needed to reduce the risk to a tolerable level. The first five sections of FSE 101 cover the background and related context for the safety lifecycle. The last four sections of FSE 101 cover the main hazard identification, SIF definition and risk analysis sections of the safety lifecycle finishing with the documentation of these results in the safety requirements specification.
