Functional Safety Engineer to Become Favored in the Instrument Industry

30/12/14

Recently, Bureau Veritas, the world-renowned inspection and certification service provider, has awarded the first batch of “Safety Instrumented System (SIS) Functional Safety Engineer” certificate to the engineers from more than ten companies including CNOOC. After a period of systematic training and rigorous testing and screening, a total of 11 engineers obtained the qualification certificate. According to the personnel in charge of the functional safety certification in Bureau Veritas, since increasing requirements have been set on enterprise production and operating activities, and companies with international functional safety engineer qualification are gaining competitive advantages in domestic and international project bidding, the demand for functional safety engineers is rocketing, which means the “Functional Safety Engineer” certificate authorized by Bureau Veritas will become favored in domestic enterprises.

The functional safety training course is designed to provide systematic technical training for process industry engineers and functional safety-related staff to improve their capability to develop security products in compliance with IEC 61511 standard, as well as advance their expertise, enabling them to prove themselves with professional certification. The training offered by Bureau Veritas mainly targets at the engineers who are engaged in the application of automatic-control safety instrumented system in process industries (petrochemical plants, chemical plants, coal-fired power plants, etc.), including the corporate executives who need to understand IEC 61508 & IEC 61511 concepts and guidelines, the staff and supervisors responsible for risk assessment, the supervisors responsible for safety instrumented system design, the engineers engaged in safety instrumented system design, risk analysis and risk mitigation, as well as the engineers involved in any safety tasks within the life cycle of safety instrumented system.

In the initial training in China, Bureau Veritas invited internationally-known trainers who have nearly two decades of experience in process safety technology and have presided over the design, procurement, integration, installation and commissioning of the software and hardware in several national SIS, ESD, ITCC projects. In 2015, Bureau Veritas will fully leverage its teaching and technical resources in Europe and increase investment in China, creating a more favorable training environment for the functional safety engineers from domestic enterprises.
