Module 5 - Operational Parameters is part of the full Process Safety Management eLearning package, which provides an integrated overview of the 20 elements in 15 modular presentations sessions which are each 45 minutes in length.

This module can be undertaken as an individual module or altogether as a package on the EI’s learning management system, with recorded presentations and exercises taught by a leading expert in process safety and a former deputy director of the UK Health & Safety Executive. Learning Objectives:

• Understand the importance of specifying normal and safe operating limits,
• Describe how the determination of instrument and alarm systems is linked to operating parameters
• Understand the functional link with Operational procedures

Key Points to cover:

• Purpose: To determine the safe operating margins to protect primary containment over the designated lifetime of the plant and equipment. To set thresholds of action / intervention for control systems and alarms.

• Learning Points:
o Determination of information and control systems – functional safety, SIS and SIL
o Plant status information and action thresholds
o Aligned to primary containment failure or degradation modes
o Human factors taken into account in how maintenance of safety margins is achieved, and alarm set points designated
o Control logic should be clear and well communicated
o Reliable functioning during start up, operation and shutdown
o Capable of withstanding cyber attack
o Recorded and documented – PID, Functional Loops
