Process Safety Systems – PLC vs Safety PLC (NC/SC Only)

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 - 3:00pm

About this Webinar:

Do you need a PLC (programmable logic controller) or a safety PLC? When regulations like OSHA Process Safety Management mandate you to have a process safety system, there are a variety of solutions you are allowed to implement. And even though regulations may not have changed much themselves, recent accident investigation reports show a trend of stricter scrutiny for using current engineering practice (RAGAGEP, Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practice). What should you be using for your automated system when there is a stringent safety requirement?

In this webinar, you will learn the differences between widely used process safety system types. We will also discuss:

  • The differences in technologies used (PLC vs Safety PLC)
  • How industry standards can influence the safety requirement of the system or equipment in question
  • The importance of safety & production
  • Practicality for RAGAGEP requirements
