The Safety Critical Systems Handbook, Fifth Edition presents the latest guidance on safety-related systems that guard workers and the public against injury or death and also address environmental risks. It has been fully revised and contains additional material on risk assessment, cyber security, COMAH and HAZID, published guidance documents/standards, quantified risk assessment and new worked examples. The book provides a comprehensive guide to the revised IEC 61508 standard as well as the 2016 IEC 61511. It enables engineers to determine the required integrity targets and to assess if proposed or existing equipment meet the safety integrity levels required by the various standards and guidance.
