Best YouTube channels to learn Functional Safety in Process Industries

Safety and Security are the topmost aspects of process industries. In this post, I will show you the best YouTube Channels to learn Functional safety-related topics in Process Industries.

IEC 61511 is Fictional Safety Standards for Process Industries. Multiple things need to be considered for maintaining Functional Safety in Process Industries.

Functional Safety is divided into 4 Safety Life Cycle Stages as given below.

  • Analysis
  • Design
  • Implementation
  • Operation and Maintenance

For Each safety life cycle stage, there are multiple studies, analyses, and documentation prepared for functional safety. Like HAZOP, LOPA, SIL, and More.

To understand all these things, I will recommend some of the YouTube channels to learn about all these topics.

I will show you by using a table what things are included in the safety life cycle.
