Safety is defined as the freedom from unacceptable risk of physical injury or of damage to the health of people, either directly, or indirectly as a result of damage to property or to the environment. Functional safety is part of the overall safety that depends on a system or equipment operating correctly in response to its inputs. It also considers protection against human errors, hardware failures, environmental stress etc. by design as per life cycle approach.
The IEC 61508 is an international standard published by International Electro technical Commission which consists of techniques on how to apply, design, install and maintain safety systems. It is an umbrella standard for functional safety from which industry specific standards are derived. The IEC 61511 is a technical publication by International Electro technical Commission which lays down practices and requirements in the engineering of safety instrumented systems that ensure the safety of an industrial process through automation. The process industry sector includes many types of processes such as refineries, petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper and non- nuclear power generation.
