Understanding Safety Integrity Level
(SIL)
What does SIL mean?
Safety Integrity Level
A measure of probability to fail on demand(PFD) of the SIS.
It is statistical representation of the integrity of the SIS when a
process demand occurs.
A demand occurs whenever the process reaches the trip
condition and causes the SIS to take action.
There are 4 SIL levels. SIL Levels are measures of how we
achieve function safety.
Applies to the complete safety function/loop
Higher SIL means
Stricter requirements.
Safety Function fails less and thus plant protection is available more.

8 Training: Lunch & Learn Session
Understanding Safety Integrity Level
(SIL)
SIL is how we measure the performance of safety functions
carried out by safety instrumented systems
SIL must be viewed from 3 perspectives
Process Owners
Which Safety function do I need and how much do I need?
Engg. Companies, System Integrators, Product Developers
How do I Build SIL compliant safety devices, function or systems?
Plant Operators
How do I operate, maintain and repair safety functions and systems to
maintain identified SIL levels?
