Learn how managing the entire lifecycle of Independent Protection Layers will ensure effectiveness, auditability and independence.

This Provenance Consulting-sponsored webinar reviews the current standards and industry practices for IPL management and how to assess the effectiveness of their application in your existing management systems. You’ll learn how managing the IPL lifecycle helps you meet the requirements of independence, auditability and efficacy of the devices, processes and maintenance that prevent accidents. You’ll identify specific and systemic common causes of failure between IPLs and explore how lifecycle management ensures they do not overlap and lead to an incident caused by a deviation in the process. By the end of the hour, you’ll understand the various steps in IPL lifecycle management and how standards and best practices can be used as helpful guides for PSM engineers, facilitators, team leaders and others.

Take a look at your agenda:

  • Why managing the entire lifecycle of IPLs is critical
  • Common causes of failure between IPLs
  • Steps in IPL lifecycle management
  • Effective IPL management practices and how to apply them
