With modern safety standards, utilizing terms such as SIL and Performance Levels, there are efforts in understanding how to perform proper calculations. An aspect that often is missed is the validation. Is validation done through design, testing or both? Join us for this informative webinar, where we will review some of the characteristics with validation in both design and physical testing of a safety system. Some examples will be provided with an overview of some of the validation principles. A discussion as to why validation is important and what can potential happen if an effective validation is not done.
