Practical Methods for Complying With the ANSI/ISA 18.2 Alarm Management Standard

Alarm management has become a highly important topic, and the subject of a number of articles, technical symposia, and books. After 6 years of development, the new standard “ANSI/ISA-18.2-2009 Management of Alarm Systems for the Process Industries” is now published at www.isa.org.

The issuance of ISA-18.2 is a significant and important event for the chemical, petrochemical, refining, power generation, pipeline, mining and metals, pharmaceutical, and similar industries using modern control systems with alarm functionality. It sets forth the work processes for designing, implementing, operating, and maintaining a modern alarm system presented in a “life cycle” format. It will also have significant regulatory impact.

ISA-18.2 is quite different from the “usual” ISA standard. It is about work processes of people. Alarm management isn’t really about hardware or software; it’s about work processes that relate to the alarm system.

The webinars will cover the new ISA-18.2, specifically:
  • The ANSI/ISA-18.2 Alarm Management Standard
