Functional safety

Functional safety is an area of overall safety that depends on the correct functioning of systems and functions to manage potentially hazardous situations, processes, and equipment. The topic typically affects e.g. machine and equipment manufacturers, but also industrial system integrators and component manufacturers who want to facilitate the use of their products as part of critical systems.

Our services for the industry cover e.g. independent safety assessments, training, analytics as well as other advisory and support services, to support our customers with their development work and processes.
