Functional safety

Functional safety is a part of overall safety that depends on the correct and timely functioning of systems and functions to manage potentially hazardous situations, processes, and equipment. Functional safety affects for example machine and equipment manufacturers but also industrial system integrators as well as component manufacturers supplying parts and components of critical systems.

Our services for the industry include independent safety assessments, to confirm the safety and compliance of the products of our customers. But we also provide our customers with trainings as well as analytics and other advisory services, to support our customers with their development work and to make sure that they have adequate competences and processes to succeed.
