Functional Safety &
Safety Systems Management
National and International standards for functional safety directly influence how safety systems are managed throughout the entirety of the safety lifecycle. Designers, manufacturers and system owners implement safety through processes, systems and product design, operations and maintenance phases of the lifecycle.
All contributors to the solutions encompassing any safety contribution are responsible for demonstrating conformance to the requirements of the most recently approved nationally and internationally recognised functional safety standards.
Functional safety must be developed and validated through all the relevant phases of the safety lifecycle, i.e. from concept through to system deactivation/decommissioning, this includes the development of the safety requirements specification during the design phase, operations and maintenance as well as safety system modifications during the lifecycle, it is critical to recognise and qualify the impact of the modification to the safety system.
