Training at SICK: Functional Safety on machines

Functional Safety Engineer_Teaser

Even at the development and design stage of a machine, it is important to consider how it will ensure safety – all too often, accidents are the result of a failure to carry out adequate risk assessments in advance. When implementing and commissioning a machine, residual risks can be avoided by installing additional safety technology. Ultimately, the safety of machinery depends on the safety system operating correctly as well as other risk-reducing measures. This is where functional safety comes in.

However, safety devices alone will not suffice: they also have to be used correctly. And not just when it comes to their configuration or programming. Safe operation is crucial at a much earlier stage: right at the start of the project. In order to guarantee safe and seamless processes, we need reliable sensors and systems. Even the quality assurance systems that accompany the development and implementation of safety concepts have to be reliable and transparent. Continue reading
