Functional Safety Made Easy

On 7 April, we held a joint event with the IET Safety Community. Ron Pierce, the Community chairman, gave an interesting presentation introducing the key concepts of functional safety, illustrated with anecdotes from his career working with critical systems.  As one of standardisation committee members responsible for Part 3 of IEC 61508, explain how some of the issues are tackled by the international standard for functional safety of programmeable safety-critical systems.

If you missed the presentation or want a recap, you can download the slides from our Files area.
