Objective of FuSa

 

The objective of functional safety is freedom from unacceptable risk of physical injury or of damage to the health of people either directly or indirectly (through damage to property or to the environment).  Our goal is to help you prevent any damage to persons and objects which are caused by failures or malfunctions of

  • electrical systems
  • electronic systems as well as
  • software components.

Functional safety is intrinsically end-to-end in scope in that it has to treat the function of a component or subsystem as part of the function of the whole system. This means that whilst functional safety standards focus on electrical, electronic, and programmable systems (E/E/PS), the end-to-end scope means that in practice functional safety methods have to extend to the non-E/E/PS parts of the system that the E/E/PS actuates, controls or monitors.
