Functional Safety for Machine Controls

This resource is published by Sick Sensor Intelligence


When implementing technical protective measures (also referred to as “safeguards”) from the hierarchy of controls, as discussed in Part 3 of this series (The Risk Reduction Process Utilizing a Hierarchy of Controls), each risk reduction measure will be associated with a safety function or combination of safety functions. In order for these safety functions to be designed and installed to a degree of reliability commensurate with the risk level of the associated hazard(s), the concepts of functional safety must be applied.
