Safety engineering: The main aim of safety engineering is to protect people.

Functional safety is an indispensable component in modern machine and plant construction. It is important to comply with guidelines and thus make future-proof applications possible.

We have compiled a wealth of information on the subject of functional safety for you and present current guidelines such as the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and EN ISO 13849-1.

Both guidelines have been in force since the end of 2009 - we inform you about details and the steps that EN ISO 13849-1, for example, provides for in principle in order to design a safe machine.
