Functional safety management is at the core of every SIL project

At Risknowlogy, we recognise that Functional Safety Management (FSM) lies at the heart of every SIL project. When you and your company master FSM, achieving the desired SIL becomes a reality. We offer various functional safety management system certifications to support you on this journey.

We are driven by our mission to make functional safety accessible and manageable for all. Our deep expertise, unwavering commitment to excellence, and human-centric approach enable us to empower organisations like yours to excel in functional safety management. Embrace the power of FSM with Risknowlogy and unlock new possibilities for SIL projects.

End users rely on a robust FSM system to conduct assessments and audits. They must evaluate EPCs, engineering companies, system integrators, and product suppliers. Furthermore, they must assess and audit the operational phase of the safety lifecycle. FSM serves as a core principle for end users, ensuring that installed safety functions and systems maintain their SIL levels. We would like to strengthen your FSM practices and enhance safety assurance.

EPCs and engineering companies collaborate closely with end users, playing a crucial role in the early stages of the safety lifecycle. The work they perform determines the selection and construction of the correct safety functions. FSM is essential in executing these stages effectively, enabling the delivery of safety functions and systems that truly align with end users' needs. Increasingly, end users require FSM systems from EPCs and engineering partners that adhere to functional safety standards. We'd like to encourage your organization to meet these demands with confidence.

System integrators, as suppliers to end users, require a robust FSM system. They are responsible for building and integrating safety functions and systems that will be installed in the field. Their focus primarily revolves around application programming and hardware/software integration. Accurate execution of these tasks is crucial to ensure the delivery of the right safety functions to end users. Our expertise can help you establish a comprehensive FSM system, minimising errors and maximising the effectiveness of your safety solutions.

Many product suppliers must implement an FSM system compliant with IEC 61508. They need to practice functional safety management throughout the entire hardware and software development lifecycle, ensuring the appropriate measures are taken to prevent and control failures. Embedding these practices into their FSM system is critical for their success. Join forces with us to strengthen your functional safety management capabilities and deliver reliable, compliant products.

Step by Step

STEP 1. GAP ANALYSIS - Bridging the Divide

At Risknowlogy, we understand that many companies already have established quality systems and procedures in place. Our first step is to conduct a thorough gap analysis, where we align your existing practices with the requirements of the functional safety standard. By minimizing the workload and leveraging your existing framework, we ensure a seamless transition towards certification. Together, we gain a clear understanding of your current standing and identify the areas that require attention and improvement.

STEP 2. DOCUMENT REVIEW - Building a Solid Foundation

You provide us with the necessary documentation that supports your FSM system, and our expert team meticulously reviews and verifies it against the FSM requirements. This collaborative process may involve iterations until all documentation is compliant, ensuring that your FSM system is robust and reliable. With Risknowlogy, you can trust that your FSM system is backed by solid documentation, instilling confidence in your stakeholders and enhancing your overall compliance.

STEP 3. CERTIFICATION - Recognizing Excellence

Once all documentation has been thoroughly verified and assessed, we issue a comprehensive certification report and FSM certificate. These invaluable documents serve as indisputable evidence to any party, whether it be government entities, insurance providers, clients, or management, that your FSM system fully complies with the functional safety standard. With Risknowlogy's stamp of approval, you can proudly demonstrate your commitment to excellence and gain a competitive edge in the industry.

STEP 4. periodic AUDITS - Ensuring Continual Improvement

Recognizing that an FSM system is dynamic and ever-evolving, we emphasize the importance of periodic audits. Through regular audits, we ensure that your FSM system remains effective and aligned with the evolving functional safety landscape.  A successful audit culminates in the re-certification of your FSM system, affirming its continued relevance and compliance. With Risknowlogy, you can stay ahead of the curve and keep your FSM system and certification up to date, setting new benchmarks for operational excellence.

Certification in Two Phases

FSM System - Phase 1 Certification: Building a Solid Foundation

At Risknowlogy, we understand that functional safety management is crucial across industries. Our Phase 1 certification focuses on standard functional safety management procedures and documentation essential for compliance, regardless of your company's role - an end user, EPC, engineering company, system integrator, or product manufacturer. This foundational certification establishes a robust FSM system that forms the bedrock of your functional safety endeavours.

FSM system - Phase 2 Certification: Tailored for Excellence

Building upon the Phase 1 certification, Phase 2 certification delves deeper into your specific industry and operational requirements. We address the unique functional safety management procedures and documentation needed for the lifecycle phases relevant to your company. Whether you are an end user, EPC, engineering company, system integrator, or product manufacturer, our phase 2 certification ensures that your FSM system aligns precisely with the nature of your work and the applicable lifecycle phases. By tailoring our approach, we empower you to achieve optimal functional safety outcomes and elevate your industry standing.
