Founded on February 2, 2002, by Dr. Michel Houtermans, Risknowlogy has been driven by a steadfast mission to make our home planet safer. We believe that a safe world contributes to happiness, well-being, and success, aligning with Aristotle's view that "happiness is the meaning and purpose of life." As human beings, we all strive for prosperity, and businesses aiming to achieve prosperity must prioritize safety and mitigate unnecessary risks.

Transferring Knowledge
Empowering Professionals

At Risknowlogy, we empower individuals and companies through practical training that yields immediate results in real-world job environments. Our certification programs validate practical experience, enabling professionals to demonstrate their competence to the world. We also provide the Business Master tool, an expert resource that enhances practitioners' effectiveness in their respective roles.


We are immensely proud of our training and certification programs' impact. With over 10,000 professionals trained worldwide, we have been at the forefront of teaching state-of-the-art functional safety practices. Individuals have secured new jobs and experienced salary increases, while companies have successfully sold their products due to our certifications. Moreover, end users have been able to expedite facility startups with our effective safety documentation.

Together We Thrive

At Risknowlogy, we recognize that we are nothing by ourselves. Ubuntu, the belief in the interconnectedness of humanity, is at the core of our values. We uphold our promises, constantly learn and apply new knowledge, and embrace freedom while encouraging responsibility. We acknowledge that there is always room for improvement and are committed to continuous growth.

Rooted in Experience

Our expertise in functional safety predates the release of the IEC 61508 standard in 1994. Our founders are all seasoned functional safety practitioners that handover their knowledge to the new generations of functional safety practitioners. Our extensive experience enables us to deliver unmatched value to our clients.
