Safety engineering: eLearning course

Safety engineering: eLearning course

This training program provides an introduction to the complex subject of safety engineering in industrial machines and systems.

The aim is to make participants more aware of the problems in the design aspects of safety engineering and help them understand safety engineering equipment and hazard analysis methods.

The training program is based on an amended version of the EC machinery directive 2006/42/EC.

How is the overall performance level of a technical safety measure determined? The training program explains concepts such as probability of failure (POF), diagnostic coverage (DC), common cause failure (CCF), redundancy, and diversity. A detailed explanation of all the components for safety equipment is also provided.
