Tackling Functional Safety Management for Machinery

Recording Date: August 2023

Functional safety management is critical for managing and mitigating systematic failures that can occur throughout the safety lifecycle. Implementing a robust functional safety management plan following the requirements of IEC 62061 and ISO 13849 (new suggested functional safety management steps added in the 2023 release) can improve the consistency of functional safety lifecycle steps and help to ensure the accuracy of the work performed. This webinar will cover the importance of functional safety management for machinery applications, cover trends exida has identified from working with many different organizations in the machinery industry, and guidance on how to use templates as a spring board for developing an effective functional safety management plan.
