Topic outline

  • We are all familiar with the hazards of energy (thermal, electrical, kinetic, etc.) and toxicity. But functioning is also a source of danger. Yet, this functioning concerns many systems such as industrial installations or transport means (plane, train, car). This new hazardous phenomenon is revealed, for example, by the malfunctioning of these systems (failures or deviations), but also by their misuse, both of which can have dramatic consequences. 

    Functional safety offers an original approach to controlling this new hazard. Its interest is demonstrated by its adoption by all industrial sectors: process, automotive, railway, aviation, machine, nuclear, etc. This module will allow you to discover this new perspective on safety.
