What is a Functional Safety Engineer?

Functional Safety Engineers play an essential role in manufacturing industries, ensuring that manufacturing facilities are risk assessed, designed, verified, implemented, validated and maintained to minimize risks to operation staff.

Their responsibilities include:

  • Risk Assessment: Identifying potential hazards and assessing the level of risk associated with them.
  • Safety Analysis: Conducting in-depth safety analyses to determine the necessary safety measures.
  • Safety Implementation: Collaborating with design and development teams to integrate safety measures into the system or product.
  • Documentation: Maintaining comprehensive records of safety requirements, analyses and implementation.
  • Testing and Validation: Conducting rigorous testing and validation processes to ensure that safety requirements are met.

At Insight Engineering, we believe that safety is not just a checkbox on a project plan but a fundamental principle that guides everything we do. Our decision to expand our team to include six Functional Safety Engineers underscores our commitment to providing our clients with the highest level of safety expertise and service.

We look forward to partnering with you on your next project and ensuring it meets the highest safety standards in the industry. Stay tuned for more exciting developments from Insight Engineering as we continue to provide services in engineering and safety assurance.
