Functional Safety for Machinery Engineer Certification

Course Number: SAF-TUV2T

The standards regarding functional safety and relevant laws and directives demand that people and organizations performing responsible (accountable) tasks during all relevant life cycle phases of a machine must achieve and prove the required competencies.

In this training, students will learn how current standards dictate the design and proof of functional safety for machines. The participant will learn how safety devices and components are assembled and applied to reduce hazards from machinery so the necessary safety for people and environment is achieved. Practical examples will demonstrate possibilities regarding machine protection.

In addition to the technical requirements, students will learn about organizational measures, quality assurance techniques, and documentation for lifecycle design and validation.

After completing this course, students should understand and be able to use IEC 60204-1, IEC 62061, ISO 12100, ISO 13849-1, -2, and other relevant machine functional safety standards.

Students who want Functional Safety for Machinery Engineer Certification (TÜV Rheinland) must meet all eligibility requirements and pass the exam scheduled on the fifth day.
