About Method Functional Safety

A warm welcome from the =Method team

=Method began life in March 2013, trading as Risknowlogy Ltd – the UK division of the global Group. In March 2017, the management team bought out the shares held by the Risknowlogy Group to establish =Method as an independent, employee owned business with a focus on the distinctive needs of the UK market – providing training, consultancy and certification services in the field of functional safety.

The =Method team has the capability and competence to support all aspects of the functional safety lifecycle for IEC 61508, IEC 61511 and IEC 62061.

Functional Safety is what we do. It’s all we do. It’s what we do every day. If you would like to discuss the challenges you’re facing, feel free to call. There’s no obligation and we like to help.


=Method is here to help your business understand and comply with Functional Safety standards IEC 61508, IEC 61511 and IEC 62061.

We can train your staff, provide consultancy to kick-start or improve what you do and help you to develop SIL capable products. If certification is your goal, we can assist with that too - for people, procedures, packages or products. We issue certificates as =Method, but also work with other certification partners too. We focus on service excellence with a practical delivery. We understand the regulations in detail and how they can be efficiently applied. It’s what we do every day.
