About Method Functional Safety

Best Practice Engineering =Method

Method Functional Safety - part of the Method Group

Dot it right, do it once=Method was formed in 2013 by our CEO Dil Wetherill primarily as a functional safety training company. The business quickly grew to take on consultancy work with a focus on best practice engineering. We gradually took on additional consultants wherever we found people who we trusted and who shared our ethos.

Today we are an independent, employee-owned business with specialist practitioners who operate across all areas of the Functional Safety Lifecycle. Our HQ is in Hitchin Hertfordshire with teams in Stirling Scotland, Europe and North America.

=Method is a Companion Company of the Institute of Measurement and Control.

Why we do what we do

=Method will give those organisations and individuals responsible for managing major accident hazards confidence that they have followed relevant good practice.

When you work with =Method you can be confident that you have done it right. You are adequately protecting people, the environment and the commercial interests of your company and your clients. You can relax, knowing that you are safe and secure, having implemented relevant good practice effectively and efficiently.

How we do what we do

We immerse ourselves in the development and understanding of standards and guidance, to ensure we can give the best training and advice. Where clients ask us to deliver services, we ensure our work is an exemplar of compliance and relevant good practice.

We work with a broad range of different clients across different industries. We continually review our advice to ensure that we can suggest efficient, cost effective and workable ways of implementing practices and procedures to ensure safety and security.

Our advice will be delivered with humility and empathy. We will communicate difficult and potentially unpopular advice where compliance requires this.

What we do

We deliver training, mentoring, consultancy and services to support our clients, so that they can take responsibility for their own safety and security.

Our moto is "Do it Right" - by which we mean "be compliant", but we also mean "do it efficiently". All of our work is focused on these two elements.

The wider =Method group

Method Functional Safety Ltd is part of the Method Safety and Security group. Our entire group shares the same approach to best practice and high-quality people. Our sister companies have their own specialist teams who we work very closely with to provide integrated client support across the lifecycle.
