Method Functional Safety

An Introduction to Functional Safety Training Course

Our =MethodIntroduction to Functional Safety” training course is run at your site or nominated venue and can be entirely customised to your needs. We decide together what you need from the training and then design something that is just right for you and your team.

The training maybe at board level discussing the legal aspects of compliance to the Functional Safety standards and the role that Process and Functional Safety have in understanding business risk and improving asset integrity. Or we may be training panel operators and instrument technicians to understand that a SIL rated safety function is not “just a trip”. Of course, we can also train engineering teams on how they must do their work to be compliant.

You may want to turn the course in to a marketing and sales activity and invite your customers to the training too. We would incorporate suitable sales messages in to the material.

=Method also delivers a Functional Safety Leadership Briefing.


The Course is delivered in-house only. It normally takes 4-hour but can be extended or shortened to meet your needs.
