SafEUr - ECQA Certified Functional Safety Manager
The functional safety of modern products containing embedded systems has become a first priority in several industrial sectors. The IEC61508 group of standards require companies to have in place "Functional Safety Management". The objective of SafEUr is to create a European-wide accredited training and certification program for Functional Safety Managers, based on a skill card which is compliant to the European Qualification Framework. It will deliver modern e-Learning based training, that is based on practical case studies and best industry practices. This training will be complemented by a world-wide unique web-based integration platform for industry and academia in the domain of Embedded Systems. SafEUr trainers and trainees will be trained and certified all over Europe, assuring a major impact and sustainability of the program. High-impact international dissemination channels to industry and academia will be deployed in order to involve and inform external partners. Within the Europe-wide established framework of the ECQA a new project called SafEUr - Cerified Functional Safety Manager - with six partners coming from five European countries has been started in November 2011. The goal of SafEUr is to develop a europe-wide agreed syllabus and skills set for a Certified Functional Safety Manager with a clear focus on practice. The need for qualified safety personnel is obvious. The need for a commonly agreed skills set becomes clear, if one looks at the content of all the different trainings offered nowadays with respect to safety. Training material around practical case studies is currently being created for the following subjects: Introduction to Functional Safety Management Management of Functional Safety Engineering aspects of Functional Safety Legal aspects of Safety Safety on Product Level


Training material around practical case studies is currently being created for the following subjects:

  • Introduction to Functional Safety Management
  • Management of Functional Safety
  • Engineering aspects of Functional Safety
  • Legal aspects of Safety
