Functional Safety & Machinery Safety Engineering

Comprehensive Functional Safety & Machinery Safety Services


Providing full lifecycle engineering for both Functional Safety Instrumented Systems and Machinery Safety Related Control Systems from hazard identification to fully operational protection schemes.


TÜV is an internationally recognised testing and certification organisation and an authority on Functional Safety Compliance. We have several engineers qualified, experienced and certified by the TÜV as Functional Safety Professionals. That coupled with our in-depth knowledge of general process control systems puts us in a good position to assist you through all stages of compliance.

Functional safety standards are just that, they are standards not regulations but all manufacturing and production facilities have an obligation to work to a “state of the art” functional safety standard. IEC 61511 is based on its parent standard IEC61508, they are both “state of the art” and referenced by the HSE.

Our functional safety and machinery safety capabilities complete our portfolio of services for the manufacturing process and industrial machinery industries. Cogent is dedicated to helping customers navigate the complex technical and regulatory challenges of today’s automation safety landscape.

Here is a list of the IEC International Standards we are compliant with:-

• IEC 61508
• IEC 61511
• EN ISO 12100
• IEC 62061
• EN ISO 13849-1
