SaFE Software application development Training

Our Safe Software Application Development Training offers a detailed overview of software development of applications for safety related systems. It aim to give participants a thorough understanding of functional safety principles, techniques, and measures with respect to software topics applied to the context of application development (software that runs on pre-certified components/sytems). Alongside practical examples, we cover various functional safety standards (ISO 13849, IEC 62061, IEC 61508-3, ISO 26262-6, and EN50128). This equips attendees with the knowledge to develop safe applications not just in compliance with standards but also with a practical understanding of their implications.

Who Benefits From This Training

This training is tailored to benefit a wide range of professionals, from project leaders to software developers and testers, who are involved in functional safety development of applications. It is particularly important for departments who approach this topic for the first time or need a refresh about the latest updates based on the state of the art (i.e. ISO 13849:2023, update of IEC 61508 3rd edition). Machine builders, system integrators, application engineers involved in safety application can benefit from a detailed and tailored explanation of the functional safety requirements applied to the desing, development and testing of applications.


The Safe Software Application Development Training has a duration of 2 days and covers the following topics:

  • Day 1: Functional Safety Basic, see also Training – Functional Safety Basic
  • Day 2:
    • Safe Application Development
      • Software Process Development for Application (tailoring and important aspects)
      • Software Design
      • Software Test and Verification
      • Tools for usage in safety development
      • Usage of pre-certified platforms
attending a training

The training contains practical exercises for most of the topics. Upon the training the attendee will be requested to provide a list of questions/topics to be adressed in detail. The training can be integrated with an additional day where the functional safety topics are applied to a specific customer project. In addition, it can be tailored based on customer needs (adding or removing topics, where required, focusing on specific industry standards, etc.).

Your Expertise After the Training

Upon completing this training, you will gain the ability to understand the concepts related to the development of applications for safety systems. You will be well-prepared to start deploying functional safety applications. You will understand the practical implication of the standard requirements (based on the relevant industry), applied to the context of application software development. Additionally, you will be able to engage with notified bodies and other third-party organizations regarding functional safety matters.
