    Functional safety in machine design and building

    Functional safety is freedom from unacceptable risk of physical injury or of damage to the health of people. Today, people go to work expecting a safe working environment. No matter if they operate a crane to erect a new high-rise in the busy city center or pull tree trunks in the silence of the big woods, they know they have to watch out for safety issues themselves, but basically they expect a safe machine
