As equipment failures can put human lives at risk and damage our ecosystem on a larger scale, ensuring system safety is an essential part of industrial systems, for instance in automated manufacturing, transportation, and the oil and gas industry. Industrial safety is defined by international standards, such as the IEC 61508, which provide tools and safety functions to systematically assess risks and prevent danger.
