Automobiles have been an essential part of our society for over 100 years. They transport our families, our goods, our dignitaries, and our military which is why safety and reliability are such critical components in the automobile industry. There is a certain comfort in acknowledging where ever you go, wherever you want to be, you will get to your destination safely thanks to the diligent efforts of HCRQ's system safety engineers.
Automotive safety practitioners are aware of ISO 26262 - "Road Vehicles — Functional Safety". One of the fundamental concepts of this standard is Safety Integrity Levels (SILs). In the U.S., HCRQ's history with SILs dates back further than anyone here. Add to this our foundation in system safety and software safety, which dates back to 1986, as well as courses in both areas, which date back to 1992 (see list of attendees), and you have experience and expertise that far exceeds any other consultants in the automotive sector.
