System Safety calls for a risk management strategy based on identification, analysis of hazards and application of remedial controls using a systems-based approach
Experts in analyzing and integrating safety into systems since 1988, it all began with the THERAC-25 cancer therapy machine following its accidents. Since then we have provided consulting services in Defense, Aerospace, Rail Systems (light*, heavy, high speed, commuter, subway), UAVs, Automotive, Medical Devices, Nuclear Power and Process Control. *HCRQ is receiving interest from Metrolinx, Powell, and Ontario Ministry of Transportation just to mention a few. We also work in Human Systems Integration (HSI) situations where we closely interface with Human Factors Engineers (HFEs). Our services in the field include off-the-shelf and customized sector-specific courses and webinars which are world-renowned and have been offered since 1992.
We are fully conversant with all system safety standards and guidelines (both domestic and international; (e.g. MIL-STD-882E, SAE ARP4761 (soon to be 4761A requiring a Safety Program Plan, Preliminary Aircraft Safety Assessment (PASA), and Aircraft Safety Assessment (ASA)), IEC 61508, DEF STAN 00-56, MIL-HDBK-516C)
