Home, safe home
In homes, safety rests to a large extent on a number of electronic systems, such as smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, or sensors to detect a range of potential hazards including floods, extreme temperatures, gas, etc. For its part the security of occupants depends on many devices and products like electronic locks, access controls and intercoms, sensors, video cameras, burglar and fire alarms.
Have a good flight
Security in the air transport industry is of primary concern for airlines, airport operators, governments and, obviously, passengers. IEC International Standards are central to the myriad of electrical and electronic security systems deployed to scan passengers, baggage and cargo, as well as airport staff to ensure the security of individuals and critical assets.
Protecting industrial assets
In industrial environments, functional safety plays a central role in the protection of assets, as an assessment of the causes of the February 2015 gas leak incident on the North Sea Gudrun platform shows.
Finally many IEC International Standards play a critical role in systems used to protect the health of individuals by helping prevent the contamination of food products and ensuring safety and proper sanitary conditions in leisure installations, such as swimming pools or sports halls.
