The Engineering Practice Specialty (EPS) is the premier resource for technical knowledge and expertise related to engineering issues. Our members have made significant contributions to protect those who work at heights and to prevent slips, trips and falls in the workplace, leading to the development of ASSE’s Z359 Fall Protection Code and Slips & Trips Compendium, respectively and has played a major role in the development of examination questions used by the State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers. The Engineering Practice Specialty provides a forum for members to discuss strategies and research that address the needs of practicing engineers.

Control Systems Controversy: ISO 13849-1
Machinery controls have evolved from simple hardware circuits to ever more complex hardware and software systems….The term “control reliability” has been used in the U.S. for several years, but its meaning is unclear. As a result, there is ample opportunity for interpretation in the definition as it relates to a specific control system.
