H-ON a TÜV Rheinland Company
Mission & Vision
Our vision is to ensure the continued professional growth and well-being of people.
We are a TÜV Rheinland Company. H-ON comes from the acronym for Helmet ON. This saying fully represents our vision, as safety in the industrial environment deserves the highest priority.
Operators, the people, need to work in a safe environment, just as companies are in dire need of preventing risks to provide continuity of production and to protect human life.
The compliance of industrial products with safety and cyber security standards is what drives large manufacturers and users; and we are dedicated to supporting them in realizing their projects.
Safety and Cyber Security of production assets and protection of operators are key to the evolution of business for large manufacturers and end-users.
Safety is not just a legal requirement, it is a way of life, a culture that we want to help spread within organizations. It is an essential human value which can only be ensured through the prevention of safety, reliability and cyber security risks and the use of compliant industrial products.

Our history began in Prato from the shared idea of four founders and a team of technicians with solid operational experience in Oil & Gas. The range of specialized services has since expanded with consulting solutions for product compliance according to the main national and international legal standards, which are applicable to every sector, including steel, paper and energy.
Specificity and Operation
Year after year, we tried to make our way in a market that already had the presence of large companies and certification bodies with our clear and concrete consulting style.
We were convinced that our consultancy could really be different: specific, operational and active in disseminating knowledge in order to constantly meet industry changes.
From CE, EAC, UL, CSA, SIL certification to Hazop and FMEDA analysis, we have always tried to meet the needs of the entire industrial supply chain.
Innovation and Knowledge
2014 was another turning point. The attention of some customers located in Scotland was focused on Industrial Cyber Security, and ours was focused on the IEC 62443 standard. From our R&D we understood that this was a different topic from IT cyber security, which had been known for a long time.
Our affinity to such a cutting-edge issue proved to be immediate, as well as crucial.
Digitization was going to increasingly take up more space, and with it came new risks related to the proper operation of networked equipment. This was undoubtedly going to affect the safety of manufacturing companies, who were potential targets for hackers.
We understood that there is no safety without security: we could no longer talk about product safety without considering its IT component. Therefore, we developed services aimed at manufacturers and users for even more comprehensive protection of their infrastructure.
Who we are today
Today we are a TÜV Rheinland Company operating in more than 10 sectors, with consulting and certification projects developing steadily over the years. We collaborate with manufacturers and end users belonging to large corporations and established entities on the national and international scene. We share the same philosophy of doing business with our customers: always maintaining belief in the value of safety, the development of skills and the evolution of business.
Our independent internal division BYHON is an ANSI and ISASecure® accredited certification body to issue IEC 61508 and IEC 62443 certifications.
Our organization consists of more than 40 technical specialists, in addition to sales, administrative and human resources personnel, all of whom share a set of values and skills that enable the entire group to achieve goals in a cohesive and structured manner.
Our company invests in corporate welfare and research and development to always ensure the highest professional well-being of our people and the highest quality for our customers.
Our solutions extend to the entire industrial supply chain, spanning 5 service lines: from component compliance to the certification of entire production lines.
