IEC 61508: Are tools that are used certified/compliant to certain safety standards?

Ideally, all tools used in safety-critical product development would be certified against the safety standard, therefore the methods used to evaluate and mitigate akin hazards promote the use of diverse standards governing device creation, subsequently, it brings safety management to system management and, in respect of the development of safety-related systems, it brings safety engineering to software engineering.
