Introduction

 
Safety analysis and engineering seeks to reduce risk by anticipating points of failure, and proposing changes that eliminate or mitigate the consequences of such failures. Safety analysts identify and evaluate safety risk areas; and develop options to mitigate or reduce the consequences of those risks.  Safety engineers also analyze system designs to find what faults can occur, and then propose changes to make the system more redundant, resulting in a safe architecture. Together, safety analysts and engineers establish safety requirements, set safety criteria, mitigate non-safe areas, design safety architectures, and adopt safety processes to ensure that a system will be developed according to the safety architecture.
