Job Description

What is the impact on the product of a failure in a safety significant item? What is the likelihood a given failure will occur? Given the environments, if it fails what are the failure modes and outcomes of the failure? How can we effectively design in safety to preclude hazards from occurring, or to mitigate the effects of the hazard? How will we effectively characterize and communicate mishap risk to the customer? These are the questions System Safety engineers answer everyday. Engineering interns work under the direction of senior System Safety engineers and their engineering leadership on System Safety engineering tasks and hazard analyses, as members of the System Safety Engineering Department. So what does a System Safety Engineer do?
