NOTICE 1 DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE WASHINGTON, DC 20301 System Safety Program Requirements MIL-STD-882B 1. This Military Standard is approved for use by all Departments and Agencies of the Department of Defense. 2. Beneficial comments (recommendations, additions, deletions) and any pertinent data which may be of use in improving this document should be addressed to: HQ Air Force Systems Command (PLEQ ComSO), Andrews AFB, Washington, DC 20334-5000, by using the self-addressed Standardization Document Improvement Proposal (DD Form 1426) appearing at the end of this document or by letter.
The principal objective of a system safety program within the Department of Defense (Diet) is to make sure safety, consistent with mission requirements, is designed into systems, subsystems, equipment, and facilities, and their interfaces. Diet has approved this military standard for all Diet departments and agencies to use in developing system safety programs. The degree of safety achieved in a system depends directly on management emphasis. Government and contractors will apply management emphasis to safety during the system acquisition process and throughout the life cycle of each system, making sure mishap risk is understood and risk reduction is always considered in the management review process. The success of the system safety effort depends on definitive statements of safety objectives and requirements by the managing activity and their translation into functional hardware and software. A formal safety program that stresses early hazard identification and elimination or reduction of associated risk to a level acceptable to the managing activity is the principal contribution of effective system safety. Selective application and the tailoring of this military standard must be accomplished, as indicated herein, to specify the extent of contractual and Diet in-house compliance.

SYSTEM SAFETY REQUIREMENTS. 4.1 System Safety Program. The contractor shall establish and maintain a system safety program to support efficient and effective achievement of overall objectives. 4.2 System Safety Program Objectives. The system safety program shall define a systematic approach to make sure: a. Safety, consistent with mission requirements is designed into the system in a timely, cost-effective manner. b. Hazards associated with each system are identified, evaluated, and eliminated, or the associated risk reduced to a level acceptable to the MA throughout the entire life cycle of a system. Risk shall be described in risk assessment terms (see paragraph 4.5 below). c. Historical safety data, including lessons learned from other systems, are considered and used. d. Minimum risk is sought in accepting and using new designs, materials, and production and test techniques. e. Actions taken to eliminate hazards or reduce risk to a level acceptable to the MA are documented. f. Retrofit actions required to improve safety are minimized through the timely inclusion of safety features during research and development and acquisition of a system. g. Changes in design, configuration, or mission requirements are accomplished in a manner that maintains a risk level acceptable to the MA. h. Consideration is given to safety, ease of disposal, and demilitarization of any hazardous materials associated with the system. i. Significant safety data are documented as "lessons learned" and are submitted to data banks or as proposed changes to applicable design handbooks and specifications. 4.3 System Safety Design Requirements. System safety design requirements will be specified after review of pertinent standards, specifications, regulations, design handbooks and other sources of design guidance for applicability to the design of the system. Some general system safety design requirements are: a. Eliminate identified hazards or reduce associated risk through design, including material selection or substitution. When potentially hazardous materials must be used, select those with least risk throughout the life cycle of the system. b. Isolate hazardous substances, components, and operations from other activities, areas, personnel, and incompatible materials. c. Locate equipment so that access during operations, servicing, maintenance, repair, or adjustment minimizes personnel exposure to hazards (e.g., hazardous chemicals, high voltage, electromagnetic radiation, cutting edges, or sharp points). d. Minimize risk resulting from excessive environmental conditions (e.g., temperature, pressure, noise, toxicity, acceleration and vibration). e. Design to minimize risk created by human error in the operation and support of the system. f. Consider alternate approaches to minimize risk from hazards that cannot be eliminated. Such approaches include interlocks, redundancy, failsafe design, system protection, fire suppression, and protective clothing, equipment, devices, and procedures. g. Protect the power sources, controls and critical components of redundant subsystems by physical separation or shielding. h. When alternate design approaches cannot eliminate the hazard, provide warning and caution notes in assembly, operations, maintenance, and repair instructions, and distinctive markings on hazardous components and materials, equipment, and facilities to ensure personnel and equipment protection. These shall be standardized in accordance with MA requirements. i. Minimize the severity of personnel injury or damage to equipment in the event of a mishap. j. Design software controlled or monitored functions to minimize initiation of hazardous events or mishaps. k. Review design criteria for inadequate or overly restrictive requirements regarding safety. Recommend new design criteria supported by study, analyses, or test data. 4.4 System Safety Precedence. The order of precedence for satisfying system safety requirements and resolving identified hazards shall be as follows: a. Design for Minimum Risk. From the first, design to eliminate hazards. If an identified hazard cannot be eliminated, reduce the associated risk to an acceptable level, as defined by the MA, through design selection. b. Incorporate Safety Devices. If identified hazards cannot be eliminate or their associated risk adequately reduced through design selection, that risk shall be reduced to a level acceptable to the MA through the use of fixed, automatic, or other protective safety design features or devices. Provisions shall be made for periodic functional checks of safety devices when applicable. c. Provide Warning Devices. When neither design nor safety devices can effectively eliminate identified hazards or adequately reduce associated risk, devices shall be used to detect the condition and to produce an adequate warning signal to alert personnel of the hazard. Warning signals and their application shall be designed to minimize the probability of incorrect personnel reaction to the signals and shall be standardized within like types of systems. d. Develop Procedures and Training. Where it is impractical to eliminate hazards through design selection or adequately reduce the associated risk with safety and warning devices, procedures and training shall be used. However, without a specific waiver, no warning, caution, or other form of written advisory shall be used as the only risk reduction method for Category I or II hazards (as defined in paragraph 4.5.1 below). Procedures may include the use of personal protective equipment. Precautionary notations shall be standardized as specified by the MA. Tasks and activities judged critical by the MA may require certification of personnel proficiency. 4.5 Risk Assessment. Decisions regarding resolution of identified hazards shall be based on assessment of the risk involved. To aid the achievement of the objectives of system safety, hazards shall be characterized as to hazard severity categories and hazard probability levels, when possible. Since the priority for system safety is eliminating hazards by design, a risk assessment procedure considering only hazard severity will generally suffice during the early design phase to minimize risk. When hazards are not eliminated during the early design phase, a risk assessment procedure based upon the hazard probability, as well as hazard severity, shall be used to establish priorities for corrective action and resolution of identified hazards. 4.5.1 Hazard Severity. Hazard severity categories are defined to provide a qualitative measure of the worst credible mishap resulting from personnel error; environmental conditions; design inadequacies; procedural deficiencies; or system, subsystem or component failure or malfunction as follows: Hazard Severity Description Category Mishap Definition CATASTROPHIC I Death or system loss. CRITICAL II Severe injury, severe occupational illness, or major system damage. MARGINAL III Minor injury, minor occupational illness, or minor system damage. NEGLIGIBLE IV Less than minor injury, occupational illness, or system damage. There hazard severity categories provide guidance to a wide variety of programs. However, adaptation to a particular program is generally required to provide a mutual understanding between the MA and the contractors as to the meaning of the terms used in the category definitions. The adaptation must define what constitutes system loss, major or minor system damage, and severe and minor injury and occupational illness. 4.5.2 Hazard Probability. The probability that a hazard will be created during the planned life expectancy of the system can be described in potential occurrences per unit of time, events, population, items, or activity. Assigning a quantitative hazard probability to a potential design or procedural hazard is generally not possible early in the design process. A qualitative hazard probability may be derived from research, analysis, and evaluation of historical safety data from similar systems. Supporting rationale for assigning a hazard probability shall be documented in hazard analysis reports. An example of a qualitative hazard probability ranking is: Hazard Probability Description(*) Level Specific Individual Item Fleet or Inventory** FREQUENT A Likely to occur frequently Continuously experienced PROBABLE B Will occur several times in Will occur frequently life of an item OCCASIONAL C Likely to occur sometime Will occur several times in life of an item REMOTE D Unlikely but possible to Unlikely but can reasonably occur in life of an item be expected to occur IMPROBABLE E So unlikely, it can be Unlikely to occur, but assumed occurrence may not possible be experienced (*)Definitions of descriptive words may have to be modified based on quantity involved. (**)The size of the fleet or inventory should be defined. 4.6 Action on Identified Hazards. Action shall be taken to eliminate identified hazards or reduce the associated risk. CATASTROPHIC and CRITICAL hazards shall be eliminated or their associated risk reduced to a level acceptable to the MA. If this is impossible or impractical, alternatives shall be recommended to the MA. 5. TASK DESCRIPTIONS.

A hazard risk index of ID, 2C, 2D, 3B, or 3C would be tracked for possible corrective action. A hazard risk index of 1E, 2E, 3D, or 3E might have a lower priority for corrective action and may not warrant any tracking actions. In the second matrix, risk indices of 1 through 20 (1 being highest risk) are assigned somewhat arbitrarily. This matrix design assigns a different index to each frequency-category pair thus avoiding the situation caused by creating indices as products of numbers assigned to frequency and category which causes common results such as 2 X 6 - 3 X 4 - 4 X 3. This situation hides information pertinent to prioritization. These are only examples of a risk assessment methods and do not fit all programs. 307.4 Action on Identified Hazards (Reference paragraph 4.6). The contractor is required to follow the system safety precedence to resolve CATASTROPHIC and CRITICAL hazards, and guard against MARGINAL hazards. 40. TASK SELECTION 40.1 Selection Criteria 40.1.1 A major challenge which confronts all Government and industry organizations responsible for a system safety program is the selection of tasks which can materially aid in attaining program safety requirements. Schedule and funding constraints mandate a cost-effective selection, one that is based on identified program needs. The considerations presented herein are intended to provide guidance and rationale for this selection. They are also intended to jog the memory for lessons learned to provoke questions which must be answered and to encourage dialogue with other engineers, and operations and support personnel so that answers to questions and solutions to problems can be found. 40.1.2 Once appropriate tasks have been selected, the tasks themselves must be tailored and specified as outlined in the "Details To Be Specified By the MA." It is also important to coordinate task requirements with other engineering support groups, such as logistics support, reliability, etc., to eliminate duplication of tasks and to be aware of any additional information of value to system safety which these other groups can provide. Finally, the timing and depth required for each task, as well as action to be taken based on task outcome, are largely dependent on individual experience and program requirements. For these reasons, hard and fast rules are not stated. 40.2 Application Matrix for Program Phases. Tables I and II herein provide general guidance on task selection to establish an acceptable and cost effective system safety program. These tables can be used to initially identify those tasks which typically are included in an effective system safety program for the particular acquisition phase involved. The user of the document can then refer to the particular task referenced by the matrix and determine from the detailed purpose at the beginning of the task if it is appropriate to identify as a program task. The use of this matrix for developing a system safety program is to be considered as optional guidance only and is not to be construed as covering all procurement situations. The provisions of applicable regulations must also be followed. TABLE 1. APPLICATION MATRIX FOR SYSTEM PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT TABLE 2. APPLICATION MATRIX FOR FACILITIES ACQUISITION 40.3 Task Prioritization. The problem of prioritizing or establishing a baseline group from all the tasks in this document cannot be solved unless variables like system complexity, program phase, availability of funds, schedule, etc., are known. Task 100, System Safety Program, is required, and tailoring should be based on total program cost and complexity. All other tasks require Task 100 as a prerequisite. 40.3.1 Identifying and Quantifying System Safety Needs. The elements of a system safety program must be selected to meet the safety needs. These needs are identified by higher authority through directives and other documents. Identifying and quantifying these needs must be accomplished prior to the appropriate acquisition phase so that tasks and requirements commensurate with the needs may be included. The tasks and requirements which are included establish the framework for the continuing system safety dialogue between the MA and the proposing contractors, one or more of whom will ultimately be selected to develop the system. 40.3.2 Selecting Tasks to Fit the Needs. In most cases, the need for the tasks is self-evident. While experience plays a key role in task selection, it should be supplemented by analysis and investigation. Once recommendations for task applications have been determined and more detailed equipment requirements identified, tasks and requirements can be prioritized and a "rough order of magnitude" estimate should be made of the time and effort required to complete each task. This information will be of considerable value in selecting the tasks which can be accomplished within schedule and funding constraints. 50. RATIONALE AND GUIDANCE FOR TASK SELECTIONS. 50.1 Task Section 100 - Program Management and Control. 50.1.1 System Safety Program (Task 100). This task is required if MIL-STD-882B is to be imposed. Task 100 requires the contractor to set up and conduct a system safety program to meet the requirements of Section 4. Because of the general nature of Section 4, careful tailoring of the requirements contained therein is necessary for each program, particularly for relatively small efforts. 50.1.2 System Safety Program Plan (Task 101). 18.104.22.168 The system safety program plan is a basic tool used by the MA to assist in managing an effective system safety program. It can be used to evaluate the various contractors' approaches to, understanding of, and execution of their system safety tasks, their depth of planning to make sure their procedures for implementing and controlling system safety tasks are adequate, and their organizational structure to make sure appropriate attention will be focused on system safety activities. 22.214.171.124 An SSPP is normally prepared by the contractor and when approved by the MA, becomes the basis of understanding between the contractor and the MA as to how the system safety program is to be conducted. The SSPP identifies all safety program activities specified by the MA and shows how the safety program will provide input or preclude duplication of effort. The plan provides specific information to show how the contractor will meet quantitative and/or qualitative safety requirements during development, production, and construction phases. When prepared in response to a request for proposal, the SSPP serves as a thorough cross-index to the safety management and engineering proposals contained in the contractor's response. This plan must clearly reflect the safety features of the response. On small programs, or large programs with several associate contractors where the MA is the integrator, or where the MA has a firm idea of the type and magnitude of the system safety effort required, the MA may prepare the SSPP and attach it to the SOW. This often will save funds since the MA would not need to buy the plan from the contractor, and also informs the contractor just what is expected. Not only does this allow contractors to price the effort in their bids, it eliminates the possibility of entering into rounds of submittal/disapproval/resubmittal by contractors inexperienced in system safety. However, if the contractor does not prepare an SSPP, other than in the proposal itself, the MA obtains no immediate information as to whether the contractor understands the system safety requirements. 126.96.36.199 The format and instructions for preparing an SSPP are specified in Task 101 and DoD Authorized Data Item DI-SAFT-80100, System Safety Program Plan. This data item must be tailored for each program by requiring certain paragraphs to be listed on the contract data requirements list, DD Form 1423. Preliminary SSPPs are often required to be submitted with the contractor's proposal. This allows for the proposed system safety effort to be considered during source selection. Additionally, if the scope of the effort is too large or small, or misdirected, it provides time to get the contractor to correct the error prior to contract initiation. 50.1.3 Integration/Management of Associate Contractors, Subcontractors and Architect and Engineering Firms (Task 102). Major programs or construction projects will often have multiple associate contractors, integrating contractors, and AE firms under contract. An integrating contractor or a facilities acquisition contractor will often have the responsibility to oversee system safety efforts of associate contractors or AE firms. Task 102 provides the authority for management surveillance needed by the integrating or facilities acquisition contractor by assigning the various system safety roles of associate contractors, subcontractors, integrators, and construction firms. The integrator should be tasked to write an ISSPP according to the requirements outlined in Task 101. The integrator and construction contractor should be tasked to perform system hazard analyses and assessments to cover the interfaces between the various contractors' portions of the system or construction effort. All contractors and AE firms should be made aware of the integrator's or facilities acquisition contractor's role of overall system safety management. The integrator needs to resolve differences between associates in safety-related areas. The MA will aid the integrator in these efforts to make sure all contractors and firms mutually understand the system safety requirements, and their respective responsibilities to comply with them. 50.1.4 System Safety Program Reviews (Task 103). 188.8.131.52 In addition to the system safety reviews required by other DoD or service regulations and MIL-STDs (at milestone design reviews and audits), the MA may require special safety reviews. Early in a major program, system safety reviews should be held at least quarterly and as the program progresses, time between reviews can be extended. In addition to more detailed coverage of those items discussed at milestone design reviews, the reviews should address progress on all system safety tasks specified in the SOW. 184.108.40.206 Special system safety reviews may be needed to fulfill requirements of munitions safety boards, first flight readiness reviews, and other safety certification authorities. These reviews should be specified in the SOW as part of Task 103. 220.127.116.11 All program reviews provide an opportunity to review and assign action items and to explore other areas of concern. A mutually acceptable agenda should be written to make sure all system safety open items are covered and that all participants are prepared for meaningful discussions. 50.1.5 System Safety Group/System Safety Working Group Support (Task 104). Individual service regulations require formation of SSG/SSWGs for acquisition of expensive, complex or critical systems, equipment or major facilities. Contractor support of an SSG/SSWG is very useful and may be necessary to make sure procured hardware or software is acceptably free from hazards that could injure personnel or cause unnecessary damage or loss. The level of support desired from the contractor must be detailed in the contract through imposition of Task 104. 50.1.6 Hazard Tracking and Risk Resolution (Task 105). A method or procedure must be developed to document and track hazards and progress made toward resolution of the associated risk. Each prime or associate contractor may maintain their own hazard log or assessment report, or the integrator or MA will maintain the document. If the contractor is to maintain the log, Task 105 must be imposed. Each hazard that meets or exceeds the threshold specified by the MA should be entered on the log when first identified, and each action taken to eliminate the hazard or reduce the associated risk thoroughly documented. The MA will detail the procedure for closing-out the hazard, or acceptance of any residual risk. The hazard log may be documented and delivered as part of the system safety progress summary using DI-SAFT-80105, System Safety Engineering Report, or it can be included as part of an overall program engineering/management report. 50.1.7 Test and Evaluation Safety (Task 106). This task provides needed contractor management activities to make sure all test safety requirements are met prior to and during testing. Early planning for test and evaluation must be done to consider testing milestones that will require certain hazard analyses, range or laboratory requirements that may require specially formatted assessments, review of test documents, etc. 50.1.8 System Safety Progress Summary (Task 107). The system safety progress summary provides a periodic written report of the status of system safety engineering and management activities. This status report may be submitted monthly or quarterly. It can be formatted and delivered according to DI-SAFT-80105, System Safety Engineering Report, or it can be included as part of an overall program engineering/management report. 50.1.9 Qualifications of Key Contractor System Safety Engineers/Managers (Task 108). Some programs will require that the key system safety engineers and managers possess special qualifications. Some or all qualifications listed in Task 108 may be required, or the MA may specify other minimum qualifications. Care must be exercised in applying Task 108 to assure some opportunity for growth and qualification of neophyte system safety personnel who possess little experience. 50.2 Task Section 200 - Design and Evaluation. 50.2.1 Preliminary Hazard List (Task 201). The PHL provides to the MA a list of hazards that may require special safety design emphasis or hazardous areas where in-depth analyses need to be done. The MA may use the results of the PHL to determine the scope of follow-on hazard analyses (PHA, SSHA, etc.). The PHL may be documented using DI-SAFT-80101, System Safety Hazard Analysis Report. 50.2.2 Preliminary Hazard Analysis (Task 202). 18.104.22.168 PHA is, as implied by the title, the initial effort in hazard analysis during the system design phase or the programming and requirements development phase for facilities acquisition. It may also be used on an operational system for the initial examination of the state of safety. The purpose of the PHA is not to affect control of all risks but to fully recognize the hazardous states with all of the accompanying system implications. 22.214.171.124 The PHA effort should be commenced during the initial phases of system concept, or in the case of a fully operational system, at the initiation of a safety evaluation. This will help in the use of PHA results in tradeoff studies which are so important in the early phases of system development or, in the case of an operational system, aid in an early determination of the state of safety. The output of the PHA may be used in developing system safety requirements and in preparing performance and design specifications. In addition, the PHA is the basic hazard analysis which establishes the framework for other hazard analyses which may be performed. 126.96.36.199 The PHA should include, but not be limited to, the following activities: (a) A review of pertinent historical safety experience. (b) A categorized listing of basic energy sources. (c) An investigation of the various energy sources to determine the provisions which have been developed for their control. (d) Identification of the safety requirements and other regulations pertaining to personnel safety, environmental hazards, and toxic substances with which the system will have to comply. (e) Recommend corrective actions. 188.8.131.52 Since the PHA should be initiated very early in the planning phase, the data available to the analyst may be incomplete and informal. Therefore, structure the analysis to permit continual revision and updating as the conceptual approach is modified and refined. As soon as the subsystem design details are complete enough to allow the analyst to begin the subsystem hazard analysis in detail, terminate the PHA. Provide the analyst performing the PHA with the following reference input information: (a) Design sketches, drawings, and data describing the system and subsystem elements for the various conceptual approaches under consideration. (b) Functional flow diagrams and related data describing the proposed sequence of activities, functions, and operations, involving the system elements during the contemplated life span. (c) Background information related to safety requirements associated with the contemplated testing, manufacturing, storage, repair, and use locations and safety related experiences of similar previous programs or activities. 184.108.40.206 The techniques used to perform this analysis must be carefully selected to minimize problems in performing follow-on analyses. The PHA may be documented as outlined in DI-SAFT-80101, System Safety Hazard Analysis Report. There are several formats that can be used. Some of these are: 220.127.116.11.1 Narrative format. The narrative format is relatively unstructured and as a result there are many different formats available. The format primarily depends on the analyst and the type of information required from the analysis. 18.104.22.168.2 Matrix format. The matrix format is the most commonly used approach for performing and documenting a PHA. There are numerous varieties of PHA matrix formats in use, most of which are fairly similar. 22.214.171.124.3 Other formats. The format used should be tailored to reflect the nature of the system to be analyzed, the extent of information about the system, and the planned use of the analysis output data. Either format is acceptable and the analyst must determine which can do the job most effectively. The use of system safety design checklists, such as Air Force Systems Command Design Handbook 1-X, in the performance of a PHA can be a very effective method. 50.2.3 Subsystem Hazard Analysis (Task 203). 126.96.36.199 This task would be performed if a system under development contained subsystems or components that when integrated functioned together as a system. This analysis looks at each subsystem or component and identifies hazards associated with operating of failure modes and is especially intended to determine how operation or failure of components affects the overall safety of the system. This analysis should identify necessary actions, using the system safety precedence to determine how to eliminate or reduce the risk of identified hazards. 188.8.131.52 As soon as subsystems are designed in sufficient detail, or well into concept design for facilities acquisition, the SSHA can begin. It should be updated as the design matures. Design changes to components will also need to be evaluated to determine whether the safety of the system is affected. The techniques used for this analysis must be carefully selected to minimize problems in integrating subsystem hazard analyses into the system hazard analysis. The SSHA may be documented as outlined in DI-SAFT-80101, System Safety Hazard Analysis Report. 50.2.4 System Hazard Analysis (Task 204). 184.108.40.206 An SHA is accomplished in much the same way as the subsystem hazard analysis. However, as the SSHA examines how component operation or failure affects the system, the SHA determines how system operation and failure modes can affect the safety of the system and its subsystems. The SHA should begin as the system design matures, around the preliminary design review or the facilities concept design review milestone, and should be updated until the design is complete. Design changes will need to be evaluated to determine their effects on the safety of the system and its subsystems. This analysis should contain recommended actions, applying the system safety precedence, to eliminate or reduce the risk of identified hazards. 220.127.116.11 Specifically, the SHA examines all subsystem interfaces for: (a) Compliance with safety criteria called out in the applicable system/subsystem requirements documents. (b) Possible combinations of independent or dependent failures that can cause hazards to the system or personnel. Failures of controls and safety devices should be considered. (c) How normal operations of systems and subsystems can degrade the safety of the system. (d) Design changes to system, subsystems, or interfaces, logic, and software that can create new hazards to equipment and personnel. The techniques used to perform this analysis must be carefully selected to minimize problems in integrating the SHA with other hazard analyses. The SHA may be documented as outlined in DI-SAFT-80101, System Safety Hazard Analysis Report. 50.2.5 Operating and Support Hazard Analysis (O&SHA) (Task 205). 18.104.22.168 The O&SHA is performed primarily to identify and evaluate the hazards associated with the environment, personnel, procedures, and equipment involved throughout the operation of a system/element. The O&SHA may be performed on such activities as testing, installation, modification, maintenance, support, transportation, ground servicing, storage, operations, emergency escape, egress, rescue, post-accident responses, and training. The O&SHA may also be selectively applied to facilities acquisition projects to make sure operation and maintenance manuals properly address safety and health requirements. 22.214.171.124 The O∧SHA effort should start early enough to provide inputs to the design and prior to system test and operation. The O&SHA is most effective as a continuing closed- loop iterative process, whereby proposed changes, additions, and formulation of functional activities are evaluated for safety considerations, prior to formal acceptance. The analyst performing the O&SHA should have available: (a) Engineering descriptions of the proposed system, support equipment and facilities. (b) Draft procedures and preliminary operating manuals. (c) PHA, SSHA, and SHA reports. (d) Related requirements, constraint requirements, and personnel capabilities. (e) Human factors engineering data and reports. (f) Lessons learned, including a history of mishaps caused by human error. 126.96.36.199 Timely application of the O&SHA will provide design guidance. The findings and recommendations resulting from the O&SHA may affect the diverse functional responsibilities associated with a given program. Therefore, exercise care in assuring that the analysis results are properly distributed for the effected accomplishment of the O&SHA objectives. The techniques used to perform this analysis must be carefully selected to minimize problems in integrating O&SHAs with other hazard analyses. The O&SHA may be documented using DI-SAFT-80101, System Safety Hazard Analysis Report. 50.2.6 Occupational Health Hazard Assessment (Task 206). 188.8.131.52 The first step of the occupational health hazard assessment is to identify and determine quantities of potentially hazardous materials or physical agents (noise, radiation, heat stress, cold stress) involved with the system and its logistical support. The next step would be to analyze how these materials or physical agents are used in the system and for its logistical support. Based on the use, quantity, and type of substance/agent, estimate where and how personnel exposures may occur and if possible the degree or frequency of exposure involved. The final step would include incorporation into the design of the system and its logistical support equipment/facilities cost effective controls to reduce exposures to acceptable levels. The life cycle costs of required controls could be high and consideration of alternative systems may be appropriate. 184.108.40.206 The purpose of this analysis is not to dictate designs based on health protection, but to assure decision makers are aware of the health hazards involved and their impacts so that knowledgeable decisions regarding potential tradeoffs can be made. 220.127.116.11 The following factors associated with the system and the logistical support required to operate and maintain the system should be considered: (a) Toxicity, quantity, and physical state of materials. (b) Routine or planned uses and releases of hazardous materials or physical agents. (c) Accidental exposure potentials. (d) Hazardous waste generated. (e) Hazardous material handling, transfer, and transportation requirements. (f) Protective clothing/equipment needs. (g) Detection and measurement devices required to quantify exposure levels. (h) Number of personnel potentially at risk. (i) Engineering controls that could be used, such as isolation, enclosure, ventilation, noise or radiation barriers, etc. 18.104.22.168 To define the acceptable level of risk for health hazards the MA should require use of chemical substance and physical agent exposure limits found in appropriate regulations and directive documents, or contact a qualified individual in the bioenvironmental engineering or medical community. For hazardous substances or agents with unspecified exposure limits the contractor must provide the rationale for acceptable risk criteria used for the OHHA. The OHHA may be documented using DI-SAFT-80106, Occupational Health Hazard Assessment Report. 50.2.7 Safety Verification (Task 207). 22.214.171.124 Many safety requirements, as specified in system specifications, requirements documents, etc., will need to be verified by analysis, inspection, demonstration, or test. Also, during design and development, hazard analyses will identify hazards that will be removed through redesign, controls, safety devices, etc. Imposition of these changes will require verification. Task 207 outlines how safety verification should be performed. 126.96.36.199 Much safety verification will be outlined in system/ subsystem test plans and procedures. However, for verification of risk control actions taken on hazards identified during development, special test plans/procedures will be needed. Safety tests may be documented and reported using DI-SAFT-80102, Safety Assessment Report, or they may be included in the system/ subsystem test reports. 50.2.8 Training (Task 208). 188.8.131.52 Many programs will require certification training of personnel involved with development, test, and operations of the system. A good system safety program can only be carried out if all the players involved understand how to do their part. Contractor design engineers need to understand basic system safety principles to design hazard-free systems. A good training program will include training design engineers as a top priority. Managers need to be educated about the importance of good initial safety designs vs. costly redesign and retrofits. Contractor and Government test personnel need to be trained in safe handling, operation, and testing of equipment. Operational and maintenance personnel need safety training in their functions. 184.108.40.206 Training can be accomplished in difference ways. Formal classroom training sessions using a thorough lesson plan containing all the necessary handouts is one of the most effective and efficient methods. Imposing examinations and final certification helps assure the trainees have understood and will hopefully apply the material presented. 220.127.116.11 The contractor's safety training program should be detailed in the SSPP (Task 101). 50.2.9 Safety Assessment (Task 209). The safety assessment, as outlined in the task, can be written by following DI-SAFT-80102, Safety Assessment Report. The importance of this report is that it tells the user or the test team of all the residual unsafe design of operating characteristics of the system. It also attempts to quantify the risk of any hazards not eliminated, and identifies any controls, inhibits, or safety procedures. 50.2.10 Safety Compliance Assessment (Task 210). 18.104.22.168 A safety compliance assessment is conducted to verify the safe design of a system and to obtain a comprehensive evaluation of the safety risk being assumed prior to test or operation of a system. It can be documented by following DI-SAFT-80102, Safety Assessment Report. It is an operationally oriented analysis, concerned with the safe use of a system, equipment, or facility. A safety compliance assessment is, therefore, broad in scope, covering almost every aspect of the system, but relatively general in nature, delving into detail only to the extent necessary to verify the system's safety or ascertain the risks and precautions necessary for its safe use. A safety compliance assessment may be the only analysis conducted on a program or it may serve as a pre-test or pre- operational safety review, integrating and summarizing operational safety considerations identified in more detailed hazard analyses. 22.214.171.124 A safety compliance assessment may be the only analysis conducted on a relatively low safety risk program. The low risk can result from several different factors. The system may be an integration of primarily off-the-shelf equipments involving little or no new design. It may be a system which is low risk by nature of its technology or complexity. Compliance with federal, military, national, and industry specifications, standards, and codes may be sufficient to make sure of the basic safety of the system. A safety compliance assessment may also be conducted on higher safety risk systems, such as research or advanced development projects, where the higher risks must be accepted, but for which safe operation is still required and the risks must be recognized and reduced to acceptable levels. 126.96.36.199 This assessment may be conducted during any phase of system development. It should be started as soon as sufficient information becomes available. For example, evaluation of equipment should begin with the design of equipment components or with the receipt of equipment specifications from a subcontractor or vendor. The analysis can also be tailored in the SOW to meet the particular needs of a program. 188.8.131.52 A safety compliance assessment should include, but not be limited to, the following: (a) Identification of appropriate safety standards and verification of system compliance. Standards may be specified by the procuring agency in a specification or other contractual document. This does not preclude the contractor from identifying additional standards which are appropriate. The contractor should also review available historical safety data from similar systems. Verification may be achieved by several methods, including analysis, use of checklists, inspection, test, independent evaluation, or manufacturer's certification. (b) Analysis and resolution of system hazards. Systems, even those comprised entirely of equipments in full compliance with appropriate standards, may contain hazards resulting from unique uses, interfaces, installation, etc. Another facet of this assessment is to identify, evaluate, and eliminate any such "residual" hazards or reduce their associated risks to acceptable levels. To accomplish this, the assessment should incorporate the scope and techniques of other hazard analyses to the detail necessary to assure a reasonably safe system. (c) Identification of specialized safety requirements. The above analysis should lead to safety design features and other necessary precautions. The contractor should identify all safety precautions necessary to safely operate and support the system. This includes applicable precautions external to the system or outside the contractor's responsibility. For example, hazard risk may have to be controlled by specialized safety equipment and training because the contract does not allow for redesign or modification of off-the-shelf equipments, or the contractor may not be responsible for providing necessary emergency lighting, fire protection, or personal safety equipment. (d) Identification of hazardous materials and the precautions and procedures necessary for the safe handling of the material. 50.2.11 Safety Review of Engineering Change Proposals and Requests for Deviation/Waiver (Task 211). This task may be documented using DI-SAFT-80103, Engineering Change Proposal System Safety Report, and DI-SAFT-80104, Waiver or Deviation System Safety Report. ECPs to the existing design and requests for deviation/waiver from existing requirements must be assessed for any possible safety impacts to the system. Often, correction of a deficiency will introduce other overlooked deficiencies. This task is designed to prevent that occurrence by requiring contractor system safety engineers to examine each ECP or request for deviation/waiver, and investigate all conceivable ways the change or deviation could result in an additional hazard(s). The task specifies that the MA be notified if the ECP or request for deviation/waiver decreases the existing level of safety. 50.2.12 RESERVED. For Software Hazard Analysis see 50.3. 50.2.13 GFE/GFP System Safety Analysis (Task 213). 184.108.40.206 This task should be imposed only if the system under development will contain GFE or GFP that interfaces directly with contractor developed hardware or software. 220.127.116.11 This task permits the contractor to integrate the GFE/GFP items into the system design with full knowledge of the associated hazards and risk controls by requiring acquisition of existing analysis documentation. If no such documentation is available, the contractor must perform the necessary analysis to assure a safe interface. This analysis may be documented and delivered by appropriately tailoring and applying DI-SAFT-80101, System Safety Hazard Analysis Report. 50.3.0 Software System Safety. The purpose of Software System Safety is to: (a) Develop safety requirements for the system and the software within the system. (b) Ensure accurate translation of safety specification requirements into System/Segment Specification (SSS) and Software Requirements Specification (SRS) requirements, and accurate translation of the SSS and SRS safety requirements into the design and code of the software. (c) Ensure that the SSS and SRSs clearly identify the safety criteria to be used (fail-safe, fail-fire, fail- soft, fail-operational, fail-recovery, etc.) (d) Identify programs, Computer Software Components (CSCs), routines, modules, or functions and their interfaces which control or influence safety critical hardware functions. These shall be designated Safety Critical Computer Software Components (SCCSC). (e) Analyze those Safety Critical Computer Software Components and their system interfaces as designed or implemented for events, faults, and environments which could cause or contribute to undesired events affecting safety. (f) Analyze the implementation of safety design requirements to ensure that it accomplishes the intent of the requirement. The analysis should verify that there are no single point or likely multiple failures that could compromise the safety feature. Implementation of safety requirements should not introduce new hazards or adversely affect other safety requirements. (g) Ensure that the actual coded software does not cause identified or unidentified hazardous functions to occur or inhibit desired functions, thus creating hazardous conditions. (h) Effectively mitigate end item hardware hazardous anomalies. (i) Ensure that safety design requirements are thoroughly tested including fault testing. The relationships between the various system, hardware, and software safety analyses of MIL-STD-882B; the various reviews and audits of MIL-STD-1521B; and the software documentation required by DOD-STD-2167 are given in Table 3. 18.104.22.168 Some of the current analysis techniques and methodologies that are available to conduct this analysis are: (a) Software fault tree analysis (b) Software sneak analysis (c) Design walk-throughs (d) Code walk-throughs (e) Petri net analysis (f) Software/Hardware integrated critical path analysis. (g) Nuclear safety cross-check analysis (h) Cross reference listing analysis Due to the various strengths and weaknesses of each technique, a thorough software hazard analysis will require application of more than one of these techniques on a particular software element. Additionally, the application of good software engineering practices is vital to designing software that is safe and analyzable. 22.214.171.124 Software System Safety must begin early in the concept phase and must be structured to permit continual revision and updating as the design matures. To ensure an effective analysis effort, the following information is needed: (a) System/Segment Specifications (SSSs), Software Requirements Specifications (SRSs), Interface Requirements Specifications (IRSs), and other allocation documents which describe the system, all of the various software-software, software-hardware, and software-operator interfaces, and both normal and abnormal environments which the system could encounter. (b) Functional flow diagrams, timing diagrams, and related data describing the proposed sequence and timing of activities, functions, and operations involving the system elements throughout the life cycle of the system. (c) Computer program functional flow charts, or their functional equivalents, The Program Design Language (PDL) for the program, storage and timing allocation charts, and other program structure documents as they become available, or when they change. (d) Background information related to safety requirements associated with the planned testing, manufacturing, shipping, handling, storage, repair, anticipated operational and support environments, as well as lessons learned from similar programs or activities. (e) Known hazardous event sources, including energy and toxic sources, especially those which may be controlled by software. (f) The Software Development Plan, Software Quality Evaluation Plan, Software Configuration Management Plan, and other system and subsystem development planning documents. (g) The System Test Plan, Software Test Plan, and other test documentation. 50.3.1 Software Requirements Hazard Analysis (SRHA - Task 301). The SRHA effort begins while the system requirements allocation is being made. The SRHA first establishes a software safety requirements tracking system within the configuration management system. The SRHA also performs a thorough review and analysis of software requirements aimed at identifying existing requirements (as well as requirements generated from the PHL and system PHA) and assuring an accurate flow down of those requirements into the Software Requirements Specification. Additionally, the analysis produces required and recommended actions to eliminate identified hazards, or reduce their associated risk to an acceptable level, and to make preliminary testing requirements. This effort generally includes the following: (a) Review of the System/Segment Specification, Subsystem Specifications, Software Requirements Specifications, Interface Requirements Specification, and other system concept and requirements documents to assure that: (1) safety requirements have been allocated to the software system; (2) hazards from the PHL and system PHA have been identified; and (3) traceability of safety requirements exist from the system specification to the detail software requirements specifications. (b) Analysis of functional flow diagrams (or their functional equivalent), PDL, data flow diagrams, storage and timing allocation charts, and other program documentation to assure that specification and safety requirements will be met. The results of the SRHA are presented at, and are a part of, the System Requirements Review (SRR), the System Design Review (SDR), and the Software Specification Review. 50.3.2 Top-level Design Hazard Analysis (THDA - Task 302). The THDA begins after the Software Specifications Review, and it expands upon the SRHA. This analysis includes: (a) Relating those hazards identified in the PHL, PHA, and SRHA to specific CSC items, and identifying those CSCIs which control or affect the hazards as Safety-Critical Computer Software Components (SCCSCs). (b) Examining the software to determine the independence/ dependence and interdependence among Computer Software Components (CSCs), modules, tables, variables, etc. Elements of software which directly or indirectly influence SCCSCs will be identified as also being SCCSCs, which should be analyzed for their undesired effects. (c) Analyzing the top-level design of the SCCSCs for compliance with the safety requirements, and passing the results to the software designers and program manager. The results of the TDA are presented at, and are a part of, the Preliminary Design Review (PDR). 50.3.3 Detailed Design Hazard Analysis (DDHA - Task 303). The DDHA begins after the PDR, and it expands upon and is a follow- on to the Top-Level Software Hazard Analysis. This analysis includes the following: (a) Relating those hazards identified in the PHA, SRHA, and TDHA to specific low level CSC components, and identifying those components which control of affect the hazards as SCCSCs, which must be analyzed for correctness and undesired effects. (b) Examining the software to determine the independence/ dependence and interdependence among low level components, modules, tables, variables, etc. Elements of software which directly or indirectly influence SCCSCs will also be identified as being SCCSCs, which must be analyzed for correctness and undesired effects. (c) Analyzing the detailed design of the SCCSCs for compliance with the safety requirements, and passing the results to the Software designers and program manager. (d) Developing requirements for inclusion in test plans, descriptions, and procedures. (e) Developing requirements for inclusion in the Computer System Operator's Manual, Software User's Manual, Computer System Diagnostic Manual, and Firmware Support Manual, and other manuals as appropriate. (f) Ensure that the code developers know which are the SCCSCs. Also, provide the code developers with safety- related coding recommendations and requirements. The results of the DDHA, and all other previously conducted safety analyses, are presented at, and are a part of, the Critical Design Review (CDR). 50.3.4 Code-level Software Hazard Analysis (CSHA - Task 304). This analysis examines the actual source and object code of SCCSCs and other CSCs to verify the actual design implementation. This effort must start when coding commences, and be updated until testing is complete. This analysis identifies actions required to eliminate identified hazards or reduce their associated risk to an acceptable level. The analyst shall participate in code reviews and walk-throughs and should participate in peer reviews of code. Specifically, this analysis examines: (a) SCCSCs (algorithms, components, modules, routines, and calculations) for correctness and for input/output, timing, multiple event, wrong event, out-of-sequence, adverse environment, deadlocking, inappropriate magnitude, and other types of sensitivities. (b) Programs, components, routines, modules, or functions for design or coding errors which could cause or contribute to an undesired event affecting safety. (c) SCCSCs for compliance with safety criteria called out in applicable SSSs or SRSs. Safety critical portions of software must be examined at the source and object code level as well as at the top level and detailed design levels. (d) SCCSCs for implementation of safety design requirements to ensure that the intent of the requirement is met. The analyst shall determine that single point or likely multiple failures on inputs from external hardware or other modules cannot result in compromise of the safety features. Tests should be designed to test the safety features including fault mode and no-go path testing. (e) Possible combinations of independent, dependent, or interdependent hardware or software failures, unintended program jumps, single or multiple events, or out-of-order events that could cause the system to operate in a hazardous manner. (f) Single or multiple combinations of out-of-bounds or overloading input conditions. Additionally, this task requires a review of the software documentation being developed to ensure that the safety features and requirements of the software are included. The results of the CSHA are presented, and are a part of, the Test Readiness Review (TRR). However, results of the CSHA for lower level units must be given to the programmers while the codes is being developed. 50.3.5 Software Safety Testing (Task 305). Testing of the lower level units of the software begins almost immediately after coding of the unit has been completed. System level testing of the software begins after a successful TRR. Testing, and support of testing, by the contractor's safety personnel includes the following: (a) Ensuring that the identified safety hazards have been eliminated or reduced to an acceptable level of risk by submitting SCCSCs to appropriate safety testing. (b) Providing appropriate test procedures, cases, and inputs to test personnel to test the SCCSCs for safe and proper operation. (c) Ensuring that all of the SCCSCs are tested in accordance with the approved test procedures, and that the test results are accurately recorded. (d) Testing the software under abnormal environmental and input conditions, as well as normal conditions, and ensuring that it performs properly and safely under these conditions. (e) Subjecting the software to stress testing and acceptance testing to ensure that it performs properly and safely under stress conditions. (f) Ensuring that commercially-developed, commercially- available, proprietary, and other software that was not specifically developed under this contract but that will be included in the system performs properly and safely. This applies whether the software is used as-is or is modified by the contractor. (g) Ensuring that any Government Furnished Software, whether modified or not, that will be used in the system performs properly and safely. (h) Ensuring that safety hazards, and other deficiencies and discrepancies, that are discovered during system integration and system acceptance testing will be corrected and retested to be sure that they are no longer a problem. 50.3.6 Software/User Interface Analysis (Task 306). The user/ operator interface to a program must be developed to ensure that the system will be operated in a safe manner. Further, even after all of the safety analyses and design changes are done, there still may be safety hazards in the system which cannot be eliminated or controlled strictly in the design. Procedures must be developed that will do the following: (a) Provide for the detection of the onset of a hazardous or potentially hazardous condition in order to prevent the hazard from occurring. (b) Control the hazard so that it occurs only in specific instances and on specific command from the operator. (c) Provide a warning to the operator, user, and other personnel indicating that a potentially hazardous situation is about to occur or is occurring. (d) Ensure that the system will survive if hazard occurs. (e) Provide damage control and recovery procedures should a hazard occur, or if prevention and control procedures fail. (f) Provide survival and recovery procedures from critical hazard conditions. (g) Provide the capability to safely abort or cancel an event, process, or program if required. (h) Provide a warning to the operator to alert him of system or software malfunctions or failures, and ensure that the operator is made of all such failures existing at one time. This may change the manner in which failures are cleared or overridden. (i) Ensure that the display of hazard data is unambiguous and provides the operator all necessary data to make safety critical decisions. 50.3.7 Software Change Hazard Analysis (Task 307). Change Analysis is the examining and analyzing of changes, modifications, and patches to specifications, requirements, equipment, software, design, and source and object code for safety impact. If a change has not been analyzed, the system cannot be assumed to be safe. This analysis includes the following: (a) Analyzing design changes and modifications, and code changes and patches to the system, subsystem, interfaces, logic, procedures, and software for safety impact ensuring that the change does not create new hazards, does not affect a hazard that has previously been resolved, does not make a currently-existing hazard more severe than it currently is, and does not adversely affect any related or interfacing design or code. (b) Testing the changes to ensure that the new software does not contain safety hazards, whether these hazards are previously known or not. (c) Ensuring that the change is properly and correctly incorporated into the code. (d) Reviewing and updating the documentation to reflect these changes. (e) Incorporating the methods and procedures for performing this task in the Software Configuration Management Plan. 50.3.8 Documentation.
