RELIABILITY AND SAFETY, TWO FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS WHEN DESIGNING SAFETY INSTALLATIONS

FIABILITE ET SECURITE, DEUX NOTIONS FONDAMENTALES DANS LA CONCEPTION DES INSTALLATIONS DE SECURITE

To distinguish clearly between the concepts of reliability and safety, the author bases himself on the operating principles for railway safety installations. Using various examples, he shows the difficulties encountered when producing safety installations and states ways likely to give the highest possible degree of safety (controlled element circuits, intrinsical safety circuits). He stresses the difficulties and risks there would be if we tried to express these safety levels in quantitative terms as for reliability.
