SYSTEM SAFETY ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES AS APPLIED TO SHIPBOARD SYSTEMS
System safety is defined as the integration of skills and resources specifically organized to achieve accident prevention over the life cycle of a given system. Although born in the aerospace field, system safety has been receiving increasing application in other areas and is now being used within the marine industry. This paper discusses the current Navy emphasis on system safety considerations during the design phases of shipboard systems. System safety requirements are reviewed, their use by the marine industry examined, and objectives of system safety analyses as related to marine systems are discussed. This is followed by a description of the various types of safety analyses that may be applied to shipboard systems. The preliminary hazard, fault tree, and fault hazard analysis techniques are discussed in depth, and examples of their development are presented. Lastly, the key elements of the SSN688 Class Submarine System Safety Program are described.
