Safety Analysis

Who Needs this Service

Safety analysis is, arguably, most important in cyber-physical systems including those in transportation, energy, and medical devices. Broader definitions of safety would lead to the inclusion of any system whose compromise would lead to harm.

What are the Goals of this Service

The goals of our safety analysis are to illuminate the hazards posed by the system in question and to propose costed mitigations to help our clients understand their risk appetite and modify their safety controls to ensure that the residual risks fit within it.

What is this Service

Our approach to safety analysis combines several techniques including component fault analysis, process fault analysis and event chain analysis. We triangulate these approaches to ensure thorough analysis. We then classify hazards using a risk matrix and prioritize our recommendations including, acceptance, mitigation, transfer, and avoidance.
