Safety by Design

The human, the technical system, and the environment are the three elements for safety or three axes for the safety coordinate system. They have three mutual interactions. These form the six fundamental aspects for safety assessment system, represented by the Safety Cube. The Safety Cube is a theory, a method, and a game-changer for engineering safer products and systems.



The book ‘Safety by Design’ intends to implement safety into design. It provides a reference for designers who want to achieve safety and security in their everyday practice, safety engineers who wish to seek a closer relationship with other engineers or developers, and managers who need to find a balance between safety and other performances of the system. The book describes the theory for safe integration and offers a methodology for the complete safety assessment across the full life cycle and different hierarchical levels.
