Towards the One Page Safety Case: Less paper and more assurance

August 2009 | Wim Coenraad

It should be possible to produce a “one page safety case” (well perhaps 10 pages max.) and assess it in two weeks. All it takes is to be clever about it and manage the safety assurance processes well. In essence, any project, any supplier that applies the systems- and safety assurance processes that are now the norm in our industry and adequately documents the efforts they are making anyway, should not need more than ten pages and two weeks to explain all that and convince their Independent Safety Assessor (ISA).
