Abstract:

The Air Force System Safety Handbook was prepared as a resource document for program office SYSTEM SAFETY MANAGERS AND SYSTEM SAFETY ENGINEERS. It is not designed to answer every question on the topic of system safety nor is it a cookbook that guarantees success. The handbook provides considerable insight to the general principles, objectives, and requirements of applying system safety concepts to the Air Force system acquisition and logistical support processes. Programs vary greatly in their scope and complexity, requiring a tailored system safety effort. Assigned to this difficult task are military and government personnel with varied education and experience backgrounds. These system safety practitioners need a comprehensive understanding of the system safety process and the complexities of applying it to a given program. This handbook will assist in providing much of the necessary information but additional, more detailed guidance will be required from the program office and their higher headquarters system safety experts. This handbook is published by AFSC. Lt Col James E. LaMarca formerly from HQ AFSASESD developed and edited this handbook, first published in Sep 91.
