Abstract : In March 2007, the Technical Committee on System Safety (TCSS) under the IEEE System Council held its first international workshop on issues relating to safety of systems of national and global significance. The workshop provided an open working forum to contribute to the goal of obtaining a holistic view of system safety for a better understanding of the system safety discipline. Much of the discussion that took place during the workshop revolved around what are the relationships between safety and the other areas of dependability, such as security and reliability, and how to leverage these relationships to build trustworthy systems. This report contains the position papers along with presentation material delivered by the participants of the workshop, along with a summary of the participants' input from the discussion portion of the workshop.
