The System Safety Engineer develops ands utilizes any SMA specific tools needed to assure that all applicable system safety requirements (e.g., Agency, Center, Program/Project, etc.) are identified for MSFC programs and projects. These should include, but not be limited to fault tree analysis, logic trees, risk definition and mitigation analyses, hazard analysis and trending/data search.
Assess program or project documentation (e.g., Contractor PWS, Data Requirements Documents, System Requirements Document, Contract End Item (CEI), Requirements Verification Compliance (RVC), procedures) to assure that all applicable safety requirements are addressed.
Perform and assess trade studies relative to design, development, operation, or mission events to assure compliance with safety requirements and to assure safety risks are adequately identified, characterized, and mitigated. These tasks shall be performed for in-house and out-of-house design and development projects.
Prepare and/or assess Safety Plans to assure compliance with applicable Agency, Center and Program safety requirements. Assess Project Plans to assure that safety is properly considered. These tasks shall be performed for in-house and out-of-house design and development projects.
Perform and/or assess hazard analyses to assure that: (a) all hazards are identified and the associated risks properly characterized; (b) hazard controls satisfy applicable safety requirements and adequately mitigate safety risks; (c) safety verification requirements are clearly identified and adequate, including the clear definition of verification pass/fail criteria; and (d) the safety verification status is properly maintained in a closed loop accounting system. These tasks shall be performed for in-house and out-of-house design and development projects.
Assess test and operating procedures to assure compliance with safety controls and safety verification requirements.
Efforts include: engineering analysis of systems to identify and eliminate safety hazards, integrated hazards analysis, the systematic application of safety policies to the design of NASA human-rated hardware, and assistance in the overall implementation of safety practices for systems/subsystems;
Experience performing analyses in accordance with NASA-STD-8719.13B, and NASA-STD-8715.3;
Experience in performing complex Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) and Hazard Assessments (HAs) is highly desirable;.
