The job of the system safety engineer is to identify the design constraints necessary to maintain safety and to ensure the system and software design enforces them. . !  # +     *  *  )     c � An Overview of The Approach Engineers should recognize that reducing risk is not an impossible task, even under financial and time constraints. All it takes in many cases is a different perspective on the design problem.
