  Safety engineering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Safety engineering assure that a life-critical system behaves as needed even when pieces fail.
Safety engineers distinguish different extents of defective operation: A "fault" is said to occur when some piece of equipment does not operate as designed.
Safety engineers also identify different modes of safe operation: A "probabilistically safe" system has no single point of failure, and enough redundant sensors, computers and effectors so that it is very unlikely to cause harm (usually "very unlikely" means, on average, less than one human life lost in a billion hours of operation).

 Safety - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Safety is the condition of being protected against physical, social, spiritual, financial, political, emotional, occupational, psychological or other types or consequences of failure, damage, error, accidents, harm or any other event.
Safety is often in relation to some guarantee of a standard of insurance to the quality and unharmful function of a thing or organization.
Safety is generally interpreted as implying a real and significant impact on risk of death, injury or damage to property.

 Welcome To Highway Safety – Introduction
The goal in 1966 was to return safety decisions to those that base their decisions only on findings of fact that have proven to make us safer; with uniform nationwide continuity of meaning and expectation.
In this Act, Congress entrusted this responsibility solely to licensed traffic engineering professionals and their institutions, because the tenets of their profession require studies to test a thesis, peer review and verification before a standard, practice, procedure or principle can be incorporated into their engineering body of working knowledge.
Traffic engineering studies are the cornerstone of basis–in–fact finding as to what traffic control devices or safety mitigation may be warranted.
