  • Safety Case Guideline (Third Edition)

    Nadine Cranenburgh


    A safety case is a document which identifies the hazards and risks associated with a facility, how they are controlled and the safety management system in place to ensure controls are applied.


    The Safety Case Guideline (Third Edition) has been produced by the Risk Engineering Society (RES) to clarify the safety case concept and how it applies to engineers' due diligence under the provisions of the model Work Health and Safety (WHS) Act 2011.

    This guideline considers how a safety case argument can be used as a tool to positively demonstrate safety due diligence consistent with the model WHS legislation.

    It also provides general information concerning the concepts and applications of risk theory to safety case arguments, as well as practical guidance for engineers on preparing and presenting a safety case argument.


    This guideline is available from the Engineers Australia bookshop.
