How you will make a difference

The role is specifically to perform safety engineering analysis of software and complex hardware elements with the focus on certification of COTS PE based systems to IEC 61508, Def Stan 00-55 or similar. The primary activities will involve conducting analysis to determine the required safety integrity level for the control and safety functions within the system and to work with the engineering teams to ensure that suitable and sufficient evidence of compliance can be generated to support the certification safety argument.

The role will also require the safety engineer to be aware of the latest legislation and regulations impacting the projects they work on and to be able to analyse the relevant standards and regulations for areas that must be complied with.

Role Responsibilities: Be responsible to the Project Safety Manager, who leads the technical safety work and is responsible for generating the safety case. Undertake software safety analysis activities as directed by the project safety manager. Generate software safety requirements for the system to ensure that the customers safety targets and derived safety targets can be met by the system design (e.g. random hardware failure probabilities or systematic safety integrity level (SIL) targets for software and/or firmware. Support the planning of software safety activities on a complex project, including effort estimating to deliver the project milestones and safety case objectives. Generating and implementing certification plans for software and complex hardware elements to meet the safety integrity level requirements Supporting audits at internal and external design reviews and safety committee meetings Generating software safety analysis and documenting it in a report, which will be the subject of internal peer review, governance reviews and presenting the findings to the customer.

It would be great if you had: Certified TÜV Functional Safety Professional Experience in achieving certification for SIL2 systems or equivalent Experience in safety assurance of COTS PE based systems or high integrity software Safety requirements capture and negotiation Experience of IEC 61511 SCADA and PLC/D Development Experience of WIN CC OA or similar Knowledge of formal Validation and Verification processes UK Defence experience on maritime projects
