This paper demonstrates how Problem Oriented Software Engineering (POSE) can be used to improve the requirements phase of a safety development process by allowing safety risk to be assessed early in the development. Also, POSE provides support for tracing the justifications for design decisions. Allowing these justifications to be easily assimilated and checked by a safety and/or certification function.
