Many software-intensive systems have significant safety ramifications and need to have their associated safety-related requirements properly engineered. However, there is little effective interaction and collaboration between the requirements and safety teams on most projects. This paper is intended to improve such collaboration by providing clear definitions of the different kinds of safety-related requirements, examples of such requirements, and a generic process for producing them.
