This document outlines a standard practice for conducting system safety. In some cases, these principles may be captured in other standards that apply to specific commodities such as commercial aircraft and automobiles. For example, those manufacturers that produce commercial aircraft should use SAE ARP4754 or SAE ARP4761 (see Section 2 below) to meet FAA or other regulatory agency system safety-related requirements.
The system safety practice as defined herein provides a consistent means of evaluating identified risks. Mishap risk should be identified, evaluated, and mitigated to a level as low as reasonably practicable. The mishap risk should be accepted by the appropriate authority and comply with federal (and state, where applicable) laws and regulations, executive orders, treaties, and agreements. Program trade studies associated with mitigating mishap risk should consider total life cycle cost in any decision.
This document is intended for use as one of the elements of project solicitation for complex systems requiring a systematic evaluation of hazards and mitigating measures. The Managing Authority may identify, in the solicitation and system specification, specific system safety requirements to be met by the Developer. These may include risk assessment and acceptance criteria, unique classifications and certifications, or mishap reduction needs unique to their program. Additional information in meeting program specific requirements is located in the Appendixes.
The primary purpose of this revision of standard GEIA-STD-0010, of the same name, is to provide Task Data Descriptions (TDDs) for System Safety Tasks detailed in Appendix B of this Standard. TDDs are analogous to Data Item Descriptions (DIDs) found in military standards. The TDDs now appear in a new appendix (Appendix C). This revision also incorporates numerous editorial corrections to the previous version of the standard.

The G-48 Committee develops technical and program criteria, procedures, and methodology for the application of system safety engineering at all phases of the life cycle of a system or equipment. It documents and disseminates standard analytical techniques for enhancing system safety and conducting industry surveys for the purpose of improving techniques for testing, collecting, and distributing historical operational system safety data.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
