Engaging with third parties such as equipment or system suppliers to gather supporting safety case evidence
Production and maintenance of Safety Case documentation (plans, policies and reports) to support project milestones
Conducting Risk Management in accordance with Def Stan 00-56
Your skills and qualifications as a Product Safety Engineer:
Demonstrable experience in safety engineering/ product safety, and activities contributing to the production of safety cases
Knowledge/ experience in systems engineering, including requirements, design, and integration
