SAFESA (SAFE S tructural A nalysis) is a project that was undertaken by 5 UK companies with the support of the Department of Trade and Industry. The basis of the SAFESA approach is to formalise the structural qualification process such that the opportunity for error is minimised. The approach involves identification, quantification and treatment of errors, which are identified by their sources and progressively reduced to acceptable levels by suitable treatment.
