For computer based safety-critical systems, it is most efficient to consider safety concerns as early as possible during software development in order to ensure that safety problems do not propagate through subsequent phases of development. In this paper, we present an approach for the safety analysis of software specifications that are produced during the requirements analysis. The safety analysis is conducted concurrently with the requirements analysis, and its aim is to assess whether the risk associated with a requirements specification is acceptable.
