The Safety Cube Method is an integrated approach to achieve safety by design. It describes the process to identify, assess and evaluate functional, technical and operational hazards, and their associated risks. The technical system, humans and the environment are the three fundamental elements of safety. These elements and their mutual interfaces form the core of the method.
The Safety Cube Method (SCM) and its application to achieve safety by design is introduced and described in a Nederlands Technical Agreement (NTA). It can be ordered here.
