A safety case is a set of structured documents that includes a description of the system to be certified. It contains the information about the processes used to develop the system and logical arguments that demonstrate that the system is safe or that a required level of security is achieved. Therefore for many critical systems the safety case is a legal requirement. Software failures can result in failures of equipment or other processes which may lead to injury or death. Safety cases may vary depending on the type of the system.

The systems that may require safety cases are:

• Banking system

• Nuclear power system

• Health care system

• Air-traffic control systems
