- The world of safety analysis is filled with ambiguous words: codes and standards; consequences and risks; hazard and accident, and health and safety. These words have been subject to disparate interpretations by Safety Analysis Report (SAR) writers, readers and users. ``Principal health and safety criteria`` has been one of the most frequently misused terms; rarely is it used consistently or effectively. This paper offers an easily understood definition for ``principal health and safety criteria,`` and uses systems engineering to convert an otherwise mysterious topic into the primary means of producing an integrated SAR. This paper is based upon SARs being written for Environmental Restoration & Waste Management activities for the Department of Energy (DOE). Requirements for these SARs are prescribed in DOE Order 5480.23, ``Nuclear Safety Analysis Reports``.
