This paper continues to describe the midterm outcomes of EU research project Benchmark Exercise on Safety Engineering Practices. To further support the planning, controlling and conducting of a fully integrated safety engineering effort, the authors propose a Safety Engineering Management Plan (SaEMP), which is a document that addresses the overall safety engineering management approach. This is another step towards more efficient and integrated safety engineering process in the scope BESEP project following the possibilities offered by systems engineering (SE). As an example of the topics covered by the Safety Engineering Management Plan, this paper further focuses on the flow of information between different safety analysis disciplines, namely probabilistic safety analysis and human factors engineering.

Keywords: Safety engineering management plan, Nuclear safety, Human factors engineering, Probabilistic safety analysis.
