Abstract

This publication discusses aspects of the development of an impact assessment method (IAM) for safety. Compared to the many existing IAM’s for environmentally oriented LCA, this method should translate the impact of a product life cycle on the subject of safety. Moreover, the method should be applicable within Simapro. Besides the usual subjects, like the definition of effects and interventions, specific solutions had to be found for classification. Besides a dedicated impact assessment method for safety, also new data cards have to be developed to describe the necessary product characteristics to account for geometric and kinematic dependencies.
