Definitions always differ among the users of terms. But if the Agile methods being considered do not start with a complete and thorough specification of all the system/software safety requirements before anything else, then the system resulting system/software design will almost surely be less safe than one that does. Whether it coincides with other standards (most of which are very deficient with respect to safety) is not really important, is it?
