A system, device, or circuit is said to be fail-safe if it does not continue to operate in an unsafe state upon failure.

The fail-safe attribute is a design feature that ensures that data is neither deleted nor lost when a unit, module, or network fails. The failure of a fail-safe unit does not affect the operation of other units, nor does it pose a hazard to personnel.
