A practical guide to identifying hazards using common hazard analysis techniques

Many different hazard analysis techniques have been developed over the past forty years. However, there is only a handful of techniques that safety analysts actually apply in their daily work. Written by a former president of the System Safety Society and winner of the Boeing Achievement and Apollo Awards for his safety analysis work, Hazard Analysis Techniques for System Safety explains, in detail, how to perform the most commonly used hazard analysis techniques employed by the system safety engineering discipline.

Focusing on the twenty-two most commonly used hazard analysis methodologies in the system safety discipline, author Clifton Ericson outlines the three components that comprise a hazard and describes how to use these components to recognize a hazard during analysis. He then examines each technique in sufficient detail and with numerous illustrations and examples, to enable the reader to easily understand and perform the analysis.

Techniques covered include:
* Preliminary Hazard List (PHL) Analysis
* Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA)
* Subsystem Hazard Analysis (SSHA)
* System Hazard Analysis (SHA)
* Operating and Support Hazard Analysis (O&SHA)
* Health Hazard Assessment (HHA)
* Safety Requirements/Criteria Analysis (SRCA)
* Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
* Event Tree Analysis (ETA)
* Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
* Fault Hazard Analysis
* Functional Hazard Analysis
* Sneak Circuit Analysis (SCA)
* Petri Net Analysis (PNA)
* Markov Analysis (MA)
* Barrier Analysis (BA)
* Bent Pin Analysis (BPA)
* HAZOP Analysis
* Cause Consequence Analysis (CCA)
* Common Cause Failure Analysis (CCFA)
* MORT Analysis
* Software Safety Assessment (SWSA)

Written to be accessible to readers with a minimal amount of technical background, Hazard Analysis Techniques for System Safety gathers, for the first time in one source, the techniques that safety analysts actually apply in daily practice. Both new and seasoned analysts will find this book an invaluable resource for designing and constructing safe systems-- in short, for saving lives.

The Air Force System Safety Handbook was prepared as a resource document for program office system safety managers and system safety engineers. It is not designed to answer every question on the topic of system safety nor is it a cookbook that guarantees success. The handbook provides considerable insight to the general principles, objectives, and requirements of applying system safety concepts to the Air Force system acquisition and logistical support processes. Programs vary greatly in their scope and complexity, requiring a tailored system safety effort. Assigned to this difficult task are military and government personnel with varied education and experience backgrounds. These system safety practitioners need a comprehensive understanding of the system safety process and the complexities of applying it to a given program. This handbook will assist in providing much of the necessary information but additional, more detailed guidance will be required from the program office and their higher headquarters system safety experts. The ultimate objective of any organization within the Air Force is maximizing combat capability. One element in this maximizing process is protecting and conserving combat weapon systems and their support equipment. Preventing mishaps and reducing system losses is one important aspect of conserving these resources. System safety contributes to mishap prevention by minimizing system risks due to hazards consistent with other cost, schedule, and design requirements. The fundamental objective of system safety is to identify, eliminate or control, and document system hazards. 1.0 Introduction To System Safety * 2.0 System Safety Policy And Process * 3.0 Risk Assessment * 4.0 System Safety Program * 5.0 System Safety Program Plan (Sspp) * 6.0 Other Management Tasks (Ref 30) * 7.0 Design And Integration Tasks * 8.0 Design Evaluation, Compliance, And Verification * 9.0 Analysis Techniques * 10.0 System Safety Life-Cycle Activities * 11.0 Program Office System Safety * 12.0 Contracting For System Safety * 13.0 Evaluating Contractor System Safety * 14.0 Facilities System Safety * 15.0 Supplementary Requirements * 16.0 Nuclear Safety * 17.0 Explosives Safety * 18.0 System Safety In Logistics * 20.0 Test And Evaluation Safety

Today’s risk analysis is a very challenging field, and a solid understanding of the calculations procedure associated with it is essential for anyone involved. Fires, Explosions, and Toxic Gas Dispersions: Effects Calculation and Risk Analysis provides an overview of the methods used to assess the risk of fires, explosions, and toxic gas dispersion, and then deduce the subsequent effects and consequences of these events.
The authors cover various aspects of such incidents, including the probability that an accident will occur, and how to calculate leaks, heat flux, overpressure, and the concentration of toxic clouds. The book follows by describing the consequences to people (injury or death) and material damages, and it concludes with a discussion of possible causes of destruction and common circumstances that can result in accidents.

Some key features of this book include:

  • Introduction of basic techniques of hazard identification, emphasizing "what if" and HAZOP analyses
  • Step-by-step procedures for the calculation of fires (i.e., pool fire, jet fire, fire ball), explosions (VCE, BLEVE), and concentration of toxic clouds (light and heavy gases)
  • Methods for determining probability of injuries or lethality

Invaluable to professionals, researchers, and students whose work involves predicting the consequences of accidents, this book describes simple modern methods, which are a great aid for understanding the meaning of all the variables involved―in contrast to current complicated computer packages, which produce only results. Filling the existing gap in useful literature on risk analysis, this book follows a logical structure and presents straightforward, step-by-step calculation procedures and numerous examples that will be valuable in both teaching and learning the content.
