Safety

View this topic in
Safety is the state of being "safe", the condition of being protected against physical, social, spiritual, financial, political, emotional, occupational, psychological, educational or other types or consequences of failure, damage, error, accidents, harm or any other event which could be considered non-desirable. Safety can also be defined to be the control of recognized hazards to achieve an acceptable level of risk. (Wikipedia.org)

Review on civil aviation safety investment research

2016 11th International Conference on Reliability, Maintainability and Safety (ICRMS), 2016

Maintaining and improving safety has always been the most important thing for civil aviation. Safety investment is an important material guarantee and basis for civil aviation safety. Insufficient investment in safety and irrational structure of safety investment are the causes of accidents in civil aviation. A review of recent research articles related to safety investment was presented and the research ...


A structured approach to selecting and justifying software safety evidence

5th IET International Conference on System Safety 2010, 2010

The safety assurance of software is ultimately demonstrated by the evidence that is put forward. There is a range of existing guidance on the types of evidence that may be used to demonstrate the safety of software, however questions remain as to the sufficiency of the evidence suggested by such guidance. We propose that the only way to determine the ...

  • One approach to functional safety assurance and safety lifecycle compliance

    This paper will explore and highlight the challenge for the Asset Owner/Operators and how they delegate their responsibilities for functional safety management into the supply chain. The paper will explore how the key elements of functional safety management (with a focus on instrumented safety systems) can be brought together to augment confidence and ultimately increase assurance that the developed basis of safe operation is valid and appropriate. It will also present a reasoned argument that supply chain stakeholders that can provide safety assured products and services to Asset Owners/Operators gain a competitive advantage over those who do not have this assured capability.

  • Improving workplace Electrical Safety through Self-Assessment

    An effective electrical safety program is the key to reducing electrical injuries in the workplace. The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) has developed a new workplace safety awareness program to assist safety professionals and facility managers with the development or improvement of electrical safety programs. Encouraging a proactive approach to electrical safety, the How Do You Know? program features high-quality video modules that reinforce the importance of electrical safety programs and compliance with standards and regulations, while also demonstrating the personal impact workplace electrical incidents can have on an organization and its employees. The How Do You Know? program also includes an online assessment tool that promotes self-evaluation as a method for improving workplace electrical safety. The ESFI Electrical Safety Self-Assessment guides users though a series of questions that help them review and analyze electrical safety practices related to facilities, personnel and procedures. Once the assessment is complete, users are provided with a summary of areas that have been identified for further examination or improvement.

  • Review on civil aviation safety investment research

    Maintaining and improving safety has always been the most important thing for civil aviation. Safety investment is an important material guarantee and basis for civil aviation safety. Insufficient investment in safety and irrational structure of safety investment are the causes of accidents in civil aviation. A review of recent research articles related to safety investment was presented and the research status, achievements, existing problems and development prospects were introduced. The construction method of safety investment index system, the cost-benefit analysis of safety investment, and the safety investment decision-making methods were summarized. A framework was proposed to establish a safety investment index system, conduct of cost- benefit analysis, and to assist in the quantitative decision-making of civil aviation safety investment.

  • A structured approach to selecting and justifying software safety evidence

    The safety assurance of software is ultimately demonstrated by the evidence that is put forward. There is a range of existing guidance on the types of evidence that may be used to demonstrate the safety of software, however questions remain as to the sufficiency of the evidence suggested by such guidance. We propose that the only way to determine the sufficiency of the evidence is to consider its capability to address specific explicit safety assurance claims in a software safety argument. In this paper we propose a lightweight approach to selecting and assessing software safety evidence.

  • Research on Yangtze River waterway transportation safety evaluation model based on fuzzy logic theory

    Waterway transportation accidents may cause great economic losses, casualties and environmental pollution. Traditional comprehensive index method is used to conduct safety assessment with fixed values, and can't reflect the randomness and uncertainty of risk. This paper analyzes several typical factors influencing the Yangtze River waterway transportation safety to identify four indexes for waterway transportation safety evaluation, and then the waterway transportation safety evaluation model is established through the method of fuzzy logic to analyze the Yangtze River waterway transportation accident data from 2002 to 2011. With the accurate evaluation results, this model is reliable. This study can be used to improve the management of Maritime Safety Administration.

  • Electrical safety audit findings Do's & Don'ts

    Often overlooked in a company's Electrical Safety Program is the need to audit the Electrical Safety Program and the implemented preventive and protective control measures to mitigate or reduce the risk of exposure to workers to the electrical hazards of arc flash and shock to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP). Findings from Electrical Safety Audits provide evidence and measurable results to electrical safety performance, which is critical for continuous improvement. [1][2][3][4][6][9][10][11][12][13][14].

  • Application of Work Flow Process in an Electrical Safety Program

    It's all about the work task! Is it a reactive or planned electrical work task or job? Has a Work Order been issued? Is the work energized or not and if the assigned work task is energized what does the Qualified Electrical Worker (QEW) have to do to execute it as outlined in an employer's overall Occupational Health & Safety Management System (OHSMS) and associated Electrical Safety Program (ESP). The requirements of the CSA Z462 and NFPA 70E Standards must be addressed in the execution of the work task. Documentation must be used before, during and after the work task has been executed. This set of documents forms the “Work Package” for the assigned work task. The process of executing the energized electrical work task has a natural flow of required steps and when all steps are completed provides the best due diligence for employer and employee and ensures the requirements of the employer's Electrical Safety Program are met. Does your company's Electrical Safety Program provide a focus on the work task and what is required to be done to execute the work task?
