ECAST Guidance on Hazards Identification

Home Documents ECAST Guidance on Hazards Identification

Developed by ECAST, this document presents guidance on hazard identification to support Risk Assessment and Management in a (Safety) Management System.

‘Safety risk assessment is one of the functions in a Safety Management System and an important element of safety risk assessment is the identification of hazards.

A hazard can be considered as a dormant potential for harm which is present in one form or another within the aviation system or its environment. This potential for harm may be in the form of a natural hazard such as terrain, or a technical hazard such as wrong runway markings.

This document develops the concept of ‘the hazard’ within a safety risk management framework which also defines risk,safety events, undesirable events, outcomes, consequences and risk controls (barriers or mitigations). ‘
