Abstract

Safety hazards and risks shall be identified and managed to ensure that they are diminished, deferred or accepted within the existing regulations, criteria and standards. The aim of this paper is to propose a Quantified Risk Assessment methodology and cost-effective safety system practices for aircraft operators, manufacturers and design organisations through the development of Risk Acceptance Criteria inAir Transport industry for aircraft in service. In addition, based on a preliminary case study review the paper examines how the inadequate or subjective risk assessment and management deficiencies have failed to prevent the re-occurrence of serious incidents that may over time lead to an accident. Assuming that other transport industries such as automotive, chemical, nuclear and rail are utilising Quantified Risk Assessment methodology by developing commonly agreed risk acceptance criteria, air transport industry could only benefit by adopting a similar tailored approach and by applying the methodology and results of this study.
