Safety risk management
Safety risk management is a key component of any SMS and involves identifying safety hazards to your operations and assessing the risks and mitigating them.
A hazard is anything that could cause harm, damage or injury, or have negative consequences such as bad weather, high workload/fatigue and lack of emergency equipment.
There are many ways of identifying hazards, some of which you may already be doing. To successfully identify hazards you should think laterally and be unencumbered by past ideas and experiences.
