This course covers the SAE ARP4761 approach to system safety assessment and much more.
Topics covered include Functional Hazard Assessment (FHA), Preliminary System Safety Assessment (PSSA), System Safety Assessment (SSA), Common Cause Analysis (CCA), Development Assurance Levels (DALs), Certification Maintenance Requirements (CMRs), and Minimum Equipment Lists (MELs).
This course includes a lot more than you would expect (e.g., the elements of system safety that are missing or flat out wrong in SAE ARP4761). Piqued your interest?
Practical insight is provided (e.g., how do you prepare for and conduct an FHA?). Also discussed are the difficulties that can be encountered applying safety assessment techniques.
System safety is a key element of airworthiness. For this reason, when we think of system safety, we think of safety relative to flying the aircraft. There are other types of safety though. There is safety as it applies to the crew and passengers, there is safety as it applies to maintaining the aircraft, there is safety as it applies to the environment, and there is safety as it pertains to health hazards. These additional aspects of safety assessment are discussed as well.
For military applications, we also cover the topics of Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), Subsystem Hazard Analysis (SSHA), and System Hazard Analysis (SHA) as well. Interested in a critique of PHA/SSHA/SHA versus FHA/PSSA/SSA, just ask.
