CPD: Certificate (without chop) will be distributed to IOSH members during registration.
Content: The speaker will describe a risk-based approach to verify the safety acceptance of an emergency braking system of a modern light rail vehicle. Using an integrated event tree/fault tree risk model, all perceivable failure scenarios associated with the emergency braking system were postulated, and their consequence and frequency of occurrence were individually quantified. The total risk associated with the emergency braking system was assessed. Using application examples, the Speaker will demonstrate that the risk-based approach can be an effective risk management tool, and can offer significant advantages over the “worst case analysis” approach commonly used in the transit industry to justify safety acceptance.
Remarks: No attendance certificate will be issued to those who arrived after 7:15pm.
