Although there are many different hazard control techniques developed over the past 40 years, only a handful are applied by safety analysts in their daily work. In Hazard Analysis Techniques for System Safety, author Clifton Ericson explains in detail how to perform the most commonly used hazard techniques employed by the system safety engineering discipline.

Focusing on the 22 most commonly used hazard analysis technologies in the system safety discipline, author Clifton Ericson outlines the three components that comprise a hazard analysis, examining each in sufficient detail, with numerous illustrations and examples, to enable the reader to easily understand and perform the analysis.

Techniques covered include:

  • Preliminary Hazard List (PHL) Analysis
  • Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA)
  • Subsystem Hazard Analysis (SSHA)
  • System Hazard Analysis (SHA)
  • Operating and Support Hazard Analysis (O&SHA)
  • Health Hazard Assessment (HHA)
  • Safety Requirements/Criteria Analysis (SRCA)
  • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
  • Event Tree Analysis (ETA)
  • Fault Hazard Analysis
  • Functional Hazard Analysis
  • Sneak Circuit Analysis (SCA)
  • Petri Net Analysis (PNA)
  • Markov Analysis (MA)
  • Barrier Analysis (BA)
  • Bent Pin Analysis (BPA)
  • HAZOP Analysis
  • Cause Consequences Analysis (CCA)
  • Common Cause Failure Analysis (CCFA)
  • MORT Analysis
  • Software Safety Assessment (SWSA)

Written to be accessible to readers with a minimal amount of technical background, Hazard Analysis Techniques for System Safety gathers, for the first time in one source, the techniques that safety analysts actually apply in daily practice. Both new and seasoned analysts will find this book an invaluable resource for designing and constructing safe systems.

Clifton A. Ericson II is a project manager for systems safety and software safety. He previously spent 35 years at Boeing where, in 2000, he won the Apollo Award for fault tree training on the International Space Station and the Boeing Achievement Award for developing the Boeing Fault Tree Analysis course. He also wrote a Navy manual on system safety for the Naval Ordnance Safety and Security Activity (NOSSA) and also manages several system/software safety projects. Mr. Ericson is past president (2001-2003) and past executive vice president (1999-2001) of the System Safety Society. In 1998, 1999, and 2004, he won the System Safety Society’s President Award for outstanding work in system safety.
