The work will consist in:
Provision of a First List of Hazards/Preliminary Hazards Analysis
Recapitulation and review of Hazard Analysis concepts and methodologies used by European transport operators, supply industries, research institutes and methodologies developed in relevant EU and national research projects (e.g. MODURBAN, UGTMS). Consolidation of the state of the art into a shared preliminary hazards analysis concept, methodology and database. A list of potential hazards - including the harmonization of hazards as derived from different operational use cases will be defined. The list will be checked against demands/requirements in different countries (e.g. GTR55, STRMTG proposition).
Consistency of the Final Hazards Analysis
Besides the review and consolidation of relevant existing and available hazard analyses, it is a main objective of this task to complete the analysis in such a way, that no residual or even exotic combination of possible hazards in a guided urban transport system will be neglected. Previous hazard analyses for guided transport systems often dealt with hazard structures monitored by Train Control and Signalling Systems; operational hazards (e.g. evacuation), security implications (e.g. fire brigade dispatching), material impacts (e.g. rolling stock failures), degraded operations effects (e.g. driving â€œon sightâ€, manual temporary speed restrictions, auxiliary route settings etc.). Other aspects like staff safety, maintenance safety etc. have not sufficiently been taken into account yet. The MODSAFE Hazard Analysis will therefore go beyond the state of the art of hazard analyses and incorporate a wider range of potential hazards.
MODSAFE Risk Analysis
The outline of the MODsafe Hazard Analysis represents the fundamental data base for the later Consequence and Risk Analysis. Every identified hazard will be subject to a consequence and risk analysis involving amongst others:
