Guidance on Hazard Identification and Classification
|Publication Date:||1 June 2014|
Purpose of this document
This document gives guidance on identifying hazards and assessing risk. This guidance is intended to assist organisations involved in the GB mainline railway system in understanding their responsibilities in these areas.
This document, together with GE/GN8643 and the BS EN 50126 series, provide the detail needed to support the Common Safety Method on risk evaluation and assessment (CSM on RA), which is essentially a framework that describes a common mandatory European risk management process for the GB rail industry.
Part 3 reproduces without amendment the content of Chapter 15 of Yellow Book Issue 4 (YB4) and identifies where the guidance is out-of-date or needs to be treated with caution.
