Learn Preliminary Hazard Identification

Learn Preliminary Hazard Identification.

In this video, we find out how to perform Preliminary Hazard Identification, the first step in safety assessment.  We look at three classic complementary techniques to identify hazards and their pros and cons.  This includes all the content from Task 201, and also practical insights from my 25 years of experience with Mil-Std-882.

Let’s look at what we’re doing today, which is Preliminary Hazard Identification. We are looking at one of the first analysis tasks in Mil-Std-882E, which is a systems safety engineering standard from the US government, and it’s typically used on military systems, but it does turn up elsewhere.

Preliminary Hazard ID is Task 201

I’m recording this on the 2nd of February 2020, but the Echo version of the Mil-Std has been in existence since May 2012 and it is still current.  It looks like it is sticking around for quite a while, so this lesson isn’t likely to go out of date anytime soon.

Topics for this Session

What we’re going to cover is, quoting from the task, first of all, we’re going to look at the purpose and the task description, where the task talks quite a lot about historical review (I think we’ve got three slides of that), recording results, putting stuff in contracts and then I’m adding some commentary of my own.

I will be commenting all the way through, that’s the value add, that’s why I’m doing this, but then there’s some specific extra information that I think you will find helpful, should you need to implement Task 201. In this session, we’ve moved up one level from awareness and we are now looking at practice, at being equipped to actually perform safety jobs, to do safety tasks.
