Learn System Requirements Hazard Analysis

Learn System Requirements Hazard Analysis.

In this 45-minute session, The Safety Artisan looks at Safety Requirements Hazard Analysis, or SRHA, which is Task 203 in the Mil-Std-882E standard. We explore Task 203’s aim, description, scope, and contracting requirements. SRHA is an important and complex task, which needs to be done on several levels to be successful. This video explains the issues and discusses how to perform SRHA well.

System Requirements Hazard Analysis

And so today, which is the 1st of March 2020, we’re going to be talking about System Requirements Hazard Analysis. And this is part of our series on Military Standard 882E (882 Echo) and this lesson is on Task 203. It’s a very widely-used system safety engineering standard and its influence is found in many places, not just on military procurement programs.

Topics for this Session

We’re going to look at this task, which is very important, possibly the most important task of all, as we’ll see.  I’m going to talk about the purpose of the task, which is word-for-word from the task description itself.

We’re going to talk about in the task description, the three aims of this task, which is to determine or work out requirements, incorporate them, and then assess the compliance of the system with those requirements, because it may not be a simple read-across. We’ve got six slides on that. That’s most of the task.

Then we’ve just got one slide on contracting, which if you’ve seen any of the others in this series, will seem very familiar. We’ve got a little bit of a chat about Section 4.2 from the standard and some commentary, and the reason for that will become clear. So, let’s crack on.

System Requirements Hazard Analysis

Starting with Task 203.1, the purpose of Task 203 is to perform and document a System Requirements Hazard Analysis or SRHA. As we’ve already said, the purpose of this is to determine the design requirements. We’re going to focus on design rather than buying stuff off the shelf – we’ll talk about the implications of that a little bit later.

Design requirements to eliminate or reduce hazards and risks, incorporate those requirements, into a says, into the documentation, but what it should say is incorporate risk reduction measures into the system itself and then document it. And then finally, to assess compliance of the system with these requirements.

Then it says that SRHA addresses all life-cycle phases, not just for some phases of the program. What are the requirements through life for the system? And in all modes. Whether it’s in operation, whether it’s in maintenance or refit, whether it’s being repaired or disposed of, whatever it might be…
