The Transportation System Safety Methodology is comprised of two major sections -- a management section and a Transportation System Safety Program. The Management portion describes the ideal philosophy and attitude of safety management, and provides guidelines for appropriate organization and staffing of safety activities within the parent organization, and for policy and objective development, selection, training, certification and motivation of personnel, data base requirements, assignment of accountability, and measuring program effectiveness. The Program section provides a description of the hazard identification and analysis, and investigation and review processes, and introduces the techniques to be used in Safety Analysis. These analytical methods are discussed in their application to each phase of the transportation activity cycle: concept formulation, preliminary design, engineering design, production, and operation and maintenance, providing specific guidelines to the transportation system safety process in any given modal organization.
