Risk assessment

This family of measures includes a number of different ways in which an organisation or the railway industry identifies risks in normal or special circumstances. This is an underpinning measure which supports decision-making and targeting of other measures.

It is considered an organisational family because it is closely linked to the planning of an intervention. This family of measures is also transverse because it involves different levels of analysis and organisation which could precede the implementation of measures from other families.

Measures in this family could also be understood as structural measures, planning measures, or underpinning measures and may refer to concepts such as: data collection practices, data improvement, or consistency of reporting.
