Traffic Incidents Analysis as a Tool for Improvement of Transport Safety

Jacek Skorupski


Safety of traffic is one of the most important factors to be taken into account during organisation and operation of transport systems. One of the primary sources of information and inspiration in the creation of new, more secure solutions are the events with most serious consequences called accidents (air), serious accidents (rail) or catastrophes (road, sea). The investigation of the causes of these events provides answers to questions concerning the possible ways of modernization of components of the transport system. In this paper, it is proposed to draw more attention to the events of somewhat less severity of the consequences - serious incidents (air), traffic conflicts (road) and incidents (rail, maritime). These events include a broad class of cases in which the number of barriers against accident (crash) failed - but not all of them. Quantitative analysis of these events can provide information about the reliability of safety management system (SMS) components, and thus allow improving transport safety.
