Risk Assessment of Human Error in Orange-line Metro Depot Operation
Keywords:Equipment Failure, Human Error, Historical Incident Data, Rail Mass Transit, Risk Assessment, Risk Matrix
This research paper employs a comprehensive risk matrix approach to analyze the potential risks associated with the Orange Line Metro Rail Transit System (OLMRTS). The major focus of this study revolves around two critical safety variables: human error and equipment failure, with a particular emphasis on human error as the most significant contributing factor. The research methodology involves the development of risk assessment models based on various incident scenarios. To identify potential hazards and assess their severity, historical incident data from a range of sources was collected and analyzed. This data made it possible to identify a number of potentially hazardous circumstances that could have an adverse impact on OLMRTS depot operations. The frequency and severity of each hazardous event were carefully evaluated based on the historical incident data, providing valuable insights into the potential risks faced by the system. The key findings of this investigation highlight that human-related activities emerge as the most significant potential cause of risk within the context of OLMRTS. The data analysis indicates a high level of risk associated with human error, underscoring the importance of addressing and mitigating these risks to enhance the overall safety and reliability of the OLMRTS system.
