Hazard Management vs. Safety Risk Management Guide

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has received questions from public transportation agencies and State Safety Oversight (SSO) Agencies regarding how the hazard management process, previously required in FTA’s original SSO regulation (49 C.F.R. Part 659), differs from the Safety Risk Management (SRM) process required in FTA’s Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) regulation at 49 C.F.R. Part 673 (Part 673). This guide explains these differences and highlights how key hazard management elements support implementation of the new SRM process.
