RISK MANAGEMENT IN (AIR) TRANSPORT WITH EXEMPLARY RISK ANALYSIS BASED ON THE TOLERABILITY MATRIX

This article is a continuation of the authors’ study on the ways to ensure safety in the Air Traffic Management (ATM) system. It directly refers to the processes of risk management involving, in particular, risk management in (air) transport. The main aim of this paper is to present and indicate the hazard identification and risk assessment tools that can be used in air transport and to apply one of them for a risk analysis of a specific ATM originating case. This is why, after a short

THE GLUEVAR RISK MEASURE AND INVESTOR’S ATTITUDES TO RISK– AN APPLICATION TO THE NON-FERROUS METALS MARKET

Investing in the economic world, characterized by a high level of uncertainty and volatility, entails a higher level of risk related to investment. One of the most commonly used risk measure is Value-at-Risk. However, despite the ease of calculation and interpretation, this measure suffers from a significant drawback – it is not subadditive. This property is the key issue in terms of portfolio diversification. Another risk measure, which meets this assumption, has been proposed – Conditional

RISK AND HUMAN FACTOR IN CARRIAGE OF DANGEROUS GOODS BY ROAD

Authors in the article present an original method of risk assessment, taking “human errors” into account in its assumptions, filling an existing methodological gap in this field of study. This article presents a general concept of a method: estimating risk assessment and modeling human factors as the main cause of a road accident. Fuzzy logic techniques have been used to generate the value of the parameter characterizing the human factor. The authors’ “band” model

A dynamic MST-deltaCoVaR model of systemic risk in the European insurance sector

This work is a response to the EIOPA paper entitled ‘Systemic risk and macroprudential policy in insurance’, which asserts that in order to evaluate the potential systemic risk (SR), the build-up of risk, especially risk arising over time, should be taken into account, as well as the interlinkages occurring in the financial sector and the whole economy. The topological indices of minimum spanning trees (MST) and the deltaCoVaR measure are the main tools used to analyse the systemic

INFLUENCE OF IMPLEMENTATION OF TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED EVACUATION MODELS ON THE PROCESS OF DECREASING THE RISK DURING ACCIDENTS IN AN LNG TERMINAL

Summary. The continuing growth of the LNG (liquid natural gas) industry has led to a rapid increase in the construction of LNG terminals and the need for accurate risk assessment models as accidents involving LNG are potentially hazardous and pose a major threat. One aspect of risk modeling - evacuation of people to the safe zones of an LNG terminal - is a complex problem that has yet to receive sufficient attention. The aim of this paper is to illustrate how the implementation of a

Risk factors for suicide attempts in the total population of Faroese eighth graders

Suicide is still one of the leading causes of youth mortality, and amongst others previous suicide attempts have been found to be one of the strongest risk factors for suicide. The objective of this study is to examine risk factors of suicide attempts in a total population of Faroese adolescents. It is expected that anxious attachment, high scores on negative affectivity and low scores on past and present social support were correlated to an increased risk of life-time suicide attempts in both

Risk in New Sexual Relationships: Trajectories of Protection*

How do sex risk and protection change over the course of a relationship? It is often claimed that protection generally declines over the course of relationships. This 3-year longitudinal study examines 412 new sexual relationships described by 126 adult participants and tests this claim. Analyses identify four relationship trajectories: only 15% of new sex relationships show a declining trajectory of protection; another 12% show only a temporary decline.

INTRODUCTION Globally, rates of melanoma in fair skinned populations have been increasing for several decades with New Zealand and Australia having the highest rates in the world. Although melanoma represents less than 10% of all skin cancers, it has a high metastatic potential and accounts for the vast majority of skin-cancer related deaths. Compared to the general population, airline pilots and cabin crew have approximately twice the risk of developing melanoma, with pilots also having double

These are related in part to abnormal glucose levels, resulting in inflammatory and atherogenic response, hypertension and abnormal lipid profile. This increases the risk of cardiovascular disease significantly besides developing diabetes later.

The producer's risk in relation to the entire lot of materials is derived and illustrated by numerical examples.

Low risk of hemolysis after transfusion of uncrossmatched red blood cells

Transfusing uncrossmatched red blood cells (RBCs) can be a lifesaving bridge until crossmatched RBCs are available. The risk of using uncrossmatched RBCs is that of hemolysis from unexpected clinically significant antibodies. This study sought to quantify the risk of hemolysis after the transfusion of uncrossmatched RBCs. The records of recipients of uncrossmatched RBCs over approximately 9 months were retrieved from the regional transfusion service. Basic immunohematologic data were recorded

Genetic variation within the RHD gene can alter expression of the antigen both qualitatively and quantitatively.

A previous pregnancy and/or blood transfusions were ruled out as factors influencing the antibody production.

The use of neuromonitoring in descending and thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery. Literature Review

An extensive major operation is required to correct an aneurysm that involves the descending or thoracoabdominal aorta. Particular considerations must be made to protection of all abdominal organs, the brain and the spinal cord which are all at risk. Consequently there is a risk that these patients post operatively wake up paraplegic from spinal cord ischaemia due to the nature of the surgery. Certain

Ultrasound screening for pyelectasis in pregnant women. Clinical necessity or “art for art’s sake”?

of pregnancy and in multiple pregnancies. Pyelectasis during pregnancy rarely causes clinical symptoms and often does not require treatment. Nevertheless, urine retention in the renal pelvicalyceal system is conducive to the development of asymptomatic bacteriuria and may be a risk factor for recurrent urinary tract infections, pyelonephritis and acute kidney failure; it may also cause renal colic. In consequence, this condition can lead to intrauterine infection and premature labor in the

Visceral artery aneurysms – classification, diagnosis and treatment

of aneurysm size and detection of potential complications in cases that are ineligible for treatment. The type of treatment depends on the size of an aneurysm, the course of the disease, risk of rupture and risk associated with surgery or endovascular procedure. Endovascular treatment is preferred in most cases. Aneurysms are excluded from the circulation using embolization coils, ethylene vinyl alcohol, stents, multilayer stents, stent grafts and histoacryl glue (or a combination of these

Ultrasonographic criteria of cesarean scar defect evaluation

myometrial tear at the wound site. Such an ultrasound appearance is referred to as a niche, and it forms after a cesarean section at the site of the hysterotomy of the anterior uterine wall, most commonly within the uterine isthmus. Currently, the exact cause of niche formation remains unexplained, yet the risk factors for its development are universally acknowledged. They include the site of hysterotomy, multiple previous cesarean section deliveries, suturing technique and maternal diabetes or smoking
