Abstract

Faults represent non-conformities in productive activities. Therefore, approaches to their mitigation are relevant. Risk management techniques enable effective company’s strategic planning and the adoption of process controls towards failure reduction and assurance of adequate occupational health and safety. This research purported to integrate four widespread techniques, which are usually applied as stand-alone tools, to provide a robust risk management approach. A literature review about Process Mapping, Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), and Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) is provided and their integration feasibility is analyzed, followed by an application study in a shipyard located in Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil.
