Modern analytical techniques in a mobile laboratory - A review of three years of experience in the control of hazardous goods transport
Moderne instrumentelle Analytik in einem mobilen Labor - Erfahrungen aus drei Jahren Praxis bei der Kontrolle von Gefahrguttransporten [in German]
On behalf of the Austrian Federal Minister for Public Economy and Transport, the Bundesprüfanstalt für Kraftfahrzeuge (Federal Control Establishment for Motor Vehicles) has developed a test trailer for testing the safety of transport of hazardous materials. It was commissioned on 29 June 1987. The controls usually take place on the grounds of the customs offices of heavily used border-crossing points and consist of a strict technical examination of the truck's condition. X-ray fluorescent analysis, GC-MS and varius chemical tests are available for the control of dangerous loads. By means of energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescent analysis, samples can be analysed without any preparation. The advantage of this method is that it combines mobility and conventional laboratory techniques.

Documentation of hazard and operability studies
In the United States, the recently enacted Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 and the proposed Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Process Safety Management Standard both require that hazard evaluations be completed on all facilities that handle hazardous chemicals. Reports of the hazard evaluations must be kept on file and will be subject to inspection during an OSHA compliance audit. This paper presents a suggested outline and format for the completion of a Hazards and Operability (HAZOP) Study. The goal of the HAZOP report is to allow a person who was not a member of the original HAZOP team to understand what was reviewed and what needs to be done to improve the system. Included in this paper are a list of documents needed to complete a HAZOP review, a typical HAZOP worksheet, and a suggested table of contents for a final HAZOP report.

Detection of corrosion in aerial systems
Diagnostic corrosion des réseaux aériens [in French]
Fire-fighting systems are essential for the protection of workers and equipment in an enterprise. Their reliability depends on constant testing. For sprinklers, this includes corrosion tests, localisation of spills, and operational tests (destructive tests; non-destructive tests using γ-radiation or ultrasound). Chemical tests (of the water, deposits and corrosion products) can also be performed. A combination of all these testing methods permits appropriate preventive and/or repair maintenance.

System safety in the commercialization of space
A license to conduct a commercial space launch in the US must be secured from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Office of Commercial Space Transportation (OCST). The OCST must conduct a safety review of both the launch vehicle system and the spacecraft along with a review of the license applicant's safety programme and procedures, before a license is granted. A model commercialisation agreement has been developed for launches from test ranges controlled by the U.S. Air Force. This agreement requires that the range user must comply with the various range safety requirements established by the range organisations. The paper discusses the system and range safety activities associated with the commercialisation of space from the perspective of the system safety manager for one of the commercial launch services contractors.
