Languages of publication



While considering the issue of the air transport safety, special attention should be given to projects related to air transport of hazardous materials, which occupy an increasingly important position in the global air transport. The authors of this article undertook the analysis of selected aspects of security aiming at minimization of the risks occurring during transportation of hazardous materials. Nevertheless, the main subject of research is a human factor and its impact on the possibility of occurrence of flight events involving dangerous substances and objects. As a result of the analysis the main causes of flight events caused by air transport participants were indicated and discussed. The examples illustrate the gaps and short comings in the transport procedures for these materials. These procedures should be updated from time to time by the knowledge acquired through the experience of the occurrence of bad or irregular shipments of dangerous goods.
