    Abstract

    Although the use of safety analysis has increased and become common, the quality of the analysis is sometimes criticised. The quality management of safety analysis can be based on the evaluation of the analysis process and identification of its shortcomings. The high quality of an analysis can be best assured, while possible weak points are recognised and eliminated already when planning the analysis. In this, the role of the analysis leader is crucial. The paper discusses quality management, and means for improving the quality of safety analyses. The emphasis is on the roles of the analysis leader and subscriber, requirements for a analysis leader, and means for assuring the quality. The meaning and importance of the subscriber's role to safety analyses in industry are discussed.
