Dr. Brent D. Bowen, Dr. Chien-tsung Lu, MEASURING THE SAFETY PERFORMANCE OF 10 MAJOR AIR CARRIERS IN THE UNITED STATES: THE AIRLINE SAFETY REPORT (1997-2000) 

Commercial air transportation is a very safe way to travel (Federal Aviation Administration [FAA], 2001 March). In 1998, there were only ten fatal accidents out of approximately eighteen million flights globally (Boeing, 2000). In 1997, the risk of fatality fell to one in eight million. Between 1990 and 1997, while the whole airline enplanement had increased dramatically, the risk of fatality was reduced annually (Gellman Research Association [GRA], 1997).

However, the threats of potential accidents still remain and would likely to attack aviation safety from different dimensions. This is true because aviation accidents were not solely caused by one factor. For instance, the mishandling of hazardous materials (oxygen canisters) led to the crash of ValuJet flight 592; the aging electrical wiring system inside center fuel tank of 747 caused the explosion of TWA Flight 800; the pilot's poor decision-making skills and misjudgment caused the crash of American Airlines Flight 1420; the malfunctioning maintenance of rudder hydraulic mechanism resulted in the mishap of Alaska Airlines Flight 261; the crash of American Airlines Flight 587 possibly due to metallic fatigue; and the terrorist attacks contributed to 9-11 disaster in the United States (US). From the standpoint of government, aviation community, and the general public, those aforementioned mishaps have urged a demand in terms of a higher level of scrutiny to airline safety in the United States (National Transportation Safety Board [NTSB], 2000a). And a wider-range safety factors leading to aircraft disasters and passenger fatalities has simultaneously hastened the call for a more proactive and objective measure of aviation safety...

Nijole Batarliene, INFORMATION MODELLING OF HAZARDOUS GOODS' TRANSPORTATION REGULATIONS

There are many hazardous goods in Lithuania transported as transit goods and also inside of the country: by road transport - about 25 %, by railway transport - about 55 %, by pipe transport - 100 %, by air - about 1 % of all goods transported with corresponding mean of transport.

The transportation of hazardous goods is one of the most complicated spheres of transport and it requires the most safety measures because if there is an accident, a hazardous cargo can get into the environment and cause grave consequences.

Lithuania respects the international rules for transportation of hazardous goods. Also the accredited institutes by the government of the Republic of Lithuania, while not breaking the principle of free movement of goods between the countries are estimating restrictions and toughening the requirements for the purpose of national safety, environment protection, safety of traffic, vehicle's, receptacle's and container's suitability for usage...

Aldona Jarašūniene, THE USAGE OF LITHUANIAN ROAD TRANSPORT INSPECTORATE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES AND ESTIMATION OF TRANSPORT TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESS 

Using new Information Systems between transport means is very important. The activities and using of IS of the state road Transport Inspectorate which is playing very important role in the development of transport system is described. There are showed activities of IS of Inspectorate, estimation of IS, computerized IS in Inspectorate. The estimation of interdepartmental collaboration and common IS using with foreign countries are showed. Analysis of technological processes and their optimisation in transport enables successful functioning of transport means, thus guaranteeing for consignee reliability, independency and quality [1/4]. The inspection quality partially makes a positive influence on security, freight preserve, and efficient delivery to the client. Therefore it is important to analyse technological processes in transport, their optimisation opportunities, as well as the application and assessment of models...
