Safety events offer an apparent opportunity to learn about the operational reality and contribute to risk management. Intensive focus on events has also been criticized, as managing safety events does not seem to correlate with avoiding major accidents. The paper presents a new approach for integrating safety event data in the risk management process by introducing an event risk assessment method and a framework for so-called safety factors. Consequently, event data can be turned into risk data and aggregated presentations of cumulative risk can be created. Safety factors allow capturing negative and positive aspects of safety in line with safety-II principles. The methods are discussed both from the perspective of the underlying safety science and the practical constraints when one has to deal with a constant flow of events. Both methods produce immediate results but also integrate well in the overall risk management process.
