A hazard analysis was made to identify potential hazards in Mechanical Ground Support Equipments (MGSE) for ARSAT-1, a geostationary communications satellite that will be operated by AR-SAT and constructed by INVAP. This analysis was made in order to identify possible hazards on these MGSE and their causes together with the hazard controls and safety verification methods. The safety relevant time includes ground operations.
The lack of consolidated databases for such devices (especially for the ones constructed ad-hoc by INVAP) related to probability of failure of mechanical components, make probabilistic analysis (such as FMECA, risk quantification) very difficult to quantify in terms of reliable data. Therefore, the probability of occurrence of a determined event is reduced adopting control measures to establish several safety barriers to avoid the hazard to occur.
