TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 145: Applying an SMS Approach to Wildlife Hazard Management introduces and guides the application of a risk-based approach to wildlife hazard management (WHM) programs and outlines additional steps for integrating programs into an airport’s Safety Management System (SMS).

This report also provides a customizable tool, which is available as a CD-ROM. The tool includes:

  • A summary of existing database wildlife hazard descriptions
  • Numerical values for hazard severity and likelihood by species, derived from the FAA Wildlife Strike Database
  • An electronic or manual risk analysis template, which includes the incorporation of variables on or off the airport

The CD-ROM is also available for download from TRB’s website as an ISO image. Links to the ISO image and instructions for burning a CD-ROM from an ISO image are provided below.
