Abstract (Swedish)
There are different rules and laws which companies and industries in a society must follow. Steps to comply with one law or rule may reduce the ability to comply with another. A sector where such a conflict could occur is in aviation, where the reduction of environmental and safety risks may be in conflict with each other.
To meet the security requirements of an airport during the winter season when ice and snow can cause poor friction on runways, use of de-icing chemicals may be necessary. Using these de-icing chemicals means continued good conditions on the runway, despite the winter weather. This means that the airport's desire to reduce the security risk can be maintained. De-icing chemicals may be an environmental hazard to the... (More)
There are different rules and laws which companies and industries in a society must follow. Steps to comply with one law or rule may reduce the ability to comply with another.

To meet the security requirements of an airport during the winter season when ice and snow can cause poor friction on runways, use of de-icing chemicals may be necessary. Using these de-icing chemicals means continued good conditions on the runway, despite the winter weather. This means that the airport's desire to reduce the security risk can be maintained. De-icing chemicals may be an environmental hazard to the surroundings of the runways, which is contrary to the desire to reduce environmental risk as far as possible. To reduce environmental and safety risks can thus cause a conflict for an airport in winter operation.
This master thesis investigates the situation at Oslo airport Gardermoen (OSL). The purpose is to highlight the conflict between the reduction of environmental and safety risks at OSL by answering the question, "Is there currently a conflict between reducing environmental and safety risks at OSL?" To answer this question, five interviews and a calculation example are performed.
The results of the interviews and calculation example both suggest that the conflict that has been highlighted here is strictly theoretical. It is according to the authors of this report not possible to identify a conflict between reducing the environmental and safety risks during the winter season at OSL. (Less)
