Abstract The topic of the article is to explain some peculiarities in definitions according to ICAO Safety Management System, USA FAA and Slovak legislation. Misunderstandings with terms “risk” and “hazard” following International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), USA Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) definitions and Slovak Workplace health and safety legislation it could make a problem in aviation risk management and hazard identification according to ICAO Safety Management System (SMS). In Slovak administrative law the term a hazard is missing. Instead of term hazard terms danger, thread or dangerousness are used.
