In this study, the risk factors of port operations were analysed using proposed advance risk matrix analysis. The risk was identified by combination of intensive literature review and brainstorming with port experts. The risk identified was analysed by using risk matrix techniques where the risk likelihood, risk severity and risk frequency was determined. The questionnaire form was used in order to ease the data collection process and distributed to one multipurpose port of one major ports in Malaysia. Based on analysis, the risk factor of accident for handling cargo at port were summarized, based on risk rating, it can be found R2 (Communication misunderstanding) was the highest risk fact for all of three ports, Port A, B and C. Meanwhile the lowest risk factors for Port A and Port C was R18 (Day Vs Night) and for Port B was R18 (Requisite safety facilities and equipment tallied with standards). It was found that Port C was found as the riskiest port compared to Port A and Port B as the number of risk factors in risk level III was higher compared from both Ports. The outcome of the study was development of risk management framework for safety evaluation in port industry in Malaysia.
