A System Perspective for Assessing and Avoiding Low-Probability, High-Consequence Events
- Hans Pasman, TNO Initiative for Industrial Safety, Delft, The Netherlands
Risk Analysis in Industrial Processes provides an analysis of the current approaches to preventing disasters, and also gives an overview as to what methods you may wish to adopt. The table of contents covers safety regulations, history and trends, industrial disasters, safety problems, safety tools, cost and benefits of safety. Dr. Pasman and a team of expert contributors have pooled their expertise to create a book that will support you in helping your clients, and preventing your own technological disasters. Tools covered include Life Cycle Assessment, Fault and Event Tree analysis, System-Theoretic Accident Model and Processes (STAMP) and System-Theoretic Process Analysis (STPA).
This book will help you make safety not just a cost, but a long term investment from personnel, asset, environmental, and reputation risk. Case studies have been included to assist understanding of how to perform safety analysis. Risk Analysis in Industrial Processes will enable you to make decisions with a high degree of certainty, taking into account possible consequences and how to control disaster risk.
