This volume attempts, for the first time, to link the science of risk analysis with the currently on-going movement on the use of stakeholders' processes. It is intended to assess the current practice of risk engineering, and to address the potential interactions with stakeholders' processes. New type models for risk screening and prioritisation at plant and regional levels are presented using fuzzy sets. The advent of integrated risk assessment Decision Support Systems in connection with stakeholders' processes, and their interactions, are put into a practice perspective for today's developments in risk engineering. Audience: Postgraduate students, practitioners in consulting engineering, national regulatory bodies interested in applying science of risk analysis to interactions with stakeholders.
Developed at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, this volume suggests procedures for risk assessment of health and environmental impacts and the consequences of accidental releases arising from hazardous industries, such as processing plants and the storage and transportation of dangerous goods. Because of heightened community awareness, the interaction with stakeholders and their values is considered within the process. New type models for risk screening and prioritization at plant and regional levels are presented using fuzzy sets. The book also reviews established methods in risk engineering and hazard evaluation.
