Editorial Reviews

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.
