The technological age has seen a range of catastrophic and preventable failures, often as a result of decisions that did not appropriately consider safety as a factor in design and engineering. Through more than a dozen practical examples from the authors experience in nuclear power, aerospace, and other potentially hazardous facilities, Choosing Safety is the first book to bring together probabilistic risk assessment and decision analysis using real case studies. For managers, project leaders, engineers, scientists, and interested students, Michael V. Frank focuses on methods for making logical decisions about complex engineered systems and products in which safety is a key factor in design - and where failure can cause great harm, injury, or death.

These guidelines provide descriptive guidance on how to conduct risk characterization in various contexts, and utilizing a variety of tools and techniques. They have been developed in recognition of the fact that a reliable estimation of risk is critical to the overall risk assessment. This volume contains information that is useful to both risk assessors and risk managers, governments and food regulatory agencies, scientists, food producers and industries and other people or institutions with an interest in the area of microbiological hazards in food, their impact on human health and food trade and their control.--Publisher's description.

All the tools needed to perform a thorough riskassessment—whether you're working in insurance, forensics,engineering, or public safety Risk analysis is the method of analyzing the dangers toindividuals, businesses, and government agencies posed by potentialnatural and man-made hazards. The central task of the risk assessoris predicting the success of a project. This includes isolating theentire spectrum of adverse events that can derail a project orthreaten the health and safety of individuals, organizations, andthe environment. Designed as a practical, in-the-field toolkit, Risk Assessmentdetails every aspect of how a risk assessment is performed, showingthe proper tool to be used at various steps in the process, as wellas locating the tool that best fits the risk assessment task athand. Examining not only the very nature of risks and consequences,with fascinating historical examples, the book progresses fromsimple to more complex risk assessment techniques used by theauthors in their daily work, all presented in a form that can bereadily adapted to any number of real-life situations: Ecological Risk Assessment Task Analysis Techniques Preliminary Hazards Analysis Failure Mode and Effects Analysis Human Reliability Analysis Critical Incident Technique With numerous industry-specific case studies, as well asadditional case studies for risk assessments for a restaurant and aprocess plant, the book provides readers with complete examples ofhow each of the techniques can be used in a variety of real-worldsituations. Including downloadable worksheets and other usefulassessment materials, as well as guidance on using PRA software,this unparalleled reference offers all the tools and techniquesneeded to conduct a thorough and accurate assessment of risk.

Modelling of Environmental Chemical Exposure and Risk

Mathematical models are being increasingly used to estimate the concentrations of a wide range of substances in the environment for a variety of reasons, including government control and legislation, and risk and hazard estimation. Exposure assessment has to be performed for many types of substances, including pesticides, industrial chemicals, pollutants, accidental discharges, etc. The interpretation of the results of model equations should always bear in mind the purpose for which the model used was built in the first place. Further, models are always an abstraction of reality, requiring simplifying assumptions to keep the models within the restraints posed by computer performance and/or scientific knowledge. The present book treats the theme of modelling chemical exposure and risk in terms of four main topics: model characteristics, applications, comparison of estimated with measured concentrations, and modelling credibility.

With a weight-of-the-evidence approach, cancer risk assessment indentifies hazards, determines dose-response relationships, and assesses exposure to characterize the true risk. This book focuses on the quantitative methods for conducting chemical cancer risk assessments for solvents, metals, mixtures, and nanoparticles. It links these to the basic toxicology and biology of cancer, along with the impacts on regulatory guidelines and standards. By providing insightful perspective, Cancer Risk Assessment helps researchers develop a discriminate eye when it comes to interpreting data accurately and separating relevant information from erroneous.
