Risk assessment and inherently safer design principles

  • Health and safety
  • Land-use planning
  • Permitting processes / policy integration
  • Reporting official statistics
  • Socio-economic and environmental impact assessments

Challenge the practice is addressing: Using best practices for the process safety assessment.

Concrete practice to achieve the expected goal: It will be carried out using widely used risk analysis methods and the Inherently Safer Design principles (ISD) will be emphasised. The ISD looks at eliminating or reducing hazards rather than controlling them.

Expected impact/goal of the practice: The identification of dangerous phenomena that could lead to accidents.

Who is the target user group of the practice/intervention or implementing the practice/intervention? Mainly industry but also public policy
