  • Risk assessment in mining industry

    Mining is a hazardous operation and it involves considerable safety and health risk to the miners. Unsafe conditions in the surface and underground mines lead to a number of accidents/disasters, injury and loss to human lives. However, the hazards cannot be completely obliterated and thus there is need to define and reckon with an accident risk level possible to be presented in either ...

  • Practical applications of quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) for water safety plans

    The absence of indicator organisms in drinking water does not provide sufficient guarantee for microbial safety. Therefore the water utilities are implementing water safety plans (WSP) to safeguard drinking water quality. Quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) can be used to provide objective quantitative input for the WSP. This study presents several applications of treatment modelling in ...

  • Managing uncertainty in health risk assessment

    The process of risk (safety) assessment used to determine negligible-risk levels of human exposure to toxicants is subject to a number of sources of uncertainty. In addition to the common uncertainties related to high-to-low-dose extrapolation, interspecies extrapolation and intraspecies extrapolation, there can be uncertainty associated with extrapolation to alternative routes and durations of ...

  • Credibility in risk assessment: a normative approach

    The methodology of risk assessment has been heavily criticised for a number of years, but its importance as a normative practice is, if anything, increasing in a society that is sceptical of special interests and expert bodies. This implies that it is becoming increasingly important to be normative about how risk assessment is conducted. The purpose of this paper is to describe a study aimed at ...

  • Risk-based management of waterway safety

    Considering safety to be defined as an acceptable level of risk, waterway managers seek to minimise risks in order to maximise safety. Failures in waterway operations result in events that may require emergency response. A proactive management approach identifies potential risks (events, their likelihoods, and their adverse consequences) associated with waterway operations, and identifies areas ...

    This report highlights the need to carry out inclusive risk assessment; to take into account the diversity of the workforce when assessing and managing risks. Workers are not all exposed to the same risks and some specific groups of workers are exposed to increased risks (or are subject to particular requirements). When we speak about workers exposed to ‘particular’ or ‘increased’ risks, we refer ...

  • Quantitative risk assessment across major hazard industries

    The terms QRA (Quantitative Risk assessment), PSA (Probabilistic Safety Assessment) and PRA (Probabilistic Risk Analysis) are used synonymously in different industries to describe various techniques for evaluating risk.
