Boston; Oxford: Butterworth-Heinemann, 2000. — 545 p. — ISBN 0-7506-7208-0.Key words: Nuclear power plants, Chemical plants, Risk assessment. The last three decades have seen the development of a new science to help us better understand the risk of events about which there is often very little information. The reason there is interest in such a science is that there are a great many societal benefits from activities that involve risk; risk that if properly managed through better understanding can greatly benefit the quality of all life on the planet earth, both plant and animal. That science is quantitative risk assessment, also known by such names as probabilistic risk assessment and probabilistic safety assessment, the latter being the preferred name for this text. Probabilistic safety assessment divides the risk question into three questions "What can go wrong? " "How likely is it? " and "What are the consequences? " Probabilistic safety assessment has had its greatest push in relation to the assessment of risk associated with nuclear power plant operation as documented in the author's previous book. This new book, besides updating and reorganizing the nuclear portions of the previous text, ventures into the safety assessment of chemical facilities, another important industry driver of probabilistic safety assessment methods and applications.Protecting the Public Health and Safety.
