Industrial maintenance operations include a variety of risks, which should be identified and managed systematically. This thesis bases on a set of studies, which explored the safety risks in maintenance operations together with types and causes of maintenance accidents. In addition, studies were carried out to explore identification and modelling of the accident risks. As a result, the thesis gives proposals for identification, modelling and management of the accident risks in companies. The focus is on the maintenance worker's viewpoint. The results can be applied in machine and system design, as well as in maintenance task planning and supervision. The results can be also utilized in companies to manage and design maintenance safety.
