    Abstract

    Many challenges exist in the management and governance of industrial accidents. Accidents can result in releases to the environment; resulting in harm to people, and damage to ecosystems, property and companies’ imago. Both the complexity of processes and control systems, and the dangerous nature of chemicals and extreme weather events in the future, for example, could lead to an increase in the risk of accidents. The management of these situations demands suitable, tailored risk analysis methods. In this paper four such risk analysis methods are described.
