Описание: A Risk–centric Approach The Future of the Safety Profession The information and tools contained in Risk Assessment: A Practical Guide to Assessing Operational Risks should get into the hands and minds of every practicing Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) Professional. The biggest risk to an organization is not taking a risk–based approach to protecting people, property and the environment. Organizational confidence in assessing operational risks will come when adopting and building upon the principles and learning s that come from these author s body of work. Defining what Safe looks like must become the future of our profession. Dave Walline, CSP Committee Chair, ASSE Risk Assessment Institute 2013–2015 Risk Assessment: A Practical Guide to Assessing Operational Risk provides the fundamentals on risk assessment, with practical applications, for undergraduate and graduate students and employed safety, health, and environmental professionals who recognize that they are expected to have risk assessment capabilities. This book fills a void. No other textbook has been written as a primer for students and employed safety professionals that covers the fundamentals of risk assessment and emphasizes taking a practical approach in the application of the techniques. In addition, the book addresses seven of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) criteria for safety programs. Over time, risk assessments have been given more prominence as an element in an operational risk management system. This text will serve the needs of professors at a university level who sense the need for their students to have knowledge and capability with respect to risk assessment. It will also serve as a primer for employed safety professionals who need a practical guide on various risk assessment techniques. Risk assessment methods including task analysis, job risk assessment, preliminary hazard analysis, failure mode and effects analysis, what–if analysis, and bow–tie analysis, as well as specific applications including design safety reviews, ergonomic risks, food safety, organizational risk assessment, and project risk are covered in a step by step approach. Including numerous interactive exercises, links, videos, and downloadable risk assessment tools this textbook can be used by undergraduate and graduate students and employed safety, health, and environmental professionals who recognize that they are expected to have risk assessment capabilities Georgi Popov, PhD, QEP, CMC is an associate professor at the University of Central Missouri where he teaches risk assessment. His research interests include industrial hygiene, safety management, risk assessment, PtD, air quality, alternative fuels, LEAN Six Sigma practices, and business aspects of Environmental, Health and Safety. His experience is unique with both civilian and military environmental, health and safety programs. Bruce K.

Описание: Risk assessment is the key to successful management of health and safety at work. Risk assessments are carried out in order to quantify and evaluate the
significance of workplace hazards so that appropriate control measures can be put in place. Usually, a written record of the assessment is required, detailing the following information:
the hazards - and how much risk is associated; the risk - with appropriate control measures; and, deadlines - to follow-up the risk assessment to ensure the risk is managed.
Failure to carry out risk assessments - punishable by law - is often due to lack of a suitable risk assessment system. "Tolley's Risk Assessment Workbook - Manufacturing" provides that
system, both in the form of key background information on how to carry out a risk assessment - understanding relevant legislation and regulations - but most importantly by providing:
Checklists - highlighting key industry-specific hazards and control measures; Questionnaires - highlighting key questions the risk assessor should ask when analysing the risk posed by
the hazard; and, Action Plans
to ensure the risk assessment is followed up and completed. The workbook offers a practical risk assessment system.
It shows you how to comply with the law and gives
you the foundations of a logical procedure that can be understood easily, put into placed quickly where necessary and adapted to your organisation's needs. "Tolley's Risk Assessment
Workbooks" is a series of practical workbooks providing you with all the information you need to conduct risk assessments in industry-specific areas including: Manufacturing, Retail,
Education, Offices, Construction, and Utilities. A special "Risk Assessment Workbook on Stress" has also been developed in order to facilitate management of this issue which is of key
concern to all organisations.
This book provides a practical risk assessment system. It shows how to comply with the law. It includes checklists, questionnaires and action
Описание: Deals with quantified risk assessment (QRA) as applied specifically to offshore installations and operations. This book includes chapters which are devoted to analytical approaches to escalation, escape, evacuation and rescue analysis of safety and emergency systems.

Описание: Struggling to apply the principles of PRINCE2T to make the method work in practice? This title features real life examples and case studies, links between related components and processes, and guidance on how to fine-tune the method to suit situation and size.
Описание: Safety is an important issue. International standards such as ISO and IEC advocated goal-based procedures of designing safer systems. This book is a methodological approach to the goal-based safety design procedure. It presents accident statistics and safety goals. It shows how to calculate safety criteria from the PRA models.
Описание: Human experience has shown how great cities, nations, and empires have either collapsed or retired from their predominant stature when natural resources are depleted to an extent that exceeds the ability of the environment to restore or replenish their supply. This book explores the challenges facing coastal areas during the next few decades and the difficult decisions needed to prevent a repeat of the past. Establishing, maintaining or enhancing a sense of environmental security in different coastal regions and improving the management of critical infrastructure will require (i) matching human demands with available environmental resources; (ii) recognition of environmental security threats and infrastructure vulnerabilities; and, (iii) identification of the range of available options for preventing and/or minimizing natural disasters, technological failures, and/or terror actions. This book emphasizes beliefs that the convergence of seemingly disparate viewpoints and often uncertain and limited information is possible only by using one or more available risk assessment methodologies and decision-making tools such as multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA).
Описание: After all the research on agricultural risk to date, the treatment of risk in agricultural research is far from harmonious. Many competing risk models have been proposed. Some new methodologies are largely untested. Some of the leading empirical methodologies in agricultural economic research are poorly suited for problems with aggregate data where risk averse behavior is less likely to be important. This book is intended to (i) define the current state of the literature on agricultural risk research, (ii) provide a critical evaluation of economic risk research on agriculture to date and (iii) set a research agenda that will meet future needs and prospects. This type of research promises to become of increasing importance because agricultural policy in the United States and elsewhere has decidedly shifted from explicit income support objectives to risk-related motivations of helping farmers deal with risk. Beginning with the 1996 Farm Bill, the primary set of policy instruments from U.S. agriculture has shifted from target prices and set aside acreage to agricultural crop insurance. Because this book is intended to have specific implications for U.S. agricultural policy, it has a decidedly domestic scope, but clearly many of the issues have application abroad. For each of the papers and topics included in this volume, individuals have been selected to give the strongest and broadest possible treatment of each facet of the problem. The result is this comprehensive reference book on the economics of agricultural risk.
