The textual content offers a pragmatic consultant for decision-makers in regulatory our bodies and corporations with a non-technical heritage. Scientists and engineers who're no longer but conversant in the suggestions of hazard evaluate and who need a survey of a few basics of, and central effects from, chance evaluate reports and ways essentially for purposes within the context outlined via the "Seveso Directives" also will locate this publication useful.

This effort is directed in discussing together the results of the safety studies and primarily in finding an agreement on exclusion distances or on areas where limitations have to be imposed in new developments around the hazardous installations. For each site where the procedure has been completed the exclusion and restriction zones are indicated in publicly available documents; it is assumed that reference scenarios are more easily understood by the public than probabilistic risk arguments. 14 In Germany no examples of risk criteria or of reference scenarios have been published.
The experience with their application is, however, moving towards allowing a certain flexibility for existing installations. 13 In the United Kingdom, the probabilistic approach to risk assessment is favoured. Up to now, quantitative risk criteria have been published only as far as the control of land-use in the vicinity of industrial facilities is concerned, whereas criteria for siting of new activities are being developed. Guidance has been developed by the HSE, , the governmental technical body for the control of health and safety in working activities.
The exercise was performed by 11 teams representing 25 organisations (research institutes, engineering companies, authorities, industries) from different European countries. As reference plant, an ammonia storage facility was taken. The project was subdivided into two phases. The first one aimed at a comparison of the existing approaches to risk analysis, from hazard identification to the calculation of the individual risk contours. The objective of the second phase was to 15 identify the single factors contributing to the overall difference in the results, and this phase was designed on the basis of the results of the first phase, [50-51 ].
