Safety analysis can be applied as a practical tool in occupational safety. It has three main elements: the identification of hazards, the assessment of risks that arise, and the generation of measures to increase the level of safety. A number of simple methods are described that can be used in industry and the workplace, such as deviation analysis, energy analysis and job safety analysis, which address risks in ordinary workplaces. For special cases, more technically oriented methods are presented, such as fault tree analysis, event tree analysis, and HAZOP. The book describes a number of other methods and compares their features. These methods are set out in a step by step manner and practical advise is given on how to perform an analysis. Cost-benefit considerations and other useful background information, such as types of results which can be obtained, are also given.
