About the Book

This title examines the concepts of systems reliability and the techniques available for determining both 'technical' and 'human' hazard and risk. Emphasis is placed on technical systems and human factors and the increasing importance of psychological factors in the overall assessment of safety.

This edition includes material that reflects the fact that the tool of Risk Assessment has been taken up by many industrial and commercial sectors since the first edition.
