Abstract [en]

The background of the research program presented here is several contemporary trends. On the one hand, the present dynamic and competitive society requires new approaches to risk management. On the other hand, the rapid development of information technology offers new opportunities for designing effective decision support tools. Risk management in the present context is directed towards control of the risk related to the dynamic course of events following a disturbance of a potentially hazardous physical process. Risk related to long term exposure to the influence of hazardous substances or improper work conditions is not considered. The following chapters discuss the requirements for an effective risk management strategy and suggest some promising avenues for the development of operational tools for accident analysis, organizational safety reviews, and proactive risk management strategies for various different hazard domains. A taxonomy of hazard sources and their respective control

requirements is suggested to have a consistent basis for the development of proactive risk management strategies suitable for a dynamic, competitive society
