Some important major accidents in the process industries are used as starting point to prove importance of safety engineering and as a starting point to explain the principles of the international regulations (e.g. Seveso directive) and quantitative risk assessment.
An overview is given of the various internationally accepted qualitative and quantitative methods for the analysis and the assessment of occupational risks, their specific features and application fields. The pro and cons of every method are illustrated by a number of case studies and personal exercises.
