Risk assessment has been employed by both planning and statutory enforcement bodies as an aid in deciding whether a particular installation presents acceptable levels of risk to the general public. Many companies have also made extensive use of risk assessment and indeed have been largely responsible for pioneering the techniques. In the past this has been primarily for the purposes of self-examination on safety matters. At the project inception stage it has been used to help decide whether an inherently safer process could be adopted and whether the plant layout and siting was such as to minimise the chance of an incident affecting employees or members of the public or having a 'knock-on' effect on other plant. For existing plant it has been employed to decide on priorities for safety expenditure, to pinpoint where operating and maintenance procedures may need revising and on a wider scale to ensure that the company has adopted a logical and consistent approach to safety. More recently companies have found it has become increasingly necessary to make the findings of a risk assessment available externally to satisfy an enforcement or planning body or to allay public concern.

This paper extends the approach of expressing hazard ranges as determined by application of the various models in the form of simple correlations.
