Abstract Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) is a standard tool in some high-risk industries (such as the on- and offshore exploration and production and chemical industry). Presently, existing knowledge concerning human error likelihood and human reliability assessment is insufficiently represented in QRAs. In this paper we attempt to implement the quantification of the human factors in a QRA, which we call QRA+. We analysed a specific incident scenario: the risk of overfilling chemical storage ta...

Abstract Most cited research regarding wildlife strikes on airports state that this causes economic losses of approximately USD1.2 billion annually to the global air transport sector. Airport security managers address this problem by deploying several well-known countermeasures, including outsourcing wildlife control services (WCS) to perform preventive actions. Among these actions, the use of raptors plays an important role due to their effectiveness in dispersing wildlife. This paper aims to c...

Abstract For more almost 15 years now the official inspection creed in the Netherlands has been that inspection should be risk based. In this article we have a first look into what has been implemented. We observe (a) that the national policy formulated in 2005 that inspections should be risk-based, step by step has been altered into a focus on indepence of inspections and stronger sanctions, (b) that only a few inspectorates claim to have implemented risk-based inspection and (c) that those ins...

Abstract In emergency evacuation situations, placing an obstacle may be seen intuitively as a worse condition which may result in a slower evacuation time. Nevertheless, it is possible to lower the internal pressure in front of the exit and as a result preventing from clogging. This phenomenon has mainly been studied by numerical simulation, and so far the real-life human evacuation experiments considering different size, shape and placement of obstacles are rarely reported. In this paper, to ve...

Abstract It has been established that design contributes to the occurrence of occupational injuries and illnesses in the construction sector. This has resulted in the need for designers to implement design for occupational safety and health (DfOSH), which is required by legislation in some countries. Consequently, designers (as individuals or organisations) should seek to mitigate occupational safety and health (OSH) risks through design. In order for design firms to do this effectively, they ne...

Abstract The safe and efficient operation of coal mines is inseparable from rational production deployment. As for outburst-prone coal mines, the production deployment is more complicated due to the introduction of gas disaster control processes, which can easily cause continuity tension and even coal and gas outburst accidents. Therefore, it is necessary to establish an evaluation system for the rationality of production deployment of outburst-prone coal mines. In this paper, based on the produ...
Abstract This article reports on the endeavor to merge the fields of anthropology and fire safety engineering in holistic fire safety assessments within the maritime and offshore industries. The article suggests a combination of the two disciplines to transition from an interdisciplinary approach towards transdisciplinarity. The approach has been developed and adjusted during three cases of risk analyses and prevention strategies on fire safety. The article presents two methodological insights i...

Abstract Safety and health have become important cornerstones of social development. However, occupational safety and health problems in developing countries, such as China, remain serious. How to effectively manage occupational safety and health problems has become an important question. Based on the perspectives of accidents, the economy, law, society, medical service, and macro governance, this study analyzed the various strands of the research undertaken by domestic and foreign scholars on o...
