商品描述

Risk analysis involves the quantification of risk and is essential to all areas of science and engineering. Analysing risk ensures that the hazards or detrimental impacts of research and other activities are identified, mitigated and managed.


The interpretation and implementation of risk assessment has evolved independently within disciplines, which means that small errors in communication have in some cases led to large scale consequences. The aim of this reference text is to provide a common language and consistent approach to risk assessment across disciplines through the collation of detailed, real examples and scenarios.


Examples are drawn from industries including defence, explosive manufacturing, mine action, nuclear, science education and engineering, and focus on key risk topics such as tolerability, data collection, hazard identification and hazard interpretation. The approaches communicate common challenges and are compared and contrasted, with a particular focus on the terminology used.


The book is essential reading for scientists and engineers that undertake risk assessment, including industry practitioners, researchers in academia and those with a general interest in improving risk assessment processes. It is also a valuable reference for science and engineering students that regularly undertake risk assessments or study courses on risk assessment.


Key Features:


  • Proposes a common language and consistent approach to risk assessment across science and engineering disciplines
  • Creates a bridge between industrial and academic approaches to risk analysis and encourages cross-disciplinary collaboration
  • Collates detailed practical examples of risk assessment
  • Explores the diverse undertaking of risk assessment in a wide range of disciplines
  • Analyses the approaches taken, with a particular focus on the terminology used


商品描述(中文翻譯)

風險分析涉及風險的量化,對於科學和工程的各個領域都至關重要。分析風險可以確保研究和其他活動的危害或不利影響得到識別、減輕和管理。

風險評估的解釋和實施在不同學科內獨立演變,這意味著溝通中的小錯誤在某些情況下可能導致重大後果。本參考文獻的目的是通過彙編詳細的實例和情境,為不同學科的風險評估提供共同的語言和一致的方法。

這些實例來自包括國防、爆炸品製造、地雷行動、核能、科學教育和工程等行業,並聚焦於可容忍性、數據收集、危害識別和危害解釋等關鍵風險主題。這些方法傳達了共同的挑戰,並進行了比較和對比,特別關注所使用的術語。

本書是科學家和工程師進行風險評估的必讀之物,包括行業從業人員、學術界的研究人員以及對改進風險評估流程有興趣的人。對於經常進行風險評估或學習風險評估課程的科學和工程學生來說,它也是一本有價值的參考書。

主要特點:
- 提出了一種在科學和工程學科中進行風險評估的共同語言和一致方法
- 在工業和學術風險分析之間建立了橋樑,鼓勵跨學科合作
- 彙編了詳細的風險評估實例
- 探討了在各種學科中進行風險評估的多樣化做法
- 分析了所採取的方法,特別關注所使用的術語
