Fatality Risk Assessment

Part of the Springer Series in Reliability Engineering book series (RELIABILITY)


The chapter discusses models for various elements of fatality risk; including occupational fatality risk, immediate fatality risk, risk during escape, evacuation and rescue operations, as well as transportation fatality risk. Finally, diving risk and risk during cessation operations are discussed.
