A method to judge the internal risk of establishments with dangerous substances

Een methode voor het beoordelen van het risico voor werknemers van bedrijven met gevaarlijke stoffen

Synopsis

In the report, an assessment method is described for judging the acceptability of the internal risk of an establishment, as presented in the safety report. The starting point is an establishment with an adequate safety management system. The assessment method consists of checking to see whether the information required is given, comparing the risk and risk-acceptance criteria of the establishment with a set of normative risk criteria and verifying the correctness of the calculated scenario probability and the consequences for a sample set of scenarios. The assessment method represents a first step towards a complete and more rigorous method for judging the internal risk of an establishment.
