It offers explanatory and practical methods which have been applied - and have been seen to work - in high technology, high risk environments, particularly (though not exclusively) to potentially hazardous situations in industries such as process control, nuclear power, and petrochemicals. The book provides the practitioner with a comprehensive toolkit of different tactics and procedures, supported by guidance on the selection of the optimum approach for various diverse applications. The book covers risk assessment and the HRA process, as well as methods of task analysis, error identification, error quantification, the representation of error in risk analysis, error reduction analysis, quality assurance, and documentation. It details experiences via a series of case studies from nuclear, chemical, offshore, and marine HRAs, exemplifying techniques and emphasizing the impact effective HRA can have on existing and design-stage systems."--BOOK JACKET." ;
