    Societal Risk Assessment Tim Pattenden, Tessella Plc Abstract One measure of risk in the presence of potentially dangerous events is societal risk. Societal risk can be expressed graphically as the frequency of N or more fatalities occurring, often referred to as the ‘FN curve’.File Size: KB. We take our point of departure from the Norwegian Gene Technology Act (GTA) which states that risk assessment of GMOs should be supplemented by an assessment of the sustainability, ethical and societal impact prior to regulatory approval of the novel products.

The objective of this symposium was to develop a balanced view of the current status of societal risk assessment's role in the public policy process and then to establish, if possible, future directions of research.

Accordingly, the symposium was structured in two dimensions; certainty versus uncertainty and the subjective versus the objective. This volume constitutes the papers and discussions from a symposium on "Societal Risk Assessment: How Safe is Safe Enough?" held at the General Motors Research Laboratories on OctoberThis symposium was the twenty-fourth in an annual series sponsored by the Research Laboratories.

Initi ated inthese symposia have as their objective the promotion of the interchange ofknowledge. An early societal risk criterion utilizing FN curves was that promulgated by the Provinciale Waterstaat Groningen (PWG, ), the ‘Groningen criterion’.

The Groningen criterion is illustrated in Figure There are three zones and two bounding curves. In one zone, the risk is unacceptable, in one it is acceptable, and in one further assessment is required.

Societal Risk Assessment by Richard C. Schwing, Walter A. Albers,Springer edition, paperback. -Yovan Lukic, Arizona Public Service Company As the demands of government agencies and insurance companies escalate, societal risk assessment and management become increasingly critical to the development and use of engineered systems in the full range of industrial installations.

Packed with real-world examples and practical mathematical and Cited by: We argue that an objective assessment of trends in global disaster risk due to climate extremes requires (1) accurate regional disaster impact data of extreme events, (2) local demographic and socioeconomic indicators, for example, on poverty, inequality, and education to understand the societal vulnerability, and (3) high-level information on.

RAND researchers are calling this growing threat virtual societal warfare in an analysis of its characteristics and implications for the future. To understand the risk of virtual societal warfare, the authors surveyed evidence in a range of categories to sketch out some initial contours of how these techniques might evolve in the : Michael J.

Mazarr, Ryan Michael Bauer, Abigail Casey, Sarah Heintz, Luke J. Matthews. A common form of risk tolerability criteria for societal risk is the FN-diagram, where two criteria lines divide the space into three regions – where risk is intolerable, where it is broadly acceptable and where it requires further assessment and risk reduction as far as is reasonably practicable, as shown in Fig 1.

P.L.B.A van Geel December HSE should base its risk assessment approach for societal risk on the accident record achieved.

It is often argued that risk assessment methods and data give pessimistic estimates of the expected numbers of fatalities and those methods and data should be modified to match history. Social science research on comparative risk assessment (or risk ranking) can be helpful to all levels of government to establish regulatory and legislative priorities.

Comparative risk assessment activities should involve elected and appointed officials; members of business, environmental, and civic organizations; and lay persons. Subjective judgments, whether by experts or lay people, are a major component in any risk assessment.

If such judgments are faulty, efforts at public and environmental protection are likely to be misdirected. The present paper begins with an analysis of biases exhibited by lay people and experts when they make judgments about by: The Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) provides an open forum for anyone interested in risk analysis.

Risk analysis is broadly defined to include risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, risk management, and policy relating to risk.

Our interests include risks to human health and the environment, both built and natural.
