Example text

6. 6(b) shows the application of the model to a refinery incident. 7 The Kletz model Another approach is that taken by Kletz (1988h), who has developed a model oriented to incident investigation. The model is based essentially on the sequence of decisions and actions that lead up to an incident, and shows against each step the recommendations arising from the investigation. 7, which refers to an incident involving a small fire on a pump. L . . . . . . . . 2 Standard Industrial Classification Statistics of injuries and damage in the United Kingdom are generally classified according to the Standard Industrial Classification 1980 (SIC 80).

It is possible to derive from the simpler physical models for different hazards analytical expressions that give the variation of the intensity of the physical effect (thermal radiation, overpressure, toxic concentration)with distance. For some models the variation follows approximately the inverse square law. This aspect is discussed in Chapter 9. With regard to the exposure of the public to process hazards, it is of interest to know the distance at which there might be a significant number of fatalities or injuries and the maximum distance at which any fatality or injury might occur.

This aspect is discussed further in Chapter 9. 9 2/15 Coverage of some books on disasters Bignell, Peters and Pyre (1977) Ferrara (1979) R. 6 Fire Loss Statistics The loss statistics of interest are primarily those for fire loss. These organizations produce annual statistics for fire losses. Loss due to explosions is generally included in that for fire loss. There are no regular loss statistics on toxic release, since this is a rare event and usually causes minimal damage to property. Fire loss data are given in Fire Statistics United Kingdom 1990 (Home Office, 1992), in FPA Large Fire Analysis for 1989 (FPA, 1991) and in Insurance Statistics 1987-91 (Association of British Insurers (ABI), 1992).
