Engineering Risk Management

Series:De Gruyter Textbook

    • The topic of this book, tough essential, is only seldom a part of university curricula and many professionals do not have the appropriate knowledge for managing risks from an engineering perspective.

    • The ideas, concepts, approaches, methods, etc. presented in this book are written in a logical and easily understandable way, with a strong link to industrial practice.

    • The theories presented in this book are based on both authors' industrial experience as well as on years of teaching to students and professionals in this area.

    Aims and Scope

    The book presents risk management from an engineering perspective. Both a systemic and analytic viewpoint are important in this regard. The introduction to the concept of 'risk' is followed by risk management principles, risk diagnostic, analysis and treatment, event analysis, crisis management, economic issues, risk governance followed by examples of practical implementation in chemistry, physics and emerging technologies such as nanoparticles. Finally, also a number of well-known major industrial accidents are discussed, and how one can learn from accidents. The book is aimed at anyone faced with risk and safety issues. The target audience can be as diverse as students, engineers, scientists, sociologists, psychologists, or actually all practitioners and academics interested in the matter.
