||Analysing the risk of industrial accidents consists of evaluating the likelihood of occurrence of a dreaded event and of its consequences. For evaluating this likelihood, an approach based on frequential statistics approach was commonly used, an approach which however is lacking in terms of both rigour and objectivity. This publication explains the advantages of an approach based on Bayesian statistics and subjective probability, which takes into account all available knowledge for carrying out a hazard evaluation, including lessons learned from accidents and expertise.
