Abstract The Societal Risk Technical Advisory Group is made up of academic, industry and government specialists who have been asked to advise HSE and departments on policies to address societal risk around onshore non-nuclear major hazard installations. This report captures some of the technical matters relating to societal risk methodology and presents the technical issues which need to be resolved prior to the development and implementation of any system for explicit attention to societal risk in the application of the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations (COMAH, see CIS 06-515) and land-use planning.
