Abstract In his opening address the Chairman of the Conference drew a parallel between the assessment of new technologies and analysis of the hazards they involve (risk analysis); this analysis should never be the sole responsibility of scientists and technologists, being a subject particularly suited to an integrated approach by natural and social sciences. Papers were presented on the following subjects: present status of risk assessment; reliability and availability of safety devices; risk analysis and risk improvement in industry; application of risk analysis to environmental protection; loss prevention in the process industries; managerial aspects of risk analysis - the contribution of the expert to the prevention of disasters; risk assessment of a liquefied natural gas terminal; etc.
