Title Evaluation of a priori risk analysis methods. 1 - From inspection and checking to system ergonomics
Original title Bilan des méthodes d'analyse à priori des risques. 1. Des contrôles à l'ergonomie des systèmes [in French]
Bibliographic information 1st Quarter 1990, No.138, Note 1768-138-90, p.91-122. Illus. 91 ref.
Abstract This paper is the first part of an evaluation of a priori risk analysis methods. Methods reviewed range from inspection and checking to more complex procedures designed mainly for the diagnosis of organisational risks. Existing methods tend to complement one another. The increasing complexity of the methods used stems from the need to pinpoint risks which are increasingly random and difficult to detect. The 2nd part of the report will be published in Cahiers de notes documentaires 139 (2nd Quarter 1990), and will cover methods under the general heading "systems safety".
