Abstract This comprehensive reference/self-teaching textbook covers at length today's most sophisticated system safety processes offering step-by-step instruction for all programme procedures - from formulation and management to conducting required analysis that can be directly applied to achieve a satisfactory state of safety. Six chapters of the book, each containing exercises for self-teaching, focus respectively on management, statistical methods, network analysis, hazard analysis, risk analysis and decision analysis. Statistical tables and answers to quantitative exercises are summarised in appendices.
