Abstract This report is part of a general review of a priori risk analysis methods. The first part (ND 1768-138-90: "1. From inspection and checking to system ergonomics") focussed more on risk control procedures and ergonomic methods (workplace analysis, general analysis). This 2nd part looks at methods and tools generally grouped under the heading "systems safety". In condensed form it covers the essentials of this predominantly technical approach to occupational risk prevention. As well as a methodological and technical review of the subject, it addresses the questions raised by the implementation of these methods: data reliability, probability evaluation, the notion of "human reliability".
