||A method is presented for the quantitative and qualitative analysis of accidents with the aim of improving the prevention of fires and explosions in dust-handling installations. The objectives are to identify the causes of fires and explosions, to estimate their frequency of occurrence, and to propose preventive technical measures. With the help of an interaction matrix, the insufficiencies or over-engineering of these technical measures are identified. A sample of the calculations is given.
