Societal Risk: Initial briefing to Societal Risk Technical Advisory Group

FABIG Members: Log-in to access all FABIG resources

SUMMARY

The Societal Risk Technical Advisory Group is made up of a small number of academic, industry and government specialists who have been asked to advise HSE and departments on matters identified by respondents to the consultation exercise CD212 (Proposals for revised policies to address societal risk around onshore non-nuclear major hazard installations’) on the estimation of societal risk from on-shore, non-nuclear, major hazard installations. This report captures some of the technical matters relating to societal risk methodology and presents the technical issues which need to be resolved prior to the development and implementation of any system for explicit attention to societal risk in the application of the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations (COMAH) and land-use planning (LUP).

Status

This report was produced as part of a briefing pack of written and oral information designed to ensure a common baseline of understanding for members of the Societal Risk Technical Advisory Group. The report is not a comprehensive statement of HSE operational policy or technical positions, to do so would have resulted in a much longer document and was not necessary for the work of the Technical Advisory Group.

This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including any opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the author(s) alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy
