Abstract

Risk Analysis is a well known methodol-ogy for the assessment of the risk posed by an industrial activity. However, due to the complexities and to the uncertainties associated with some models, its effec-tiveness and use is sometimes questioned. As a consequence, it is not as widely adopted as it would deserve, with detri-ment of the safety of the plant and with a risk for the exposed population higher than might be achieved by applying ade-quate actions deriving from a proper risk management. This paper will present two such examples of application and the ad-vantages they can provide
