RR283 - Development of an intermediate societal risk methodology

Environmental Resources Management (ERM) was commissioned by the Operational Policy Unit (OPU) of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to investigate the development of an Intermediate Societal Risk Methodology. The investigation was undertaken between May and October 2003, and revised in July/August 2004.

The objective of the investigation was to identify the requirements of a 'rapid' societal risk tool that could provide improved 'resolution' compared to ARICOMAH, and would be less resource intensive than the calculation of 'full' FN curves.
