Taking into account preventive measures in the French approach for risk assessment

Abstract : The Council Directive 96/82/EC of 9 December 1996 concerns the control of major-accident hazards involving dangerous substances. It is known as SEVESO II Directive. It aims at the prevention of major accidents and the limitation of their consequences for men and environment. It applies to industries that use a significant amount of hazardous materials. Operators of such industries must demonstrate that they have assessed the risks and manage it. They must define a major accident prevention policy (MAPP), a safety management system (SMS) and finally an adequate response plan in case of emergency. As the documents produced by the operators have to be demonstrative, it would be useful that the analysis led by the operators follows a methodology recognised by the Competent Authorities and the decision-makers in charge of risk control. The approach described in this paper is being elaborated for that purpose. It derives from the French deterministic approach and will include a formalised analysis of the safety measures taken by operators to prevent major accidents.
