This book describes a number of simple methods that can be used in industry and the workplace. These include deviation analysis, energy analysis, and job safety analysis, and for special cases, the author presents more technical methods, such as fault tree analysis, event tree analysis, and HAZOP. He also describes a number of other methods and compares their features. He describes these methods set step by step, gives practical advice on how to perform the analyses, and includes cost-benefit considerations and other background information.
