  • Rather, we use the term RISK

  • A thing is safe if its risks are judged to be acceptable
  • Quantitatively:Risk = Probability of occurrence * consequence of occurrence
risk management

  • Emphasize on the systematic identification, analysis, assessment of all risks inherent in an activity
  • Effective measures can be established to control the risks
