In the 3 rd edition of the Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality, the World Health Organisation (WHO, 2004) emphasis the preparation of risk-based Water Safety Plans (WSPs) to manage risks to drinking water consumers. WHO, among others, emphasise that the entire supply system, from source to tap, should be considered when managing risks. The WSP framework(More)
It is recognized that the usual output of a fault tree analysis in some studies is not sufficiently informative. For added value in a widely used instrument for doing risk analyses, a Markovian approach is suggested. It is shown how to extend the calculations of the standard fault tree gates, so that information is available not only on the failure(More)
Drinking water systems are vulnerable and subject to a wide range of risks. To avoid sub-optimisation of risk-reduction options, risk analyses need to include the entire drinking water system, from source to tap. Such an integrated approach demands tools that are able to model interactions between different events. Fault tree analysis is a risk estimation(More)
Identifying the most suitable risk-reduction measures in drinking water systems requires a thorough analysis of possible alternatives. In addition to the effects on the risk level, also the economic aspects of the risk-reduction alternatives are commonly considered important. Drinking water supplies are complex systems and to avoid sub-optimisation of(More)

Shipwrecks on the sea floor around the world may contain hazardous substances that can cause harm to the marine environment. Today there are no comprehensive methods for environmental risk assessment of shipwrecks, and thus there is poor support for decision-making on prioritization of mitigation measures. The purpose of this study was to develop a tool for(More)
The development of strategies for adapting risk management to suit future water supply systems requires prediction of emerging risks. Identification of existing risks and risk that are likely to be important in the future is a key issue to the TECHNEAU project (TECHNEAU, 2005). This information is essential to the development of adaptive strategies in work(More)
