(English)Fire Risk Assessment
To give students a thorough understanding of assessment of fire and risk. Underlying causes for possible ignition potential outcomes should be identified with regard to people, material assets and the environment. Measures (barriers) to prevent ignition and escalation included along with cost of the measures. The subject deals with the use of national and international standards for conducting qualitative and quantitative analyzes. Assessment of different criteria for acceptance of risk and uncertainty and sensitivity analyzes disclosed.
