Abstract

This chapter describes the implementation process of the F-N curve, which makes possible to represent the societal risk and subsequently verify its acceptance with respect to the ALARP criterion. The F-N curve is evaluated starting from the frequencies of occurrence of the accidental events and the number of fatalities determined by each accidental scenario.
