One of the requirements for presentation of risk results is that a comprehensive overview of the risk picture shall be given, together with a detailed insight into conditions and vulnerabilities. These are relatively vague requirements, and it is probably not clear what is implied. This chapter attempts to fill that gap, and to illustrate how the risk picture on an installation may be presented. Only fatality risk to personnel is considered for an FPSO concept with hypothetical results. Only fatalities on the installation are included. The emphasis is on presentation of risk. Any reference to risk tolerance criteria is therefore omitted.
