Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper explores some of the common difficulties in
interpreting the ALARP principle, and traces the potential
effects of these difficulties on system risk. We introduce two
categories of risk reduction approach which permit us to
characterise the risk profile of a system in more detail and
discuss their application to Systems of Systems (SoS).
