RISK ANALYSIS OF THE OIL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM
This report develops a framework for a risk analysis of the oil transportation system in Washington State which integrates statistics and probability, combinatorial logic, systems engineering, physical and behavorial sciences, reliability, maintainability, and system safety analyses. Three phases are described: risk identification and definition, including gross hazards analysis (GHA) and failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA); risk evaluation using mathematical modeling and fault tree analysis; and risk reduction, discussing alternative selection, decision making, and methods for taking action. Included are recommendations to the State Legislature and a comprehensive bibliography.
