The major accident failure rates project

Concept phase
The major accident failure rates project is a joint venture between the UK and the Netherlands to address the feasibility of updating generic failure rates used in risk assessment for major hazard chemical plants. The approach addresses the two essential parts of a failure rate:
- accidents where there has been a loss of containment of a hazardous chemical; and
- the plant containment population from which the accidents originated.
The key parties working together are the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) in the UK and the National Institute for Public Health and Environment (RIVM) in the Netherlands, coordinated by White Queen Safety Strategies. The key stakeholders in the project are the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the UK and the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment (SZW) in the Netherlands. While the ultimate aim of the project is to provide the foundation for developing failure rates there are other reasons for its inception, particularly concerns about major accident analysis and causation sharing that have arisen after the Buncefield and Texas City accidents.
