Modern large-scale industrial systems require special precautions for safe operation and systematic risk analysis is frequently used during system design. The paper reviews a number of problems presently found in the use of risk analysis as a basis for effective risk management. There is a need for more explicit formulation of the preconditions of safe operation and for better communication to the operating organization. Operation in a competitive environment requires endless adaptation and optimization by management and,consequently, visible indicators of the boundaries of safe conditions are necessary. The paper adopts an integrated system point of view in order to identify cross-disciplinary issues involving social and management sciences as well as engineering.
