Hazards Analysis: Reducing the Impact of Disasters, 2nd Edition

John C. Pine

CRC Press


316 pages




Pine and colleagues describe a structure and process for understanding the nature of natural and human-caused hazards and strategies for building sustainable communities. They demonstrate how to use hazard analysis to identify and prioritize risks and to develop approaches to community hazard mitigation. Public, private, and non-profit organizations can use the approach. Among the topics are identifying hazards, modeling natural and human-caused hazards, assessing the risk of hazards, risk communication, and the hazards risk management process.
