The I-RISK project was funded under the European Commission's 'Environment and climate' programme of the fourth framework programme for research and technological' development (1994-98). The objective of I-RISK was to design a methodology to quantify the effect of safety management systems (SMS) of industrial installations at risk of loss of containment (LOC) of hazardous substances. The I-RISK methodology, inspired by the Seveso II directive, consists of a quantified risk assessment and a management audit. The I-RISK approach was applied to three test cases: a chlorine loading facility, a refinery and an ammonia storage facility. The I-RISK methodology can help to establish whether an industrial installation is on the right track and whether it can meet its safety goals in the near future.
