- Talk to your organisation’s safety and environmental officers about risk before the analysis starts
- Don’t expect to get exact numbers for acceptable risk and if you do, look at them carefully to judge how you can use them in the analysis
- Make certain that those who are ultimately responsible for endorsing the organisation’s risk management policies know the types of questions you will be asking once the analysis starts
- Ask safety and environmental staff to comment critically on the failure management plans that you will be generating
