formal risk assessments

KPN Risk Analysis – this analysis focusses on the risk associated with the climbing infrastructure proposed for the Kangaroo Point North climbing development in Brisbane. It is unique in that it treats the roped climbing system as a safety function subject to a probability of failure on demand. This formalism allows a relationship to be drawn between bolt specification, and the rate of materialisation of severe injury from bolt failure.
