This paper describes a recent problem where risk analysis enabled the British Government to formulate a compromise solution which avoided costly extreme courses of action. A major leisure centre had been built inside the Inhabited Building Distance of a busy explosives wharf. The paper indicates the techniques of the analysis and discusses ways to present data on casualties and damage in order to provide policy makers with a realistic basis for decisions.
