INTRODUCTION

The word ‘risk’ is a commonly used word and indeed applies to all walks of life. Even simple everyday activities involve some element of risk arising from the existence of diverse conditions with the potential to cause harm and/or disaster and depending on one’s perception of the likelihood and severity of the recognized dangers, appropriate measures are taken to forestall any unpleasant event from occuring. The process of identifying potential dangers, evaluating them in terms of likelihood and severity and taking steps to avert these potential dangers is in a basic sense what risk management is about. The fields of Engineering and Technology are however somewhat distinguished in this discuss of disaster risk management in the sense that the potentials, scope and severity of catastrophic harm that may arise from engineering and technological practices are much more vast when compared to other disciplines.
