Risk Management According to the IS EN 62305
Risk management for structures and buildings according to IEC/EN 62305-2* The risk potential of structures is assessed in a risk analysis. The result of this analysis allows to take measures which reduce the risk. The aim is to select economically reasonable protection measures which are adapted to the properties and utilisation of the building. A risk analysis allows to define the class of LPS** and a complete protection concept including the necessary shielding measures against lightning electromagnetic impulses (LEMP***). It is supposed to reduce the existing risk to a tolerable risk. Therefore, the tolerable risk is defined when selecting the risks. These tolerable risks are specified in the standard. However, competent bodies may define them differently.
Risks to be considered At the start of the risk analysis process, the focus is on the utilisation of the structure which allows to calculate the risks which have to be considered for the object to be protected.
Four different categories are distinguished in a risk analysis:
Risk R1: Loss of human life
Risk R2: Loss of service to the public
Risk R3: Loss of cultural heritage
Risk R4: Loss of economic value
One or more risk can be relevant for the structure. The planner decides which risks are to be considered.
We create an efficient state-of-the-art lightning protection concept based on this risk analysis
