Cost-benefit analysis is a challenging element of safety management because managers can choose between adequate safety and possible benefits from production with a lower level of safety. OHS law in most states allows for an almost formal assessment in managing a hazard or risk ‘as far as is reasonably practicable’. But what if that hazard is unknown? Does that mean that a cost-benefit analysis is easy because the cost cannot be determined?
