E. , 2004). If risk is a summary term then it should be derived from a more detailed analysis. The second stage of a triage is then to refer back to this detailed analysis for those hazards for which such an assessment is required. To my mind, this constrains the operational definition of risk to be the mathematical expectation of loss, and the detailed analysis for which it is the summary is the loss probability distribution function. The usual feature of this distribution for natural hazards would be a long right-hand tail (positive skewness), indicating that small losses are common, but occasionally very large losses occur.

The risk is termed the ‘average annual loss’ (AAL), and represents the ‘fair price’ for an insurance premium. There is a very strong connection between this definition of risk and the EP curve: risk is the area under the EP curve. g. Grimmett and Stirzaker, 2001: 93), but it is, from our point of view, a very useful one as well. It indicates that the gross comparison of different hazards, or of different actions for the same hazard, can be done by plotting their EP curves on the same graph and comparing the area underneath them.

3, such an approach can help to narrow all three ‘gaps’ in current practice. References Ambraseys, N. and Bilham, R. (2011) Corruption kills. Nature 469: 53–155. Bilham, R.
