Following the definition of risk as a combination of a probability for its happening and the size of its damage, or, as a combination of the probability of a dangerous event, frequency of the exposure and the size of the damage, a significant deviation away from the risk function in the areas of the occupational safety and health (OSH) and the fi re protection (FP) has been noticed. In the mathematical expression of the fi re risk according to the de Gustav Purt method (Purt, 1972), risk factors identification was attempted. The basis for this fi re risk evaluation identification method within the OSH area was developed by the authors from the HTS in Novi Sad (Nikolic and Gemovic, 2009a; Nikolic and Gemovic, 2009b). This way accomplished a simultaneous calculation of all fi re risks. The structures’ and their content’s risks have been processed, as well as risks towards people in the structures and firemen extinguishing the fi re. Since the method has a communicative character, the calculated risk values are easily and accurately measurable by comparison.
